I actually like the new JK's more every time I see them (and in the Detroit area, that's quite a bit). I just wish the engines were more suited to them. They don't have enough hp/torque at the bottom of the RPM range, it's all been pushed up for the sake of gas mileage...

I like it. I think it is super nice. Although, I haven't driven one yet or even say in one. I like the looks and what I have read about it though.

I'll bet you could tweek the chip for better off road performance. BTW it reminds me of the old Jeepster Commando. It just has 4 doors. Something the Commando could have used. I don't get the 2WD version though. I guess if you never get off the pavement it's OK for a soccer mom or Mall Crawler. Griz

Yeah. I know what yall mean about not liking the appearance. I like the new Jeep, but never cared for the styling of the TJ.

Well, everyone has their opinion. There are just a couple things that I don't like about the TJ. Both have been corrected with the 2007.

The 2007 looks like it is going to be the toughest jeep right out of the box that has ever been built though.

I'm still in the market for a TJ though, but I am putting off a purchase until next year. I can't justify buying anything new these days. My Jeep is not my DD, so there is no point in a large payment for something I don't drive much. I got a little deniro kicked back to pay cash for something used.

I guess I should clarify, I am only referring to the two door model. I honestly haven't given the four door much thought.

The front is what I always thought looked bad on the TJ.

Never thought I'd like the four-door Wrangler, but I test-drove a Rescue Green X with manual yesterday and was impressed. Not sure if I'll buy, but I don't hate it.

Saw the new 2 door at Paragon today......I like it enough to consider one for a DD someday in the future (would keep the TJ for wheeling). Still want to take one for a little drive before giving the final verdict.

I am not a fan of the 4 door at all. I saw my first one on Friday at a stop light and I'm really glad I got my 06. I was worried that I made a mistake at first but I feel better now that I've seen it. And 2WD? i thought the point of having a Wrangler was the fact it was 4WD. I've been impressed with every thing Chrysler has done with Jeep to this point, but a 2WD not cool at all.

Here are a few pics I took Friday.

I've got to tell you; I love the look of the two door myself and Mama like the four door.

I have a YJ. The price was right! but my favorite body style is still the CJ. Altho I will most likely get a Rubicon as my next Jeep. Griz

I have always preferred the 2door. 4 door is great for a family though.

We liked the extra room the JKU offers over the 2-door for hauling our danger stuff or the folks out to dinner, and it has been outstanding at both.
I just didn't think there was enough room in the 2-door, and she agreed.
