Just scrolling through the thread i found this gem.
I can't believe you think you're interior is not all fancy. A CJ has a simple interior. Sitting in a JK is like sitting in any run of the mill modern SUV.
And comfort? Gay.
No, you're wrong. Drive your Jeep like I drive mine. 25k miles in 4 months. So yes, comfort is a BIG deal. And BS. JK's look nothing like a modern SUV. Oh yea, the 2011+ maybe but not my 2010. Even the 2011 looks great.
Are you one of those guys that can't handle new things? Still using a 300MHz Intel P2? Haven't figured out that cell phones exist? Come on dude, get with reality. There's nothing wrong with JK's. I love all Jeeps, but as much as I drive there's no way I could get a older Jeep and get thrown around. This is my DD, and I need something usable in real life. I've had Jeep's for 10 years now, and the JK is my favorite. Why? The small amount of comfort, the simpleness of popping apart the plastic pieces, easily replacing it.
Plus who cares? JK's look great lifted and stock, and they are amazing off road. TJ's have big ugly steering wheels that were stolen from a Grand Cherokee.
I don't know about TJs but YJs came in 2WD.
Anyways, the TJ might be inadequate compared the your JK but you've already modified the JK. Have you also taken into consideration the cost of the JK compared the the TJ?
But you need to look at: warranty, the fact that it's a new vehicle, better gas/engine (sometimes lol). And TJ's weren't always cheap, hell a 2006 could cost up to 16~17k! In the end, another 5 years when the "refresh" is out you will probably be able to pick up a JK for pretty cheap so the point would be invalidated
I don't want your d**n lemons! What the hell are these?! Demand to see life's manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am? I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down! WITH THE LEMONS! I'm gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that BURNS YOUR HOUSE DOWN!
Mango Tango 2010 JK Wrangler Rubicon
Silver 2000 TJ Wrangler Sport
The 2008 Jeep Wrangler is not so much an SUV as it is an experience. It's slow and loud, handles poorly, has crummy interior materials and features doors that provide virtually no crash protection. But when it comes to off-road performance, the Wrangler is simply the best choice available.
