Hello, new Jeeper here been out on a couple trails near Apache Junction, AZ.
Definitely fun with small group from my AJ Resort. I am a winter visitor Oct-Apr. Bought my 01 from a neighbor who purchased a 2011 Wrangler Unlimited. He commented that he bought a new 11 rather than a new 12 because he claimed he knows a couple people in Colorado that bought 12's and had to have motors replaced in short time that (all aluminum motors) did not hold up. Is that a typical problem or a fluke?
I am also told that my 01 with 4.0 inline and auto trans & part time 4x4 is a great combination. I am pleased so far. (155,000) and runs great.
