Just bought a TJ-pictures inside

Hello Fellow Jeepers,
I recently bought a 2001 Jeep TJ. What a difference between my YJ and this... here it is. 137 K miles on it as of now.

Hello there,
My TJ has 2.5-3.0 inch lift and bigger tires, the ride is a little bumpy. My YJ is all stock that I spent a lot of time painting and building the cosmetic parts. Here is my YJ....


My opinions are my personal experience and some might argue otherwise. please guys, no contest here....
#1
The fuel Injection really makes a difference: My YJ carbs (new one that I put in) has always had issues in winter. I'm talking about 40 degree winter in NorCal not zero/subzero, it still plays games at the signals and at takeoffs. Summer it runs just fine.
#2
I find it increasingly difficult to pass the CA smog every other year on my YJ. In 2008 it cost me about $1200 in repairs ( off course CA paid $500 for it-BTW they stopped this program) and I had to take to a "smog repair center" that was infested with low level scums.
#3
My wife finds TJ difficult to climb in and out. Mostly because of lift/tires etc
#4
The ergonomics on YJ is better that TJ: In TJ I feel I sit very much inside because of high dash board. It does not give that sunshine and free feeling...
#5
The center console in TJ is annoying and sometime impedes in the gear changes...mostly because the gears on TJ has large travel angle between shifts.
#6
No air bags on YJ:Hands down TJ, has two and passenger side can be turned off if needed.
#7
ABS: TJ has it and YJ does not.

I find both models easy to maintain, I always had door latch issues on the inside. Relatively easy fix with door panels out and some metal strings

TJ is all coil over shocks and YJ is all leaf.

Looks nice. I like the color and the black wheels are a good touch.
With the "Sport", did you get the dana 44 rear axle?

You have the older Bestop Supertop soft top. Hopefully you can stand it more than I could. I had mine off and sold within 48 hours of owning my second TJ. Terrible designed top.

As much as I love my YJ, I'm thinking of getting another TJ next year. The price has come way down on the 99-2000 models around here, many of them with very low miles. Since there's no snow/road salt here, a 70k creampuff is going to be rust free and around $6-8000 now. That's something I can handle.

Here's another helpful site identifying the rear differentials on jeeps.

you can email jeep for a complete build sheet for your new TJ

either that or there may be a tag on the diff

chances are it's 3.73 though
