Scrambled in the Head
Looking for opinion. I have looked for quite a while for a decent Scrambler in my price range for some time. Had a deal for a few worked out only to fall through because of seller remorse. I don't have $20K+ to drop on a Scrambler, then add in shipping, tax, etc. Seems to me there is a lot of rusty Scrambler projects for $12K+ that still needs years of work and thousands in parts/labor. Basically I feel I am getting priced out of the Scrambler market because I don't have a wad of cash to dump into one. I was looking for something more road ready and not another 3 year + project, I've done that before with my 81. Locally a 2006 LJ came up for sale at a reasonable price, 70K low miles, good condition. I guess I'm not sure if it s just time to let go of the idea of finding a decent priced running/driving Scrambler for like $10K and move onto something more modern so that I can enjoy our limited summer jeep weather here. And if I decide to go with an LJ, what type of things are good or bad that I should look for? The one that I am looking at is an automatic, not thrilled about that. You guys are always full of great insight, so let me know what your gut tells you.
