All right, I obviously have the JKU RUBI
I have a TJ, and I like the fully metal grill of the TJ, and I really like the looks, fenders, and the longer suspension links of the JK. I also like the really solid feeling of the doors.
I admire the CJ's/TJ's for their FEEP qualities, but
As I said, to me ther's no comparison to the NEW (this is 2010) JK jeeps Now I'm older than dirt and I've gone thru the eary car/muscle car decades and owned most ofem, so when I bought this JKU, I knew exactly what I was getting
With the lift and 33.2" tires and Rubi xfer case/swaybar edisco/auto/4.10 diff-etc, it'll go wherever I want to go and it'll take my trailer anywhere it goes
I can go 1000 miles freeway, with ease/comfort/mileage and go off-road
I can carry a hell of a load inside and on top and the trailer
I can go from the tent to sleep in the JKU (with comfort) and I'm 6'4"
Ihave a hatch tent, so my wife and I can jump from the tent to the JKU and lock the doors and sleep in comfort (bears)
I have a place in the Nevada desert and I can go from 115° to-7° in comfort and do all the above
There will always be a MKT for older jeeps, thats just the way it is, but detroit won't put TJ's back into production, like they have "Cudas", Camero's, and Challengers and I've owned em all
I've had two 426 Dodge Hemi's and 4 dodge 440 big blocks,three of which were Dodge Ramghargers witha 10" lift
You can always go home, but you can never go back !!
