I had a CJ5 about 15 years ago. Loved it. My only complaint (and I say this as a big guy) is that it's obviously made for someone who is 5 foot 5 and 120 pounds. I had trouble getting in and out of it and the big steering wheel rubbed on my gut all the time. Other than that, the CJ was a very capable machine and was a lot of fun to drive. Mine had the 304, so it could go anywhere without hesitation (including back to the gas station!)
