Need Help!

Hi everyone! First things first... I'm only 15 about to get my license and I am going to get a TJ sometime this year (I can get decent deals in my area). But I have some important questions. How does a jeep feel? (Steering feel). My father has a 2009 f150 and when I drive it it feels huge and the steering wheel doesn't feel like its connected to anything (it feels numb I guess) and I don't like that

First off, welcome to the forum

Secondly, the only way to know is to go test drive one. I'll guarantee one thing: it won't feel like your dad's truck.

If your lift is put on right, it should drive the same or better. Head on over to the tj model tech section and ask some of those guys and gals.

Enjoy!

Welcome, the short wheel base gives it a lot more maneuverability than others. I love my TJ....

Welcome to the forum!!! You won't get that feeling in a TJ. They are very light and nimble it will surprise you.
