Question: I am about to purchase my first Jeep
I am new to this post and I am about to buy my first jeep. I have the choice between two rigs and I would like to have your opinion on what will be a better rig for street (local) and off-road excursions. The choices are:
1974 CJ-5 - 304 v8 rebuilt tranny and gears, fiberglass tub, alot of extras including 3 tops 2 sets of doors. beefy suspension will fit 33's easy with no modification.
1984 Cherokee 2 door- 4cylinder engine, body in good condition, suspension lift, pushing 31 inch tires. Roof rack, trail ready
Both jeeps are running and ready to trail but i want to buy the one that will give me the best mix of trail and road (driving to the trail) that I can get. They are both the same price so the issue is only which one is best. Thanks for your help!
