It's a purist thing, at least til you get to the TJ...then a CJ can be considered superior due to cheaper lift costs. Lifting that 4-link coil setup is more expensive and involved.
Although through some of the years of Wranglers, the running gear components were "less tough" than in previous models, especially for taking abuse.

I may be way wrong on this , but the YJ and TJ wranglers are the first Jeeps of the Chrysler era maybe? and not true "Jeeps" in the purist's sense?
I have a '00 Wrangler (TJ model - coil springs- inline 6 chrysler engine ) and use it as a second car/weekend ride --- its fun and has more off road capability than i need, but its nowhere near what i would consider "hardcore" like an old school CJ ---- friends refer to it as my "frat boy jeep" and laugh - i have the last laugh in the spring and fall , cruising around with the top off jammin' some Jack Johnson though while they are stuck inside their trucks
Looks like a decent Jeep BB , price on Jeeps in my area seems to be whatever someone else will pay --- when people ask 17k for 10 year old Wranglers with a 4" lift, or 20k for 6 year old Rubicons -- seems to be a seller's market (or these seller's are all on dope) --- $4500 doesnt seem bad

I pound my TJ off-road daily and it has stood up remarkably well. It helps that I put an Aussie locker up front, really handles mud and snow like a tank.
