My wife has always been unimpressed with my XJ. I recently showed her the Ursa Minor J30 roof tent for the 4-door JKs and suggested that would be the goal of my next vehicle. She was okay with that as she loves to camp.
Today we were at a local state park and on our way out there was JKU topless/doorless on 37s parked next to us. She got a proverbial stiffy over it, so that was all the okay I needed to begin researching my purchase.
After thinking newer would be better and winding up with a self-destructing cylinder head and weaker front axle in my 2000 XJ, this time I will pursue due diligence in researching a JK. I'm looking for suggestions on years or options that will give me the most reliability.
I'm aware of the t-case shifter linkage issues on the earlier models as I installed an aftermarket shifter linkage for a friend a few years back. I know lack of power was a complaint as well, but I don't know the specifics. Any tips you can share would be greatly appreciated!
