I had CJs many years ago. I would get the JK. It drives better on the highway, and is fuel injected. Always hated stalling on the steep hills in a carbereted engine.
And much prefer the coil suspension.

|rics1997||Being the JK section, I think you will mainly get the JK praise. Most of us in the forum love our JK's. The thing about a JK is it can go from the trail to the road and is fun to ride on both.|

|JDsDream||Just wondering why you aren't considering a TJ or another YJ as well. It seems you are looking for either one extreme or the other.|

|KooL||Get out and drive one!! That's the only way you'll know how it feels. JKs are much more comfortable to drive, but they're every bit a Jeep!|

Kudo's to you for helping your son and selling your Jeep to help him out and it shows what is more important in life. You should get a lot of answers to your question but here's mine.
I bought a 2008 Sahara 4dr auto new and then later bought a 98TJ auto because some of the roads where we trail are early mining roads and there was no way to turn the 4dr around on some of the roads. Both Jeeps are coil springs and on a trip I'd rather drive the 4-dr because it's newer and rides smoother. However I enjoy driving either one of them the same (except for a long haul).
Good luck on your decision.

Sold my YJ - considering a JK or CJ
Sold my YJ a few days ago so my son could get his dream ram... He has medical issues so I do what I can for him, but I gotta say I miss my YJ more than anything I have owned. And the idea of getting a CJ or JK has come up for "reliability" but I just loved my YJ and it's metal bolted body.. Anyone have any opinion on the CJ or JK in comparison? I mean I know a newer Jeep would be more reliable and I prob need that but is it as "Jeepy" feeling? Or am I going to feel like I am driving a chrysler.. My YJ had 33's and a 2.5" lift. Going over any small bump in the road was ..interesting.. It was the most wonderful thing I have owned car or otherwise ever...
