Have you priced a Jeep recently? In our neck of the woods any ’97 or newer Jeep Wrangler is $5,000-plus! We considered the less expensive YJs but really wanted to build a coil-sprung Jeep as a project. We felt that our buying price of 5K wasn’t a total waste since this ’97 Jeep has lived a charmed life and probably never saw dirt in its 125,000 miles. There wasn’t a rock scratch or hidden dirt clod to be found underneath.
