I say tj! when i drove the jk i didn't feel like i was driving a Jeep, it didn't have much power, and it wasn't all that smooth.
Tj vs jk vs YJ..... I say YJ!!!!!! :-)
Isn't that what "real" Jeeps ARE?!!
This is for the earlier pages of idiocy
I cannot take anyone serious that says a CJ, YJ and TJ are the only real Jeeps.
If a real Jeep has a crappy driveline and/or suspension, then you can keep your "real" Jeeps. By the time you fix all the weak parts, its not a Jeep anymore, its a custom rig.
Metal this and metal that, pah, have fun with 10mpg too. My fenders won't turn brown with rust while getting a reasonable 17-20mpg.
I had a Cj7 and a YJ, and got sick of how often they broke. My JK? 2" spacers and 33s, taken everything I've thrown at it and never been in a shop, unlike the fragile CJ and YJ I had which practically lived in the shop.
And the TJs are no better with their stock drivelines and suspension, short of a Rubicon. At least you can take a JK offroad and not worry about cheap control arms or weak rear axles or breaking frame rails or tearing off steering boxes etc...
On top of that, its easier to take apart and maintain.
I drive my JK to colorado, utah etc... every year and its the first Jeep I wasn't worried about weak parts leaving me stranded.
"real" Jeeps, what a joke.
*disclaimer* I love all Jeeps and my CJ and YJ, but the people who hate on the JK really are dillusional
