I'll trade you my 80
Seriously though be patient and you may come across a deal like I did. I got a stock FZJ80 I purchased for $300 (thats right, three bills)! Needed a new rear end but I've got less than $1,000 into her so far. Its a 94, not locked. If I were you I'd keep the jeep for a little longer, its a clean one!
1997 FZJ80 40th locked - ARB front bumper, IPOR skid plate, Slee air dryer guard, Slee rear actuator guard, Slee speedo gear, Carolina Truggies Custom Rear Bumper, Ironman lift, Bilstein shocks, Goodyear DuraTrac 285/75/16
I think most will agree that the 94 80 was the "best" one for some of the following reasons...
1. 1fz-e (4.5l) engine
2. "Toyota" Grill (switched to the bean wearing the sumbrero in 95)
3. Last year without airbags and ABS
4. Lockers available
5. Last year with the a442f tranny which is said to be stronger than the a343f in the 95-97
There are people who swear by the 3fe engine (91&92) becuase of its reliablity and simplicity (i have one and love it) but you will find the majority of people want the newer 1fz-e engine becuase of the extra power (but it had a few more problems). Also the 91 &92 had the a440f auto tranny which was fully hydro and had a lockup torqu convertor which was said to be better than the later a442f (93-94) and much stronger than the a343f (95-97)
