Thanks for the post. I just saved the article for future reference. Things to think of if I lift the Jeep.

The biggest problem with the TJ is that they dont make it anymore.

I fear for the day when I finally have to put mine down and will only be left with buying a high milage TJ's or having to settle for a hunk of plastic, H2 wannabe JK.

I have considered buying another TJ and just letting it chill out til this one dies. Then drive that one.

If this turns into a JK bashing thread it will be closed. Just saying.

Nine months after buying my JK, I found what I really wanted at Fowler Buick in Pearl, MS this week. It is an 06 TJ Rubicon, with only 16K miles on it. Problem is they want $21,995 for it. It looks like it just rolled of the truck. My brother is on his second TJ and would not even consider a JK. I think that TJs will be around for many years.

I enjoy fixing my tj. As long as parts exist it can be fixed.

#1 problem: they didn't all come w/ stock D44s.
#2 problem: that stupid little rust spot they all get on the P/R tail corner.
