Re: What would you do?
Let's look at the pros/cons you would get with each one.
YJ Pros: More power, cheaper lifts and axle swaps
YJ Cons: Poorer ride quality and off-road ability (stock), worse gas mileage, higher miles most likely, and duh, square headlights on a jeep! [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
TJ Pros: Better ride quality, better gas mileage, better off-road ability (stock), round headlights! [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
TJ Cons: Less power, axle swaps and lift kits will cost you approximately 1 kidney
I would say go for the YJ since it's going to be mainly for a toy. I bought my TJ as a daily driver, weekend off-roader. Now that I have a good work truck and a nice ride for the wife's DD and other driving, the TJ sits waiting for summer, except on heavy snow days. If I had known when I bought it that that's what it would end up being, I could have saved a ton of money and headaches by going with a YJ. HTH.
