If not, I'll grab a Bronco with 450hp to tear around town.
You ought to check Doc's site ( draaron ) , he is a member here, and has a nice selection for the $$ you want to spend ( not NAS, but diesel )

Parts are cheap and readily available. It's a bit less common than every other CJ out there, and it's longer than the four-door Wranglers.
My Colorado/Texas Scrambler that I've owned and upgraded for the last 12 years may coming up for sale in the next few weeks, if all goes well. Solid, but not much of a looker - I use it for trips far into Mexico, trips up north in the winter, hauling stuff, etc.... PM me if you're interested.
I actually agree with this. I had one and you can get parts anywhere for them (all CJ-7 parts). Great ride too because of the long wheelbase. Similar to the defender crowd too as they are slightly rarer.

Heres the one I built/sold:
