    Samurais seem to fetch quite a bit of cash, and then there is the issue of weak components and a 1.3L motor (wwweeeeaaaakkkkk).

    I would love to have a Samurai with a Toyota drivetrain, thats whats up, lol.

    Only at first, I can barely tell anymore, lol..


    Honestly your best bang for the buck by far would be a Cherokee, very inexpensive (less than wranglers generally speaking) and TONS of aftermarket, and even used aftermarket parts are very easy to find, since a lot of Jeep stuff is interchangeable..

    You want cheap? Get a 92-95 YJ (1st few years with the YJ weren't rearl good) with the 4cyl and 5 spd and don't go any bigger than 31's. That thing will live a long time like that. The AX5 trans and the Dana 35 rear are the biggest downfalls but will hold up to mild wheeling.

    XJ, FJ60/FJ62, 79-85 Hilux are good choices if you don't want the open air thing.
