You should get one. The 90-up had fuel injection which mine lacks. A better transmission too, if you get the six cylinder. They are actually pretty reliable unless you turn them into monster rock crawlers...then stuff starts breaking.
I test drove a Miata from 2 generations ago, it was pretty sweet. Not practical at all, but fun to drive. To choose between them, it's the Wrangler any day.

Depending on budget I'd look into a C5 Corvette or C5 ZO6. The regular C5 is the cheaper option and plenty out there that keeps the price low. Dead reliable and if you do a head/cam swap you'll have more power than the same generation ZO6 and will have a fun weekend toy.

That what my coworker was telling me. The reality is I won't be getting anything No money, no time and a 3rd kid on the way.

To further drill in the pain is that my wife told I couldn't get a Manual for my next car either, that I wouldn't enjoy it

I could get a manual $1,000 beater, but its just going to be a massive headache.

It is. I had a 03 wrangler and recently sold it because I'm planning a different jeep build. You got the best of both worlds. A tight nimble car in the GTI, and a fun off roader you can go anywhere with.

FWIW, I got an old Jeep Wrangler (1988) and it's really fun to drive in a different way. Top off for sure. My GTI is the fast track car.

Jeeps are certainly money pits. You have to know when to say when. Off road parts are really expensive so you have to understand what you really need.

Nice YJ! That 4.0 is bulletproof. They'll run for 250k easy.
