I tell you, I never been in a CJ but my dad has a 2000 TJ. I drove his to work a few times, and it rides pretty decent and didn't bother me. But the fun factor of the JK was way more then the TJ (not sure why, I love both of them though).

I want to get a old CJ eventually, and build it to be a off-road hardcore machine that doesn't matter if it gets rain or snowed in.

As for a daily driver though, the JK is amazing. I have this thing where I always have to drive. I've driven to northern PA (500 miles one way) and to South Carolina (850 miles one way) and several other trips.. it's VERY comfortable, compared to something like the TJ would be (although my dad's isn't uncomfy).

In reality, I love having a six-disc CD player. I love my 368-watt sound system. I can HEAR my music when the doors are off. It's a great beast, and off road it's simply amazing. In stock form, the off road (my last Jeep was a X '07 with 3.21 gears) driving in these things are amazing. My X had stock tires and I never had issues on the beach. In the Rubicon, it digs more (4.10 gears) but that is to be expected. I'd say it's about 45% better then my other Jeep.

12 inches of snow? Felt like I was driving on a normal summer day. They plowed my road and I drove through snow that was over my bumper with no problem in 4 hi.

It's a great vehicle, if you're ready to upgrade that TJ I highly recommend it. People are so annoyed with my Jeep addiction (at work, family, etc), but I freaking love Jeeps. I've never in my life sat in a jeep and didn't say "I love Jeeps"

It's a Jeep Thing

The 2008 Jeep Wrangler is not so much an SUV as it is an experience. It's slow and loud, handles poorly, has crummy interior materials and features doors that provide virtually no crash protection. But when it comes to off-road performance, the Wrangler is simply the best choice available.

I posted here once before and I don't know what happen to my picture.

I am sure I deleted it some how.

Here is an updated picture. I know she looks clean... if someone wants to go with me to get her dirty I am all in.

They are Pro Comp 7033 17" on 35" Irok ND (315/70R17). So far I've been impressed with both. The tires have a little drone to them, but nothing that is annoying while driving.

I also purchased these while I was home on R&R from my deployment a few months back. Now, I've been home for a month and I am ready to hit the trails. Stay safe and good luck.
