For coolness, and for working on every week, I'd suggest 76-86.

Got to love the ole CJ's. What do you plan on using the Jeep for? Trails/mud riding or pounding the pavement going back and forth to the mall?
I have a JK and she aint no pavement princess.

The latest JK is more advanced than ever before. The TJ some say are great because of the straight 6. Nice but I still think the JK is more advanced and a better looker. Sure and old CJ has a cool factor but you better know mechanics to keep it running.

Just make sure you get a 2 door

For a driver and weekend trail rider i would look for a 97-06 TJ with the 4.0L inline 6cyl.

ETA: I had a 2001 and regret selling it. Had the danna 44 rear end.

Seriously man, Jeeps are so overplayed. Everyone thinks they are cool and wants one. I'm not a follower, and like to live outside of the box. Toyotas are more reliable and have almost as big/solid aftermarket as Jeeps.

Don't do the same exact thing as everyone else. It has been done a million times. Your Jeep will be just like every other one no matter what you do. I can guarantee there is another one just like it even if you put 54s on the damn thing. Might as well get a F150 and keep it stock. They are almost that popular.

Get an early to late 90s Landcruiser or an earlier 95-04 Tacoma and go to town. Besides, they are more reliable from the get go. Better engines, stock lockers, solid axles, perfectly matched power to power train, comfortable, etc.

You drive a lifted F-250! Thats about as much of a following act as you can get.

More solid than a Toyota V6 or 4cyl? I don't know where you get your info, but it is wrong

Only on a Rubicon($$$). I haven't ever heard of someone tearing up stock Toyota axles with lower than 35s unless they are doing serious rock crawling. And you can get lockers on just about every one of them stock(not expensive Rubicon)

Not lifted, and what else would I tow 15-20k pounds with, a CJ-7? My truck is all go and no show. Nothing is for looks

As will your Tacoma. Unless you do some crazy custom job that you will never resell, you aren't going to have a vehicle that millions don't have.

I got my wife the 2013 charokee. It's a badass woman's vehicle.

I'd go with rubicon. If I didn't recently buy myself a '11 GMC 4x4 I'd probably be in the market for a rubicon.
