I think that applies to several of the people in this thread thats pretty much the JEEP to have in my opinion. well atleast if you want to stick with the 4.0 (I am a pretty big JKUR fan as well ) but as far as I think, the XJ is the best bet for budget/ camping. theyre Cheap to work on and I like the cargo room and metal roof for camping better than a wrangler, but I suppose an LJ probably has about the same amount of gear room.

Yep LJ Rubicon is the Jeep to have but I would even trade the XJ for a regular JKU base model of I didn't have today for it.

He's an angel dressed in oilskins; he's a saint in the "Sou'wester,"
He's a pluck as they come, or ever can;
He's a hero born and bred, but it hasn't swelled his head,
For he's just the U.S. Government's hired man.

If i ever took my doors off, i would definitely make a set of half doors. I dunno what it is but they look so right

What's the going rate for welding cable these days? Are you guys recycling the leads off your stick welders, or buying new when you do batt cable replacements and winch plug ins?

Yeah, I'm gonna do hood vents one of these days. I'm thinking of also doing an efan switch to help but I'm thinking hood vents should be enough. Which ones do you have?

That's great machine, much better starter than the mini street bikes a lot of people get and enough torque you can grow into it.
