|mrbigjeep||i drive mine daily and take it wheelin when i can...at least once a month...i wish it was more but it's better than nothing...but no mine doesn't have 42" iroks|

|bluvikng||The Rubicon gets driven daily.......about 75 miles a day. I know this site has grown tremendously since I joined, but as I said when I joined, I got infected with the wheeling bug, bad. I did not want to hurt the Rubi, with wheeling, as it is a DD. That is why I built the YJ. It is nothing but a off road mean machine. One that I don't have to worry about scratching, or denting, or any other issues that are associated with DD's. I wanted a Jeep that was durable, mean, and was not depended on for daily transport. I can't even legally drive it on the street. It has full hydraulic steering, and was not meant to be driven on the street.|

By the way, I would never try to prove you wrong, Jack. I can always take you for your word. I was just curious of the answer.
|08-04-2006 06:09 PM|
Mine looks more like Blu's and I drive it most everyday. Getting ready to step up to 37's and still will drive it everyday. I also wheel the hell out of it whenever I can too. Mine was not DD for awhile, but I've put it back in the game.
But I would say that non daily driven rigs on this particular forum are few and far between. I know of about 6 just off the top of my head and we have way more than just 6 members.
And my bad if Tilt was a standard option on YJ's. Didn't mean to make people scour the web looking to prove me wrong. I just know that a buddy of mine did have a 90YJ with the 4cyl and that bad boy didn't have tilt and always pissed me off trying to get into it.

|Wr@ngler00||Case and point. Thanks for your honesty.|
|08-04-2006 05:54 PM|
My Jeep only gets driven a couple days a month. I have a company truck for work and I work a lot of hours. I'm mostly working when I am on here. My company laptop is always with me on the job.
My Jeep is neglected. I haven't even put on 2000 miles in the past year and something months. Last time I changed the oil, it had only been driven 400 miles between changes.

|Wr@ngler00||If blu says he drives that red beast to work everyday he's full of horse piss!! What about you ameri??? You drive your YJ to work everyday? If so does it look like Blu's?|
|08-04-2006 05:31 PM|
ok, blu. is it true? I disagree with that statement myself. Not that it matters, but my opinion is that we have mostly dual-purpose rigs.
This gives me an idea for a poll that I am going to start. I'll post it up tonight or tomorrow. I think we had a poll on jeep usage before, but our membership has grown by leaps and bounds. It'll be interesting to see where it stands now.

|Wr@ngler00||Newer the better. Why get a YJ when you can get a TJ. Who cares about the stupid headlights or tilt steering, if you cant fit you cant fit! Most of the guys on this forum only take their jeeps out to play. AsK bluviking. If your like me and drive 45 min. to work, take it to the store, and to run around town you need a newer jeep. Bottom line get what you can afford, with the most options.|
|08-04-2006 02:38 PM|
ok, I'll bring it back to subject : get you that you can drive comfortably
|08-04-2006 02:09 PM|
|redsoxjeep1||Woah...can someone say run away thread?|
|08-03-2006 10:05 PM|
|bluvikng||The only difference that I have noticed is the seat sits higher than in the TJ. But my 89 has tilt steering, and is always as high as it will go. Even with lowered seats, my head still bangs the roll cage. Short legs, and long body........|
|08-03-2006 10:00 PM|
|amerijeep||I was checking around the net, and as fas as I can tell, tilt is standard in a YJ. I could be wrong though. It may have only been an option, but it seems to have been around as early as the 87 model.|
|08-03-2006 09:41 PM|
since we have deviated from the subject, I'll admit I'm still trying to come up with a gracful entrance/exit with the CJ, it's a tight squeeze (seat & stearing are fixed and people may have just been "smaller" 30 yrs ago)
|08-03-2006 06:58 PM|
|amerijeep||Yeah, I was wondering why he can't fit into yj. The steering tilts and also the seats are adjustabe.|
|08-03-2006 06:51 PM|
|mrbigjeep||lol...again? ...but i didn't know what he was talking about either|
|08-03-2006 05:56 PM|
Oh OK. My YJ has tilt. I didn't know it wasn't common. Must be like that A/C thing.

|bmanrkg3||i beg to differ, as i can fit into a tj as opposed to a yj, the steering and seat setup is completely different|
|08-02-2006 10:32 PM|
|mrbigjeep||your jeep looks like my buddies...minus the 42's and coilovers|
|08-02-2006 08:26 PM|
Don't change a thing on that YJ, blu. There's alot of awesome Jeeps on this site, but yours is my fave!
You definetly did NOT build a crappy Jeep.
|08-02-2006 08:18 PM|
|08-02-2006 08:07 PM|
Not more popular with me...
There's that head light junk again. Amazing!
If we're talkin' about lights, I think the running lights embedded in the TJ fenders is one of the worst features on a Jeep as far as superficial appearances go.
If someone rules out a vehicle because of the shape of a light, then they should keep their Honda to drive to Pottery Barn in.
|08-02-2006 07:25 PM|
|Skeezer||1997 & Up seem to be the most popular. Round headlights, newer body style, etc..... Good luck.|
|07-26-2006 04:11 PM|
|mrbigjeep||yeah...if you wheel a good bit then the 6 would be better...and yes the 6 would be better and 2000 or newer is good...or new as you can get without blowing the budget...but anything 2000 or newer is good and you should be able to find one in that year range for 11 grand or less...hope ya stick around and good luck on finding the jeep...you'll love it|
|07-26-2006 09:05 AM|
|redsoxjeep1||My budget is no higher than 11 grand. I plan on wheeling quite a bit so maybe a 6 is in order. So look for a 2000 or newer and probably better off with a 6 in the long run? Got it. Thanks guys for the info and help. I'll be around here quite a bit once a find the one I'm looking for.|
|07-25-2006 05:17 PM|
spend a few buck more and get a 4.0l vs the mighty 2.5. You will thank yourself later. As stated the 97-99 had issue with the manifold.. figure about 200 for the part. Heck check my 97 out its forsale..anyway.. the 2000's did come with a better 5spd but lots of people have gotten very good results with the ax15 and ax5. Certainly nothing like the 87 ba10. they also had the rail ignition system with is nicer.
I would get the newest one you can afford that has what you want on it.
|07-25-2006 04:49 PM|
|mrbigjeep||yeah 97-99 exhaust manifolds are prone to cracking...and if i was you i would go with a 2000 or newer tj because i think the 2000 and newer ones have the much better NV3550 over the weak AX5 tranny|
