Why you hatin' ?

Why does everyone tend to hate/dislike the YJ? I know its different with its square headlights but I love it. I think it makes it unique. I mean after all a Jeeps a Jeep right? Why cant we just all get along?

Most people feel jealous when they see such a superior machine. Everyone knows that real Jeeps come with leaf springs and the YJ improved over the already very capable CJ.

I don't know if people actually hate YJs. I just know people all have different preferances. My friend used to have a YJ when I wa younger it was lots of fun. I now have a TJ and it is my first jeep and I have grown partial to TJs now. I think its what ever your 1st jeep is kinda grows on you. Plus the coils are nice in my opinion. They are all fun and have different things which make them great in their own way. Also if someone wanted to give me a free jeep I wouldn't turn any of them down.


Plus its fun to have friendly competition.

i prefer my yj's. i don't think there's much hate, and people that do hate are pretty stupid. they have other issues if you ask me so i dismiss it pretty easily.

i don't hate on tj's, and i don't on jk's anymore either, i was a little angry when they came out, but who cares.

i don't want a tj with air bags, and dome light switches that you have to pull fuses for, and carlike interiors, and stupid expensive upgrade parts. these are some of the reasons i love cj's and yj's.

i will probably end up with a tj for the wife though. i don't hate on what anyone else likes, its all preference.

Looks like a nice, rust free Jeep. Congrats!! What are the details on it? (4 or 6 cyl, manual or auto, miles, etc.....)

I don't hate YJ's or YJ drivers.

I just hate leaf springs and square headlights!

What I hate even more than that is a YJ that is more capable than my TJ! I've seen a couple of those too.

It's like the military rivalries.. Army, Navy, AF, Marines... It's just a tool to bring pride to a particular section of Jeep owners, but when it comes down to it, we're all Jeep owners that stick together against other outside (non-jeep) idiots..

I think that the square lights are cute. Reminds me of a jeep with glasses. Any jeep currently on the road is fine with me but to see one of the older models out there being well cared for is something special. It's like seeing my TJ's big brother No hate here. I even like JKs, it's just some of the JK drivers that I don't care for.
