How do you CJ guys survive?

Over in the YJ section there is always an ongoing battle of;
Trac bar removal?
Sway Bar removal?
And given you guys are taller and shorter wheel base...
However do you get on a highway without combusting into flames?

Sorry for this useless topic just wanting to have some fun.

I've seen that and just haven't put my .02$ in because it's all stupid. I had a CJ first and they're both fine with neither..

A track bar is an adjustable point for the loose knutt behind the steering wheel. Yes I did.

probably real close mpg with the 6..one of my favorite jeeps was a 78 cj7 with a 350 LT1 corvette engine..had a 79 cj7 with the 304 that was badass too..neither of them got great mileage but back then gas wasn't high..had a 80 cj7 with the 6 that got good mileage

Ya gotta ignore some things. But, do remember that some CJ's like mine only go 50mph. Maybe at 80mph the YJ's might need a bit more stability?

The ones I bite my tongue on the most...

1. Stock roll bars are dangerous! (I don't have one)

2. Side air bags should be standard. (I don't have seat belts)

3. I like Jeep JK new cup holder lights. <bites tongue>

I must add I only drive my cj2a on weekends and don't rock climb with it. But, it is funny sometimes.

I would love to build an old cj like that.

Might start trolling your section for info.

Anyone got opinions on the sheet metal kits in the back of JP mags?

I had a 95 YJ for 8 years, was fine. Have a CJ7 for 4 months and enjoy the CJ so much more. Pain in the ass sometimes but love it. Plus it looks cooler...

I drove a 78 CJ5 for several years 304 3speed manual. That thing would pop a wheelie bone stock, but 60mph down the highway was pushing it. A jeep with a V8 just feels right, currently own a JK my 5th jeep and I'm telling that 304 mated to the 3speed was pure magic.
