Wrngler lovers..bring me back to the other side

I bought by first jeep 3 years ago, it was a YJ, I loved it. But because of finicial reason, I was forced to ger rid of it. I have since been driving around an XJ, with a 4.5 inch lift, running 32s, which is a highly capable rig, but to me does not feel as sound as I did when I was in my YJ.

I want your opinions, (dont tell my XJ friends) but I am thinking of switching back. I am no longer in the financial crisis I once was, and miss this the open air driving and stronger frame. I also live in a location where driving with the top off 10 months a year is not uncommom.

XJ owners will argure why XJs are better off road, you guys will do the same. I just want your opinions on why I should switch back.

my XJ friends get jealous when they see the wranglers and CJs zipping around like big go karts. Like you said you can't beat top off, doors off and windshield down! Plus real trucks have frames not unibodies. You can't beat the aftermarket selection the wranglers have as well

I think pictures would entice him back to the Dark Wrangler side.

Okay, I know. I felt more capable in the wrangler.. Anything from my present lift work on the wrangler? Its a rough country 4.5 for a 93 XJ. ? I was thinking maybe the front coils would work, not sure, and have no clue about the leafs?
