YJ, TJ, JK and somtimes CJ.....

Just curious for all the SWB jeep owners CJ or wrangler, Do you still own the same jeep you joined JF with?

Just curious for the fact i have seen some find out they have a turdy5 and sell it for a 44. Or they get the 4cyl and go 6cyl, Bump up to a rubicon etc?

I have stuck with mine and threw $$ into the 35 and at the time i did 44's were cheap and easy to find. If i want a longer WB ill cut and stretch it or 40's and ton's.
Not in love with my heap in the least, But its a wrangler and what i dont have i can buy and install alot cheaper.

I know some had old carb ones and a family and a JKU was needed. Maybe a dumb thread, But just curious and i know some have had theirs stole and had no choice. Just want to waste your time and see some numbers

That was the only jeep i considered selling mine for. But the bad IMO, 42rle, Coil packs and OPDA. Those were the drawbacks that kept my 99'. Yeah i could have fixed them, But i havnt had a payment in years and didnt want to start.

Not only the same Jeep but I traded it in and found it 3 years later on Craigslist.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

I started with a '95 YJ. Flat titled swapped it for a '96 ZJ because the frame on the YJ was a year or so away from needing a complete frame off redo. Still have the ZJ, although it's starting to rust and will likely be gone by year's end. In the meantime I picked up a clean '87 YJ and my wife is asking for a stock LJ.

Thanks for the replys. Seems many like and stuck with or just added too. Or it has been upgraded due to a longer WB, Need or wanted to have it oem.

Nothing wrong with any swap and or keep her till its a pile of rust. Im sure ill get to that point or will start accepting it lol and get a bigger rig or make room for more.

I just made the thread to show a few friends that most buy a jeep and keep it and or they keep with jeep once they have owned one. They hold value in some models, Some models have more aftermarket support, But ALL have a list of aftermarket support and are just as "jeepish" as the next one.

One thing i have found, Most people who are up in age go for a classic CJ or the newer JK. Left field and right, But they either want the ground breaker bare bones or newest with bells and whistles along with safety updates.

Again, Thanks for taking the time to drop a line and or vote. Even though the #'s are low, It still shows that jeep gets in the blood and there is no better, Dependable, Easy to fix and keep running 4x4 from the CJ to the JK, Only thing that changed was the jeep designs, Materials and safety features
