i'm still waiting for the kidding part.
I "live" in Maryland. I'm from NJ. As far as the xj, keep telling yourself that. The fact is the JK is the most capable off road stock vehicle that Jeep has ever made.

No...

Anyway I've only been to New Jersey once and it was a joke. I'd never live there by choice.

So you're telling me a stock cherokee on 28 or 29 inch tires can outwheel a lifted wrangler. I'm assuming the wrangler would have at least 31s since it's lifted. Where in the world would an XJ have an advantage besides paved roads? Now I'm really interested.

Didn't say it had an advantage, but in most situations it can perform just as well.

Don't get me wrong, I'm going to miss my home, but what I am saying is that if a litttle bit higher taxes than I was paying in Spring will give me a MUCH cleaner place, then OK. Jersey is a pretty state, parts of Texas are pretty too, but by and large, Houston is dirty. I am not a litter bug, but soo many people in Houston couldn't give a $#!t. We had property in the hill country for a while, in terms of beauty, just as good here as there. Totally different terrain, but just as nice. Hopefully I can make the Jeep meet going on down south of here in Nov. See some of yous guys on the road, I'm the one with the Texas State Troopers Assn. sticker on the back. Bart

welcome to jersey... ill keep a look out for you. obviously the wrangler/cherokee argument is the same around the country lol

o yeah and i personally dont think JK's are anymore a jeep than the cherokee. they are bigger and more expensive/luxurious than the cherokee. take a brand new jk and a beat old cherokee wheeling and see who makes it farther...

Welcome to south jersey, I will start by correcting a myth that i just dont agree with. This central jersey thing came about roughly 8 yrs ago, before that it was little new york up north and mini philly on the bottom. The line is rather simple south of that border is Eagles fans, north of that border is Giants fans. The taxes suck. But where else in the world can you be a half hour away from the shore a half hour away from a major city and get ANYWHERE in a state in about an hour. Plase enjoy it for its vast landscape and varied weather............... NOW!!! my next issue My cherokee came stock on 31s(well the bias ply equivalent of) in 1978 now will it out perform newer things probly not do I care not really this is a knuckle-head debate we are one in the same family of vehicles each with its own talent. Dont underestimate the other guy he may be pulling you out later!
