Nope. None at all. However, I do have a treasure hunt idea. I'm sure that my old zj is in a junk yard around Denver. Someone needs that engine!

When no matter weird noises, shift points, electrical changes, engine misses, headliner put up with thumbtacks, or having the transfer case lever where you want it and not sure where it is mechanically, still starts every day and gets you to and from work, and all off road spots you intend to go. Fishing tackle always in the back, this girl gets me where I need to go.

When you see a $40,000 jk mall crawler sitting in a parking lot and know you've kicked more mud off your boots than its seen in its life. And you still think your 15 year old scratched and dented zj looks 10x better

It seems like there are hundreds of JK's running around here. Easily top 5 most common vehicle along with Toyota 4Runners and Camry's around here. Oddly enough quite a few wheel, out of the 12-15 guys in my Jeep club that regularly meet up and wheel at least half have JK's. Quite a few JK's in the neighboring Jeep club as well....there are only 2 other XJ's besides mine and 1 ZJ that I have ever seen off road here.

Easily hundreds of jk's in my area (military base) but the only one I ever seen on the trails is my cousin when he goes with me. Other then that I only see yj's, cj's and xj's out there.
