It's not really much fancier than a Tahoe either, especially not the GMT400 Escalades

He's an angel dressed in oilskins; he's a saint in the "Sou'wester,"
He's a pluck as they come, or ever can;
He's a hero born and bred, but it hasn't swelled his head,
For he's just the U.S. Government's hired man.

I'm of the opinion a ZJ is a bit on the heavy side. Tahoes are a full 1500lb heavier. Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu** that.

Now, I'd rock a suburban for road trip use, and that's even heavier, but again. Road trip use. You can comfortably seat 6 adults and all their luggage for cross-country trips, on the cheap.

The last time I had my ZJ weighed, it tipped the scale at 4400 lb. That was before I added my 100 lb worth of sliders. I'm sitting at 4500 lb right now. My buddy's JKRU on 36s (H1 military takeoffs) weighed in a hair over 6000 lb. Compared to other lifted, fully armored off road vehicles, ZJs are relatively light.

Thanks for your input...

I have a suburban a jeep and a honda. Yet, this is a zj thread.


Stay on why we drive zjs over anything else.

Friendly Moderaters would appreciate that.

I wonder how many pages this thread would be if all the chit chat was removed, and just the "you know you drive a ZJ when.." posts were left

Probably like, half, or less.

OT: When you pull it apart in your garage, then realize you don't have the funds to put it back together yet. Oh weell guess that gives me a reason to gut the interior and start another project right??

95 FiveTwo ZJ, DD, Lifted, Locked on 35s, Build (in progress)

Want your zj to be doorless in 60 seconds?

That is the first time, in a nonsense thread like this, that isn't even a sticky, that I've been told to stay on topic. What's the topic here? Circlejerk the ZJ?

I was under the impression noting the ZJ's obvious superiority to the Tahoe was acceptable.

You know you drive a ZJ when your Jeep's forum moderators tell you to get back to talking about how you own a ZJ.
