Depends how much money you want to spend. I got many jeeps lol. I have my 2010 SRT to tear up the streets, 1992 YJ wrangler on 33's for some mud, and 2 1969 CJ5's for toys.

I was thinking of buying this v8 cj -7 , and for only $2500 with only 60k it's practically a steal, for some serious dirt but I will have to tow it to the trails, and unfortunately the srt can't do that. I am thinking I will make my lifted 5.7 go fast and that way I can tow and it will be good for some dirt too.

You can tow with an srt. They sell the whole tow kit.

That's less than half of the 545rfe's tow rating. And the srt doesn't have 4wd lo and very low ground clearance. So it's absolutely useless off road, in case I want to retrieve the cj-7 or just take it on the trails. The question is would it be better to make an srt suited for off road or make a 5.7 fast?

Id go fast with a light offroad capability but you could still tow. Best of a bunch of worlds lol
