TJ Year Difference or JK?
Haven't been on the forum in years but I'm looking for some advice if any can be given.
I've had a '00 TJ since I started driving in 2008 with approx 125k miles on it now. I love it to death but have been mulling over the idea to get a new Jeep because I'm getting a little frustrated at the little things. A/C doesnt blow cold anymore, seats getting too worn and ripping, needing a new muffler, and whatever other problems that always come up.
I need help deciding whether or not a JK is worth the money and time or if even a newer model TJ would be best. I love the TJ look however I'd like something a bit more comforting on the inside. Does the newer maybe '06 TJ ride better and generate less noise (less tire choice) than the older models? Does the JK ride much better than the TJ? I havent been driving any besides mine but I'm stuck on whether or not I want to shell out the $$ for a newer model now that its 2013 or search for a nice TJ that wont give me problems either. In my perfect world - a 2010-2013+ wrangler would look like a TJ with an interior of the JK. Or at least be as comforting and easy.
Any help would be appreciated and I can clarify anything if you're confused.
Also I dont do much offroading at all. I haven't gone out to do it even with the TJ I currently own but have used it for some more rugged terrain when necessary and beach driving, heavy snow etc. So while that isnt a big concern of mine I'd still like the ability which to my knowledge is more advantageous in the TJ.
