Says the plastic jeep loving crowd! So the jks dislike the yjs as much as the rest of the jeep world dislikes the jks, wow complex! Just kidding, why can't everyone get allong? The jeep brotherhood is a great thing, why leave someone out due to being a plastic jeep yuppie or square headlight poor boy?

I think it comes down to the fact that later model wranglers from yj and later are easy enough that any Nancy can drive one. That leaves room for the riff-raff. If you see someone driving a cj5, you can bet they are Jeep people. Just an observation as I know there are a fair share of Wrangler owners of all years that are real "Jeep people" and a few guys that drive cjs because they "look neat". Haha

My 72 CJ5 is always getting looks, and guys that say they would love to drive it and own one...so I let one of my buddies drive it. 304 V8, no power steering, no front disc brakes (drums with no power booster, just hydraulic)...he changed his mind after he found how "hard" it is to drive compared to newer cjs and wranglers...he can't believe that I can drive it at 60 mph and love it...but I do...

Tarby, so right you are. My 75 is tough and cantankerous to drive, but I wouldn't have it any other way. My last girlfriends dad drove mine a month or so ago when I finished it and while he liked it, he had no interest in owning one. They are definitely not for everyone. I did convert mine to ps though so I dont break a finger driving it off road though. Probably the best mod Ive made yet, although manual works pretty good with a suicide knob.

Cantakerous.....perfect word to describe the experience of driving an early cj5. My cj was a 73 with a 304, no ps or pb. It was definitely a handful. The day I got it I had to travel on rt 78 in NJ. The speedo needle was broken, tractor trailers were blasting by me at 80 mph, and the glasspack mufflers were singing a sweet tune. My brother who was following me said we were doing 70-75 the whole trip. Never again did I go that fast in that Jeep. Off road it was much easier to handle. I loved that Jeep. Love my yj and jk too!

I've been dring Jeeps for 26 years I've had 7 of them .Started with a 85 CJ7 lost it in a fire ,picked up a 87 YJ fun but still liked the CJ's, picked up a 71 CJ5 ran that off road a few years, back to my first love a CJ7 the last one a 86 still have it.I've picked up a 88 YJ to drive while I rebuild the CJ7
then sold the YJ and picked up a 01 TJ ran that a few years then I had to have a 05 Rubicon. still got the 05 and 86 like them both but like to CJ7 for offroad. There is something about the CJ could be the body lines I don't know.

Nice collection RubiconRich! I think it is the lack of plastic and no frills styling. I think that CJ styling appeals to my inner cave man. Haha

I like em all but if I could build one it would be a YJ tub with a CJ tail gait and TJ head lights and suspension. There are also thing I hate about some of them. Lack of gauges in TJ and JK and the interior is like a car (yuk). I hate square head lights even though my jeep is a YJ. My favorite is a scambler. There is a red one rollin on 35s that looks like a jeep fit for Jesus I see around town every once in a while, its beautiful. Big wave for all u boys!
