Default read this please, need a lead on a cheap old jeep

So I was invited to compete in a beater challege being held at rocks and valleys in September, its a small competition, and the guide lines are each individual or team has $1000 to buy and build a rig, and the last one standin after a day of competition is the winner, there is no prize money or anything, just strictly for a good time, and I was invited so me and another member on here are gonna compete, to my knowledge we r the only gl4x4 members in the competition

So what we need to find is an old cherokee or cj that runs or needs minor, body and frame don't need to be nice just need to be there lol, it only needs to survive one hard day of wheelin
And after we find somethin any and all cheap parts would be appreciated

Please let me know if u know where somethin like that is for sale

I think this competition could be fun
