    1998 tj - $9500

    Now that college is over I need some cash for a daily driver and have to let the TJ go. If you have any questions let me know.

    What kind of crazy talk is this? Now that college is over you can afford to use the TJ as a daily driver or buy a second vehicle. Either way, keep the TJ.

    Take some advice from us older guys who have been there before.

    Keep the TJ, actually go ahead and spend a bunch more money on it. Buy a tow rig and a trailer so you can travel out of town more comfortably. Then you will obviously want a truck bed camper so you have a place to crash on these out of town wheeling trips.

    You'll also need a daily driver since neither the TJ or the tow rig will be good around town.

    By now you are out of parking at your house, so you'll need a bigger house with an RV gate, so start shopping for that too. Have electric run to a spot behind your RV gate because you are going to need battery maintainers on everything. You'll need a tuffshed back there too for storing tools and spare parts for all of your stuff.

    If you do it right, once or twice per year you will have a free weekend where all of your stuff is working and you can go to Payson for a quick wheeling trip on a Saturday before you need to head home to work on all of your unfinished projects around the house.

    Sounds perfect. You also forgot about all the work maintaining the house and having kids.

    Just make sure you budget enough for beer.
