I'm kinda in the middle on it at this point. I will wait to see it in person before making a final decision, but I have no plans for a new car anytime soon so it doesn't affect me either way. As far as the TJ being alot different from a YJ I just don't see it. I had a 1990 YJ, and the only negative thought I had toward the TJ was the dash. Now I have a TJ and like the dash more than the YJ. Other than that and the round headlights my TJ seems exactly the same as my YJ (both had/have 4.0). I've only had the TJ for a month so maybe I'm missing something.

Jeep is walking a fine line recently. They make a rig for people to take off road and then price it as a luxury car. Most of their loyal base is going to start buying used Jeeps that yuppies get tired of after a year of bouncing around malls.

There is a little metal tag under the front bumper of my Unlimited (passenger side, just in front of the radiator) that says "LJ." Maybe that is where it came from.

It looks a lot nicer in person. I think you guys will like it up close. Believe me, I saw one at the NY autoshow last friday. I thought it, including the green color, was pretty damn nice. However, there wasn't any information on the MSRP or anything yet though.

Some of my JK pictures from the NY auto show. Like the people above said, it really doesn't look all that bad in person, I kinda like it.

I would say so, your TJ has COIL springs and your YJ has/had LEAF springs. Even if you don't think there is a difference, there is. Also a stock TJ is a little higher than a YJ. On top of that the 4.0 was upgraded and by the end of its run it was putting out more power and got rid of the distibutor which is nice for deep crossings. Fact of the matter is the TJ is light years aways from the YJ in comfort and capability. The KJ might be that much better than a TJ but I haven't seen it yet. It still has coils and pretty much the same suspension set up, kind of what the YJ was to the CJ.

WHOA WHOA WHOA...

is that a typo, or are you seriously saying that the LIBERTY is better than the current WRANGLER

I flopped and broke my piece

If it won't budge, get a bigger hammer, if it breaks in the process it needed to be fixed anyway.

Typo, but it serves a point, I meant JK but I think you knew that. If Jeep chose to name it so closely to the kj then maybe its a puss wagon too.

The only Jeep that I would ever trade my TJ on would be the Gladiator. I love it.

This thing is just too damn long as far as wheelbase. You'd need at least 6" of lift and some 35s to get a close result, and with some 35s it'd look like the YJ, because of not enough space in the rear wheel wells.

the new wrangler is IMHO better from the frame down and worse from the frame up.
by frame down i mean frame, suspension, driveshafts, elec diso swaybar, bigger tires, etc.,

but im still warmin up to the new body.
