|YJ325i||I fix modern cars for a living, I chose my 95YJ because of its simplicity. No ABS, no Airbags, no door wiring, no dome light or door/trunk switches. I know this is in the CJ area, but I totally understand this thread. However I do enjoy the basic multi port fuel injection over a carb. any day.|

|jrussblues||I have a 78 cj7 with a ford Carb, GM ignition, a ford transmission, a fsj motor and a tub from an 85. These things are like lego's for adults. And yep, about 5 wrenches and 3 torx bolts on the whole thing.|

Sorry, I meant to end this differently: This has just been one of many reasons I love the older jeeps. I was curious what makes others love having theirs.

Why I love my CJ
Recently picked up a 48 cj2a, but then had to go out of town. When I got back, it wasn't turning over. Not having worked on this jeep yet, I still managed to rewire the ignition side and disassemble/reassemble the fuel system, in the dark in a few hours. I'm not a mechanic by any stretch of the imagination and been 10 years since I had to keep an old car running. I love how easy it is to work on, and can't imagine being able to do that with any new car.
