With the top on and the windows up this is one of the best factory stereos I've come across. Now when I take the doors and top off it sounds a little less than optimal, but darn good compared to a $60k convertible. Now if Chevy only made a 4 dr. SUV with solid axles...

I agree, if anything I wish my TJ had better sound. I can't be the only one who likes music while riding the trails?!

Don't make fun of us.



Another complaint about something that doesn't justify it. What's wrong with decent quality sound?

700watts stock? Man thats alot of sound. Being hearing impaired is kinda a bonus as i dont notice all the odd/annoying noises that come with owning a tj hehehe

As they say, turn a negative into a positive right?

I agree with you in regards to preference--in almost all situations, I prefer the TJ. But I'm not blind to some of the fantastic gear the JK comes with from the factory and I'm not ignorant enough to start a "JK vs TJ" argument with someone. They're both very similar (contrary to popular belief) and as long as they're similarly equipped, it's all about the driver.
Great, lets agree to disagree and call it a day.

Landon II Well I have a 05 lj And my dad has a 13 4 door jk. I paid 15k for mine he paid 38k for his. Not sure they should both be called a wrangler they are so different. For on road comfort the jk wins easy. But if I wanted on road comfort I wouldn't have bought a jeep.

fireguy WE have a 04 TJ Rubicon. It will be with us for a long time. It has never let us down on the trail and goes nearly everywhere. We am thinking of getting a 4 door 08 or 09 JK Rubicon. Will have the best of both worlds.
02-10-2013 10:51 PM
BLK00TJ I've wheeled with a bunch of JKUs and I'd never say were less capable. Yes, tight areas can give them trouble, but all in all both in stock form, a JK is just as capable as a stock TJ. In ten years time, we will be the ones wheeling rusted out buckets next to the JK replacements like the CJs do now. Let's just hope that those replacements are still made in the U.S.A.

As for 4 door JK's and soccer moms, you need to hit the trail more. A well built 4 door JK will romp all over your TJ.

ddjeeper I have a TJ but I don't think there is anything wrong with the 4door JKs. You can put a lift and tires on it and take the whole family and a dog with supplies on a wheeling/camping trip. It's kinda hard to do that with a TJ with the back seat in for the kids... I know plenty of people who wheel their 4 doors and their 2 doors. Not all jk owner use them for mall crawling... I see just as many stock tjs driving down the street and parked in mall parking lots that have never touched a dirt road as I have for JKs. If I had the money to spend I would buy a 4door in a heart beat even though I love my tj

I wouldn't be afraid to dent it either if I got everything on that rig for free like they do.

Full Spool My wife wants a 4 door jeep.. But when I remind her that her 4 door Taureg does 140mph, has air ride suspension, heated leather seats, and doesn't sound like a outhouse in a windstorm... she changes her tune.
02-10-2013 09:16 PM
jp2611 I have a TJ and a JK and like many on here. IMO no one Jeep does everything the best..JK is much better on the highway. But if you want to compare off road...it will depend on the type of terrain and wheeling. There are palces that a JK just won't fit doesn't matter how capable it is how big or little of a lift...sometimes in the woods it won't fit..and sometimes neither will the TJ!! than you need a side by side Razor or something like that.

Extreme point but my point is they each have their place IMO...but if I had to pick one vehicle only to drive till the end of time...yeah it would be my 9year old TJ

Patrick H Why is a 4 door for soccer mom's? When I put my wife and two teenage boys in the TJ for a day-long trail ride, the 4 door starts to look mighty appealing. And no, nobody here plays soccer.
