Not true, I'm not going to recommend what I own. If you have always wanted a cj-7, then that's what you should get. The simplest jeeps are the best jeeps on the trail, not much to break and easy to fix if they do break. The cj, yj and tj all fit in this category for the most part. That freak of nature known as the jk that Chrysler designed is another story. You don't want to be out on the trail and shear off one of your plastic fenders, or have your seat warmers stop working, or God forbid have one of your power windows get stuck. All this is hoping your jk was ordered, or has 4x4. Jeep was meant to be a bare bones tough little off road vehicle, stick to the original formula and you will be fine.
