Re: Is a jeep right for me??
I do not think you can have "reliability" (daily driver) in a pre 74 Jeep used for mud boggs and dunes. I do think you are on the right track in getting a Jeep. The pre 74 models (I have two, one for wheelin and one for parts) are old and can be high maintenance vehicles. Parts can be hard to find. If you plan on doing the maintenance and mechanical work yourself it can be a great learning experience. If you don't feel your up to that challenge, shop prices are "expensive". As far as carrying people its ok for short distances, not long hauls. As far as mud boggs and dunes go, if you take it easy and drive it "SLOW" (not like a monster truck) The jeep will last you for a long time. I think you will get more positive feedback on this subject from the rest of the members on this board. Take a look at some of the posts here they will give you a good idea of what your getting into. Good luck.
