These threads kill me, most wrangler guys won't wave to us XJ/WJ guys no matter what. I'll throw up a wave to any JEEP that's worthy, doesn't matter much if it's bumpers, winches, lifts, or just mud/dirt all over it. I waved to an older guy in a stock WJ the other day when I was in my XJ. Dude got a huge smile on his face like"I part if the Jeep Club". He waved back. Lol.
In reality, the only thing different betweenXJ's, MJ's, YJ's, TJ's and many others is bodies (frame vs Unibody) & wheelbases. Most of our drivetrain is the same D30, D35, 232j etc. don't know why some guys think the Wrangler is soo much better. My TJ was nice(in the summer) but sucked in the fall/winter. Top whistled, water always came in, etc.
