Nice!
I own a lifted TJ. I sat in my first JL over the weekend at the sportsman show. My son jumped in the backseat, looked around and said "dad, this is not a Jeep".

Super nice on the inside, it was like sitting in a Tahoe or Yukon, would not want to trail ride in it.
Its amazing how far they have come, enjoy it!

Awesome

I can’t wait for my kids to be old enough to ride with the doors off. That’s when I’ll pull the trigger.

Nice! New? What was the price difference vs the JL?

Very nice! I've been getting the Jeep bug lately, but that'll have to be down the road sometime.

welcome to the club. I installed a teraflex 2" suspension lift on my dads '17 willys edition. simple install if you are somewhat mechanically inclined, although I feel like the rubis already have a lift on them factory (I don't know much about the JKs)

my current jeep is an 05 LJ rubicon that's far from stock

When you get a CJ or older get back to us. Until then you don’t have a real Jeep.

TJs are my favorite. Perfect mix of comfort and still old school style.

Every newer jeep/wrangler will out wheel a CJ all day everyday.

When they make it home and you get stuck, they can bring trailer back and pick up your "real" jeep....

Now all you need is 4 or 5 LED lightbars for when you get stuck!



Congrats! I'm a CJ guy, but I'll admit that the newer jeeps are very capable offroad. I don't know much about the newest models, but I'll admit a stock TJ is a better offroad vehicle than a stock CJ.

Welcome to the club. I have a 2013 Sport (manual transmission) that I bought a few years ago and have never had any problems. It was completely stock when I got it and I have enjoyed making it my own by customizing it. It is my new hobby and I almost want to sell it and start over with another one.

I'm on my 4th. ('99 TJ Sahara) They are projects/hobbies that will never be complete.

Funny, I've had a CJ and a TJ and like both, if I had the proper shop space I'd love to own another CJ, but I also like classic vehicles, which the CJ is now.

For me, right now, the TJ is a better choice for on road manners, off road ability, ease of wrenching on, cost, and the vast parts available.

I would not want to wheel much in a fully restored CJ, and would not want to wheel a new JL , I will however beat up my TJ and upgrade as crap breaks.

Today’s Jeeps are what Florida Georgia Line is to country music. It’s all flashy and pretty but it’s got no soul, no roots, no heritage.

Just another pretty boy “hey look at me” toy for millennial wusses
