Hmmm, true. Or, maybe they are just upset that their Jeep costed them 3x as more, and is 3x more unreliable and as un-fun than the TJ.

I'd drive a TJ over a Jk anyday, I just wish my 98 was the 4.0 lol I'm still a senior in highschool so I only had so much money saved up for a jeep. Ive been wanting a wrangler since my freshman year, but atleast I made it happen and wouldn't wanna drive anything else

I have a 98 with a 4.0L, I'm in college so I know the no budget feeling, but damn it feels good to drive my TJ

When you get crazy looks from other drivers, and looks of jealousy from JK drivers, because you drive around in the freezing cold Pennsylvania December rain at 11 at night with no doors or top on, because you love your jeep and it's just that much fun!

I love my Jeep too! But this time of year I think I love my hardtop, full doors, and heater just a bit more!

If you had half my heater you'd be warm

If you have to constantly move your toes around to avoid burning them because your wife wants the heat cranked.

You use this as a coat hanger hang up. Because you don't want your cloths to get mud on them before work/school

So true

Or when new tires means new lift, rims, steering components etc.

When your friends ask, "what's the easiest way to get ASE certified?" And your answer is "first you buy a jeep... then you put a lift on, then everything starts breaking cause you you get yourself into trouble and lastly repair everything!!!!"

I couldnt have said it better myself

everyone asks me when something breaks why not go to a mechanic and get it repaired, my answer is cause I'm my own mechanic and the money Im saving in labor costs go to buying better parts.

This is whats wrong with society today

I repair my friends vehicles or modify them along with my own. I cant see spending close to $1000 and a week of my time to get $100 worth of parts installed when I can do it myself in a couple of hours. Not to mention all the mechanics around my house are incompetent, Ive never had a repair or maintence last when someone else does it. I had a shop put diff fluid in my nv3550 and a DS shop rebuild my front DS just for it to go out 12k miles later cause they forgot to install the dust shield. Needless to say Im doing all my own work from now on, esp. since non of the shops would fix their mistake.

$3,000 in repairs that I didnt cause
