Owned a TJ and it dominated Ithaca ny winters and they were also pretty much metal

what year? i like they way they look on the out side, but all the ones i've seen have carpet floors and plastic peices. i'm kinda looking for no carpet, and metal dash. if i got one of the TJ's could i just take up that carpet? could i also take off any of the plastic from the dash? (these aren't deal breakers, just preferences)

The carpet can come out but it won't hurt it to get wet just pull the drain plugs and drop the top on a sunny day. Not much you can do with the dash.

IMHO you will have a hard time finding a CJ in decent shape for a good price. If the are in good shape people will want top dollar. However if you find one in good shape for your price there is nothing wrong with them other than being 24+ years old. Last CJ was made in 86 with YJs (square lights) from 87-96

Also I like the ride of the coil springs on TJ and JKs better than the leaf springs on older ones.

I can attest to having another four inches of water in my TJ and it drained out no problem when I pulled the plugs. TJ is one tough vehicle. I recommend a rubicon because they came with dana 44 rear

This is mine. Not practical as anything but a toy. Loud, cold, hot, slow.

I'm a big fan of the Jeep too. I just sold my 2000 Cherokee last year with 180k miles. Still in great shape aside from a little rust. Probably one of the best cars I've ever owned. I moved to a '09 Wrangler. It's pretty sweet, but I really miss the inline six. The V6 does offer a slight fuel savings but the reduced torque kind of bums me out.
