I have a friend (who owns 2 YJ's)who told me that he thinks YJ's are like the ginger kids of the Jeep family. Silly square headlights.
I have a red ginger YJ, so it has no soul.
Funny thing is though, I can go wheeling in some gnarly areas crawling the same boulders the TJ's that are built up are wheeling on, but my YJ gets driven home, instead of on a trailer like most (I use the word "most" loosley) TJ's when you wheel them hard.
Don't get me wrong. I like the smooth ride of the car suspension under the TJ.
But my leaf spring suspension isn't that rough riding and I can beat the living crap out of it and nothing breaks. Well, I did bend my tailpipe last time on John Bull in Big Bear. Three YJ's and three TJ's on that trip. None of the YJ's broke, but all three TJ's did. No YJ's got stuck, but one TJ had to be winched up and out.
Long story short, I parked my Jeep in the garage when I got home, haven't even washed it, and I'll be putting gas in it for another trip to Big Bear this weekend after doing nothing to it.
Oh, and I have almost no money in my suspension system. Been that way for many years.
But that car suspension in the TJ sure does ride smooth. Probably doesn't spill your Latte when you go over a speed bump like the YJ does.
Done stoking the fire and stirring the pot.
