sell the CJ for a YJ??
ok, guys, i need some advice here...i'll see if i can keep it short...basically, i'm thinkin of sellin my cj (which i payed next to nothin for) and buying a YJ instead. As i see it, i have two options: I could fix up the old CJ, but i know it's gonna cost a ton, and i just don't have the cash, and fear that i may never get it back on the road. So i'm thinkin of pickin up a older, cheap YJ, and build it up instead. Rust is a huge concern here, and I just don't have the time or cash to do a body swap, so why not start with something with an alright body? I was planning on putting an entire YJ interor in the CJ, minus the dash, but why not start there already? I know most of you don't, but I like the YJ dash, much more practical, a line of guages, instead of ones scattered all over the place Like the only major expense i have in my cj is my 33" michelins, and they can be put on a YJ. It just seems that a YJ will cost less in the end, be more reliable, and even be little safer (better road manners, "sport" bars). Oh yah, there's also the fact that i have no place to work on my 7, and it's freezin here with two feet of snow, and i do need a vehicle soon (april)
soo...what's your vote? keep the CJ-7, or sell and buy a YJ???
one more thing, how much do you think a 82 cj-7 laredo is worth?or better yet, how much would you pay for it? like it runs, new oil pump, new back brakes, the t-5 was rebuilt a while ago, it's got a hard top and doors, but other wise, it ain't that impressive, lot's of rust in the usual places. thanks a bunch!!!!
