Whats the difference .....

What's the difference between the JK and the TJ ? I know the YJ has leaf springs and square headlights, but confused between the JK and TJ......

I found a few comments on the web for you:

QUOTE:
* JK has electronic stability program
* JK has automatic sway bar disconnect switch (Rubi)
* JK has hill-start assist (auto transmission versions only)
* JK has 3.8L V6 with more Torque vs. 4.0L I6
END QUOTE

QUOTE:
I had my 99TJ for about 6 years when I decided to trade it for my 07 JK Rubicon this summer. Can't compare Rubi-to-Rubi, but the ride difference from TJ to JK is amazing. More so than the difference from my 91 YJ to the TJ.
END QUOTE

QUOTE:
Based on watching some local JKs, they really do work very well off road bone stock. The traction control gives them a huge advantage.
END QUOTE


Not sure if this is what you were looking for, but I hope it helps!

Best of Luck!

Cheers!

The biggest difference I know of is the engine change.

Their differences outweigh their similarities.

Yeah they both got round headlights, spring suspension, and the aerodynamics of a tool shed, but the JK is a completely redesigned platform than the TJ. Even the vehicle dimensions are different. At first glance to a non Jeeper they could be difficult to spot, but they're very different upon further inspection.
