If looking for wild "hard core" wheeling, then I would agree to buy something like a built cj/yj but then recommend a tow vehicle too. That I don't' see happening under the 8k (truck, trailer, and trailrig)
That's pretty much what I've decided to look for although TJs look badass with 35s IMO. My wheeling will be limited to The Mounds, Bunny Hill, Silver Lake and whatever 2-tracks I can find up north. I don't want a dedicated trail rig since I also want to be able to pick up a 12 pack in town with the top off if I want. Finding something in decent shape and lifted with the 4.0 and 5-speed is proving to be quite a bitch. I really want to try to find one with a D44 too in case I decide to add a locker down the road.
