Jk's have a 3.8. The liberty GC and commander had the 3.7. The 3.8 is actually a very comparable quality of engine as a 4.0. People easily get to 200,000 miles in them plus they are more efficient and slightly more powerful. I like the 07 a little better due to its better road manners and more ground clearance stock

Jaybo Thanks for the feedback! The hunt is on!

Wamooney Older the better cheaper to buy, simple machines, can be fixed by anyone. american made and well built, i love my 89
01-24-2012 06:14 PM
JCROSS I love my 2004! Anywhere in the 00-06 range is my vote. But yeah they are all fun
01-24-2012 05:41 PM
jjw821 I like the 1997-2006 jeep I like the looks and and the way it's built!!!!

G-Pur I'm partial to the TJ with the straight six. The engine is unbeatable, and it's built like a tank. The TJ is easy to work on, mechanically, as it is all old-tech. Usually if something breaks, you can fix it yourself and find really inexpensive parts to do the job right.

In reality, what Jeep you want to get fully depends on what you plan on doing with it. You're not going to go wrong with either the TJ or the JK. Both are extraordinarily capable off road machines that will get you through the worst weather that New England has to through at you.

If you want to upgrade to bigger tires and a lift, look into a 2003-05 Rubicon, since they come stock with the stronger Dana44 axles and a locker. It would save you money in the long run.

Whatever you decide to do, please promise me one thing... no mudflaps.

2007 is the new model, the JK. It has a new engine, a little bigger, has a 4 door option and all around has better road manners. Plus you can fit bigger tires under it with less lift. 35" tires can go under a stock JK, but not confortably. You can really only do 33" stock whereas only 31" tires can go under a '04-'06 (TJ)

My vote is 2007
