I've been lurking here now for over a month and now it's time!
It's been 18 years since I sold my '88 YJ and began driving "sensible" daily drivers. Now the nest is empty, I'm retired and my better half suggested jokingly to get a new Jeep.
Well I'll be picking up my Gecko JK Sport this Sat. and can't wait. Although I probably will not miss some of the old YJ characteristics like poor heat in winter, hitting bumps in pavement at -10 deg. below and becoming airborne.
For all you youngsters out there: These new fangled JK's are positively luxurious compared to the CJ's & YJ's I was used to.
