I think everybody has an opinion and a point,but my question is "why do we keep filling the boards with this same IT"s NOT A REAL JEEP POST."Lets just start 50 more mpg threads and completely crash the board!
Anyone who drove a Willy deserves respect.When I restored my wifes I was scared to death driving it to the store,it wouldn't go,stop,turn you know none of the little things our jeeps spoil us with-lol.It was damn fun offroad however and it was worth towing it to the playgrounds.My father owned a CJ and said all these same things about the YJ,TJ,Commander,Liberty,Compass,JK etc..when you like something you defend it to the death.
I think options are good though,you say real jeeps don't have power windows and locks,navagation systems,18" wheels,electronic mumbo jumbo like disconnects and lockers, hard tops,automatics,subwoofers,blah,blah,blah.......Th en order a base JK soft top with no options ,do whatever you like to it and save a butt load of cash.If the loaded 4 door isn't a Jeep then don't buy it,nobody says you have to have these things they are just options for those that do.Get a no frills and call it a Jeep if you like but don't blame the company for going after a larger market.Also don't dog the people who like Jeeps (aka soccer moms,and commuters) just cause they look cool,this is the elitest attitude of "you have to be just like me our we hate you" that made me sell my Harley for a Honda.
Jeep was never going to make TJ's forever we all knew that,and they won't make JK's forver either.When the new model comes out we can all start this topic over and remember how the JK is far better than the new fake Jeep.
Well I'm going into the TJ forum to start a topic of how much better the JK is than the TJ,,,isn't that what the forums are for
