I like the stiff ride, but sure wouldn't want to put 5 hours a day in the Jeep.

I found this while searching. So I am new to the Wangler world. I also currently own 12 WK2 Cherokee and we love it. But my 98 Sahara has a 4inch suspension lift with 33 inch tires. Oh man it has a rough ride. On bumpy roads its jumping everywhere. Is this normal in this car? Its my daily driver now

The ride on my 2013 Sahara is nearly amazing.

The rough ride on the Sport could be a couple of issues. Was it a Sport or a Sport S? I ask...because if it was a base sport, the smaller wheels may not have helped. Also, Sahara's and Rubi's have upgraded shocks.

11 hour drive to Phoenix and I was very comfortable and not at all sore or worn out when I got there. We just bought the 13 JKU did the mods 2.5 " RK lift with 34" Duratracs. We have drove everything from a Camry and Cadillac Deville as well as several 3/4 and 1 ton trucks over many years and we both were quite surprised at the manners and comfort of our newest Jeep on the trip.

Just drove 350 mile roundtrip and into a 20mph wind it sucked!! Driving with a tailwind was as good as I could ask for in a Jeep.
