When I was younger I hated anything that was newer than a YJ. I can tell you that Jeep never died it just got more modern and changed with the times. Hell my 95 YJ I use to have didn't even have air bags and you needed a set of spurs to ride in it. At the time I loved it then moved onto a TJ that was a little better but, still lacked and wasn't that much more stable on the highway. Moved onto an LJ which was leaps and bounds above those two Jeeps combined in every way but, still had its limitations. Recently moved up to a 08 JK and can surely say its better than all three Jeeps I had put together times 10. Thats not to say older Jeeps aren't good because I still like them and for their time they were ahead of the game. One thing is for sure is we all get older and change some call it getting soft but, I call it getting smarter and just more experienced. Would it be cool to have an older Jeep? Sure but, would I trade my JKU for one? No way!

Thanks. I use to work with this one guy that had a CJ5 and though it was a good looking Jeep it wasn't a daily driver or a highway rig. He swore up and down that the carb was far superior to the multi port fuel injection or whatever Jeep calls it nowadays then went on to say the inline six is the only real Jeep engine and though for its time it most certainly was it was really starting to get dated around the late 80s especially when they had to choke it down more emission wise to make it 50 state legal. Tried telling him that technology goes forward not backwards and though it’s new don't mean its better but, more times than not it usually is or will be once the bugs are worked out. Heck fuel injection is pretty much getting to be a thing in the past with more and more manufactures going DI because they can burn a leaner mixture due to maximum atomization of air and fuel in the cylinder that don't get lost thru valves and such. Only problem is hotter combustion temps put more on engineers to design a spark plug that’s cool enough to keep from burning pistons but, hot enough not to foul especially in short trips where the engine might not reach operating temperature. On top of all this our fuels are pushing the limits with ethanol burning hotter as well. But, someone smarter than all us will get it right. Just my two.

I'd have to say what makes a Jeep is that one can drive it on and off-road equally well. With mine, I can drive it on narrow, muddy trails here in the midwest, or even over high mountain passes out west to cool camping spots, and then drive it back home. Like in the first two pictures below, this was on Drummond Island (Michigan U.P.) last month. I was commenting to my wife as we were heading home how happy I am with the heep that I can drive it on these kinds of trails and then afterwards drive 70 mph without a concern.





And then out west...

Wow.... I'm a new jeeper... or maybe I'm not, I don't even know If I am one anymore. Is mine a jeep? Is it a car? Is it a plane? This is such a silly conversation.

Whatever it is I bought... it says "Jeep" on the side, so I'm gonna believe that over all the other forum experts. Seriously though, one of the things I loved about joining the "jeep community" is the camaraderie that I've always seen from the jeep owners, please don't kill it right when I get in!

What makes a jeep a jeep is the driver. If the driver is a jeeper then he/she/it is in a jeep. If he/she/it is not a jeeper then they are simply in an automobile.

Ditto. If it says jeep, then it's a true jeep.... unless... it's a frankencar like one we used to have(part toyota camry, part something ford, part something chevy, all spliced together into some kind of freak autozombie thing.. LOOONG story there LOL)

If it comes from the factory with the word "JEEP" on it somewhere - then I figure it's a Jeep.

Real Jeeps are taken off road and not picture whored on the forum by members who clog up the forum with stupid posts and poser shots.

You're tired of Jeep brahs on a Jeep forum?

I like this mindset and consider myself a legit Jeeper!

Bought these all stock and then had my way with them. (Poser shot in chronological order)
