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

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...

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??

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.
