Never owned a jeep. Well a real one. I've been driving my wifes Commander around lately.
I'm looking for a Decent YJ 2.5L or 4.0 5 speed is a must.
I have had full size wheelers before and got tired of snapping axles and whatnot trying to keep up with by buddy's CJ5.
With the experience I have from that I know gears and tires do more for performance than anything else.
I live in Oregon about 40 miles south of portland smack in the middle of the valley.
So in other words, Hello my name is Michael and the offroad bug bit me again.
