Had a Taco before this Frontier, and another Frontier before that
I’ve always thought about buying a TJ with these specs to have for weekend trips. Any complaints over those 20 years?'99 Wrangler, 5 spd, inline 6. Drove it for 20 years (and still have it) but decided I needed something a bit newer to take into my retirement. Bought my '20 Frontier SV in October 2020 with the anticipation that I'd use it to haul supplies for work I had planned around the homeplace. Now I'm just sitting back and waiting for the economy to recover from its death spiral.

I had a '98 TJ for about ten years. 4.0L, 5-speed. Never had any major issues, biggest problem was the clutch slave cylinder blew out but it was fixed under warranty. The only drawback with mine was it came with the Dana 35 rear (C-clip axle, marginal strength) and 3.07 gears, so once I bumped up the tire size to 31's it was a dog. I would suggest finding one with the Dana 44 rear axle and 3.73 gears if you can (I think Saharas came with this configuration). I never broke the D35, but I also was mindful of my right foot, especially after I installed the Detroit Locker.I’ve always thought about buying a TJ with these specs to have for weekend trips.
