If you're going to buy a 4-door, get a new one with the better engine. The early models of the current chassis are absolutely gutless. I rented one a couple of months ago on St John, and it wouldn't get out of its own way.

The TJ models (1997 - 2006) are lighter and quicker than the new ones. There's a sh*t ton of upgrades available also.

I had a TJ with a 4 inch Superlift, 33/12.50 tires, and a handful of other mods, and it was a very capable ofroader. The big tires killed gas mileage and were loud, but it was still a decent highway vehicle with the hardtop on it. The later TJ Rubicon models are excellent on & off road.

Only pic I have of my TJ:
