I just switched from a JKU to an LJ. I found the JKU was great for two kids in the back, not so nice for 3. I'm looking to get a Tahoe or something similar with a third row seat in a year or so.

I usually only take my 5 yo to school. In the LJ I had to teach him to buckle his own seatbelt since even being 6' 1", it's hard to reach the seatbelt buckle from the outside.

The new 6.7 fords seem to hold up nice. I had a fleet of the old international fords with 6 something's and 7 something liter engines and they always had issues. I switch to the kodiak gmc best power plant I have ever seen. Unfortunately they stopped selling the the truck domestically. We are talking heavy commercial use here. Like 60 to 85k miles per year at 75% gvw load regular and over 100% gvcw from time to time. The current truck in driving is a ford with a 6.7 and has 50k without a issue very rare for a ford truck this one is running at 100% gvw all day but doesn't see the use like my other place did. I don't own this one so just to say I'm not that nice to it. Good luck shopping that about all I can say about the big trucks. One thing I have notice in the current truck the doors no longer align perfectly. This is a indication of frame twist. Don't know if it's from the weight or the build of the bed.

It has nothing to do with the doors coming off, I've only taken mine off once. Its because the hinges are aluminum and I guess if they are not prepped correctly before painting they do some type of reaction and the paint bubbles.

I'm not sure the exact term, but it looks like they were rusting under the paint, that's what I thought it was. It wasn't until the paint chipped off that I could see they were not rusting and they were aluminum. The guy at the bodyshop sounded like he has seen a few cases of this and said it was due to not prepping the aluminum correctly.

It's covered under my 36-36,000 warranty so my dealer put a rush on getting the repair approved and getting the work done. I'm at 33,500 miles and it goes in Monday.

They all have the bubbles under the paint, but the passenger side, top hinge, on top under the mirrror has a big chunk of paint that just flaked off.

What's your plan for steering ? JCR makes a really nice over the knuckles cross over one ton high steer setup. ..my son has it on his Xj...it rides nice and high up out of harms way.

just some ideas for you.
