Finding the perfect used Jeep is like looking for that proverbial needle in the haystack. What’s perfect for one Jeeper may not be the right choice for another—every Jeep model has its strong and weak points.

In this article, we’ll point out both the good and the bad, so your search will be a little easier. We’ve limited our purview to the traditional Jeeps—the MB, CJ, YJ, and TJ styles—rather than all the other variations and sizes that the complete Jeep history comprises. We’re not saying that there aren’t a lot of good parts and vehicles in the bigger Jeeps, but there’s only so much we can fit in these pages. And whatever you decide to purchase, remember that a stock Jeep is a rare one: Assume that something on a used Jeep has been modified.
