    looking for a jeep to put a plow on to do small (tiny) lots and make a resi route machine out of it.
    things are seriously overpriced.
    what I want (from this and other forums) is a 97-03 TJ 6 cyliner automatic, hard top.

    What I've got a line on is a
    97 TJ 4 cylinder with a stick and a softtop BUT it has a damn near new Boss plow on it.
    and it's cheaper than most of the above before having to put a plow on it.

    I can fix the softtop/hardtop issue.

    I think i can live with the 4 cylinder issue (can I?)

    but I worry about the stick.
    Am I going to hate the stick? (more importantly is my wife, it's going to be her plow vehicle, she's not really a stick person, she can, but she's meh with it)

    figure we're looking at a 5 grand savings here.

    No problems with my 4 cylinder, and I don't mind the stick. Left leg can get a little tired, but I like it. Plus, maintenance costs are cheaper too to replace clutches. etc.
