Well I have had three Jeeps before my JKU. 95 YJ horse and buggy compared to everything else. 98 Tj a little bit better but, still lacking. 05 LJ much better than the last two ride quality wise but, not much leg room are arm room to move around. I will say the JK is more car like somewhat but, its still a Jeep being its more versatile than any of its previous models were. I use to hate the JK'S and really hate the 4 doors being I thought Jeep had gotten away from there heritage but, I can honestly say I was stupid for never really giving it a chance. I have had my JKU for a few months and I love it more everyday I drive it. It’s very quiet and peaceful to ride in as well as having much more room to haul things while still being a Jeep. The crazy thing is I get way better gas mileage than any of my previous Jeeps ever did with much more power on the highway. I was able to haul a baby crib with the back seats folded down and there's no way I could have done that in an YJ, TJ or LJ. Everyone will have there own take on the JK but, most that have come from an older Jeep will say its light years better in every aspect. That’s not to say that the older Jeeps are bad its just times have changed and who don't want a little more from a Jeep than just climbing rocks or going in a mud pit? I use to love the 4.0L and though I still like it the 3.8L V6 is a MUCH BETTER ENGINE all around. It has a much more usable power band and is still simple pushrod design that’s proven without the dated flat tappet camshaft. Trust me that’s saying alot for Chrysler engines lol. I will still have a place in my heart for older Jeeps but, there is no way in hell I would give up my JKU for one no matter what the older Jeep had. To me it would be like coaching the NFL and going back to high school football.
Soccer six in the mix.
