I think a stock jeep is still one of the best wheeling machines. There are not to many vehicle you can go from show room to wheel and be as capable as a jeep. Trust me you will be pleased with what you get. We all were at one time. It is just one of those things you will get out there and realise you want a little better traction and will get tires then you will want a little more clearance so you will get a lift and so on and so forth you will end up with a rig you love.
x2 what jkurubi11 said.
IMO the stock Jeeps are what you want to buy for modding because you don't have to figure out what some hack did to it before you owned it. Even a stock Jeep is a very fun DD and a capable off-roader as it is.
Mine is stock, mine will stay stock.
Mine will go 95% of the places that a lifted jeep will go, and do it a lot cheaper.
If I decide to sell my 97 and get a newer one, it will sell faster.
I don't need a ladder to get in.
