I've only owned this Jeep since Feb. Every time I talk about making modifications to it, particularly the engine and trans, I get a huge lecture from my dad about how these Jeeps are worthless, the job is more than I can handle, I'm gonna lose interest halfway through the swap and be out the money I've put in it, and sell everything at a huge loss. Right now I've got $3500 saved up for my new drivetrain. I figure I could get a grand for my Jeep. He doesnt mind that I have a toy... but he wants me to sell this one and purchase a newer Jeep that I don't have to replace all the components on immediately. I love the SJ, especially how it looks, but he's got a good point too. A nice XJ would do what I want off road, get better mileage, and probably perform better. A YJ with the 4.0 would do all that, and be topless as a bonus. What do you guys think?
