I have a 92' YJ. Personally, I think a CJ is a better ORV because its older and you won't feel as bad when you beat the **** out of it. My YJ still looks pretty good, I am very careful when I take it off-roading so not to scratch and dent it up.

You have a contradiction in goals. Sorry but if you want to write a factual paper, you're not gonna be able to write your title. CJs might be the most loved or the best looking, but it is without question NOT the best ORV. We're talking stock components right? Sorry, but you're looking to write an infomercial, not a research paper.

As far as a research paper goes .. what is this paper for first?

The Jeep CJ may not be the best, but it has been proven to be the first design of a 4wheel drive vehicle that has stood against the test of time. So far, it is around 60 years of the same basic look, the longest running look of any vehicle in the history of the world.

The best off road vehicle ever could be argued as being a Quad, some would argue a Chevy pickup, some would say an Argo, some would describe the Hummer .. it all depends on what you plan to do with it. The Argo is all terrain, and its an amphibian .. a CJ is not (and neither is a YJ or TJ or .. ).

I personally would ask you to rethink your plan for writing this paper as you would have to have very strong arguments proving its the best against some very strong competition.

thanks yall for your input. the paper is for a homeschool high school writing class, and what can i say, it sucked as a topic/thesis. it was the only thing i could think of at the moment, considering that music and jeeps are really the only things i could write about and enjoy what im doing. sure, i could write about something i dont like, but... any how, thanks for yall's help. i will attemp to come up with something else. btw, as was the topic of this post, websites relating to the tech specs/history of jeeps would be helpful! thanks again! kg4pam

ps. topic sentence suggestions would be nice!

I think Naekid has a good direction to head. The basic design of the short wheelbase Jeep has stayed the same for the most part. Look at the very first Bantam and todays TJ and you can see they're blood relatives. Maybe the SWB Jeep as the most proven design or something. Don't get model specific and look at how long our Jeeps have been around. Here's an excellent resource. Start with this link and it's got links to pages with info and links that have more info and links. You'll be busy with this one. One of my favorite historical sites. http://www.film.queensu.ca/CJ3B/Poster.html

Good start, change the title to something like "cj most versatle" or something like that. as someone said, it stood the test of time. they carried familys to church, and dug hole for fence posts with on-board augers. this way, you dont offend anyone who owns another type of vehicle and are looking for fights. good luck!

Label it "what most people think of for Off-Road". Most would think of JEEP. I run a few different brands myself FORD Ranger and Explorer, Suzuki Samurai's, and bought my fiancee a 84 CJ. Out of all of them my Ranger is the best suited for tough off road trails. Im building a buggy though (another Samurai) so it will go where the others dont. But back to my point, you say off road, and most folks would probably say JEEP.
