I want to buy a 6cyl Jeep No older than 1990 which is the best year or shall I say WHICH years are bad to buy? It's going to be not used for OffRoading but as an everyday car 70mi a day. I'm concerned in engines and transmissions if any years came out bad or if a TJ is better for you money than a YJ. Should I get a 91 and put a new engine in it or just get a 95. Any info is greatly appreciated. Thx.

Looks like you want a car.

My friends with tougher trucks always comment on how much my Jeep TJ drives like a car, that's probably what you're looking for, get the newest one you can find.

Unmodified Jeeps hold their price VERY well, I paid 23 grand for a brand new 2000 TJ sport. The 1999 model was going for 21.5 or something.

On a side note, I've recently seen 2000 TJ's for sale for up to 25 grand. If i sold mine for that price I'd make money, well, if there was no such thing as tax anyhow.

My buddy has one he will sell it is very well maintained. Comes with soft top bikini top, toneau and wind jammer pioneer cd player. k&N air filter. Nice push bar and rear tailight gaurds made from brushed aluminun. It is a 97m and he wants 17500 for it just under 80k [I believe] Oh ya it also has the glas sliding windows as well as 2 sets of soft doors. Very nice condition he is RCMP so he has babied it. It also has a clifford alarm. It is black and it it a Sport model.

Yeah but I did not pay $20,000 for my Jeep, and I probably won't get what I paid for it either!

I was lucky I got a good deal on my Jeep. I bought it 1 year old with only 20k which meant it still had a warranty.

Your right, the TJ does ride nicer than a "horse and carriage" I mean YJ.
