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!
