I want to see some more porn on the SWB. I like the TJ's looks the best out of all jeeps. It's refined/modern enough for me but still looks what I think of a jeep looking like. I liked the YJs too, from most angles they look the same as TJs. Square headlights gives them their personality.

Something that bugs me is that the JK is supposed to have improved car like ride on street. I don't want to feel like I"m sitting in a sedan or sitting in my living room in a jeep. I want a "ride".

Eh. I was very excited about the JK when the first pics came out, because it would be the closest thing to a new XJ... but when I went to the Atlanta auto show and saw it in person, I just wasn't excited. I don't know why, but the TJ Rubi Unlimited they had next to it was just a lot more appealing... so I bought one 2 months later . The main thing for me is still uncertainty about the drivetrain, followed by how much the side profile resembles a Honda Element... Down the road when this one is paid off, I could see getting a JK Unlimited with a V8 or diesel (or a Gladiator ) and relegating the TJ to trail duty, but I simply can't get excited about it in its current state.

The front fenders flares look stupid. There is just way to much plastic.
The front looks allot like, they took a Liberty flattened it out.

Good shots, have a good time at Camp Jeep. My son and I went last year and had a great time. This year we went to the Penn's Woods Jamboree instead of Camp Jeep and also had a great time. Next year its going to be a hard decission.

Oh yea, I like the new Wrangler 4 dr

Just a slightly modded XJ with a little lift, some armor, four mud tires and a few decals, so far.

PM is screwed up again...


Haha.. crazy. Where are you parked in the parking lot? I am on the way end (not the side of the main entrance)... I have my top up with the windows out. You can probably look out the window and see it. What room are you in? I won't come knocking..haha

Actually, I think you are parked next to me.... are you in between 2 silver Jeeps?

Oh yea, is there anything we should visit/do during our stay here?

REAL Jeeps don't have square headlights... then again they also don't look like baby hummers. Long live the TJ.

I'm at Camp Jeep too.. I actually like the look of the 2 door JK, especially the Rubicon. I drove one too, and it didn't feel noticeably larger than my TJ on the trail.
