    95 yj for my quad?

    Hey guys i thought i might get your opinion on a deal im thinking about making.

    I know a guy that has a 95 yj 4cyl, auto, w/half doors and hard top bone stock.
    Im thinking of trading him my 05 suzuki 400 atv. Im liking the idea of having a jeep to kick around the hills in, I do have a yota crawler (that im always working on) so this would just be a hunting and trail rig.

    What are your thoughts?
    Thanks
    John

    I really dont plan on using it as a DD. Might drive it in a couple of times a week if i get it but ill be in the slow lane i know.

    If i do get it ill have to hit air sierra up for a turbo or just replace it with a 4.0.

    Keep the thoughts coming, Im still not sure what i might do. I like having the quad to ride with my boys but i really have been wanting a jeep.

    Jeep's probably worth more. I looked up the value on my quad ('05 sportsman 500 ho) not worth anything anymore. I say do it if you would get more enjoyment out of the jeep.

    why not....
    its like a bigger quad.
    you can throw the kids in it and go.
    Plus you'll end up building it in the long run.....

    I dont no that would be kind of cool to get a jeep to take out in the hills but its fun when we do our trail rides to. Especially considering the fact we couldnt do over nighters on the quads anymore

    Not worth the 4.0 conversion unless you plan on putting a lot of $$$ into it. In addition to the engine, you'll have to get the harness, PCM, TCM, BCM (all modules BTW), new trans, etc.
    The 2.5 and auto will be too slow to get out of it's own way on the road but should be fine on the trails.

    Thanks guys, after thinking about it and reading your posts i think im going to pass.
    I had planned on using my quad when we go to the hammers next month anyway and a good 6 cyl 5spd will come my way soon enough. I just have been wanting a wrangler and got a wild hair, so ill be patient and the right deal will come along.
    Thanks for all the input fellas
