Can your TJ do this?

If your looking for a nice smooth dd with little or no modification I would go tj. Their softer. If ride quality and fluff are not important. Or if you plan to modify extensively a yj can be had cheaper than a tj. And modifications are cheaper usually. There is more aftermarket support for tjs though. There are also exceptions to all these things but I would say those are the main differences for me. ( I have a yj by the way. )GL. And just remember there both jeeps. So either way, it's not a hummer.

|Squirrel 442||Nothing wrong with a YJ. With me it came down to what got me the most bang for my buck. I like them all. Good luck to you!|

|Gellato||TJ w/ 4.0L I6 & 6 speed manual. Look for years 03-06. Rubicons will run $10K - $20K for those years.|

+1 for the TJ
+1 for the 4.0L engine
The TJ will ride nicer, and has airbags - which I would prefer for my kids to have. TJ parts are more readily available than the YJ parts. TJs are somewhat easier to lift and build into a crawler if you ever want to go that route. Finally, the typical 16 year old girl would probably prefer the interior look of the TJ - it's more like a car/SUV inside. The AC units on the YJs were also not great, if that is a consideration for you in PA.

BTW, I own a YJ, and personally like the simplistic interior. I like no air bags - keeps it simple and easy to work on.

As simple minded as it may sound even if for no other reason TJ because of round head lights.I guess I started out with a CJ-7 in 1977 and have just gotten too use to them being round.As far as I-6 engines they are both OK. One of my sons has a 91 4 cyl which I just don't like as well.If he saves any money on the gas end he loses much more on the performance side of things.
Good luck regardless of choice.

YJ or TJ ??
My daughter turns 16 in a couple months and we bought her a 94 wrangler. I've been driving it once in a while and I'm really liking it and thinking about buying one for me.....
I'm looking at years 90 to 2000. I see 97 starts a new generation. Is there any advantages or disadvantages to one or the other gens??
I like the look of the round headlights of the 97+'s better but if there are no advantages I'm thinking maybe I should stick to the same gen that I already have and be able to "mix & match" parts.
Are the tops (hard & soft) all interchangeable?
Thanks for any info.
