I'm sure the moms in their JKs really don't care what someone in a '98 anything thinks about their $35,000 Jeep! :-D

Most of them think their hubbies got them a Hummer.

You know, as I recall, there was actually a slight price decrease, model for model in 2007 vs 2006. The JK is cheaper to manufacture with all the plastic components and the lack of character lines in the thinner sheet metal is also easier and cheaper to produce along with the 3.8 minivan engine was probably less unit cost than the I6. If a TJU (LJ) were to be built today it would cost closer to 40,000.

When I sold my JK, the first question I was asked, over and over was not what type of axles or lift or even color but they wanted to know if it had power windows and locks!

Don't worry, on Labor Day the JK owners will return the favor and thank those who don't have job and cant afford a new Jeep.

And be sure to let them know they can have our sloppy seconds when we are done with em :)

HAHA, Touche....

Now I'll just hop in my 1 engine, 280,000 mile Jeep and drive around a bit since you know....it's still reliable and awesome after 21 years.

With a tendency for jeep owners to be a little hard on their rides, and since they tend to have a little more fun then the average American driver...if something would go wrong I would rather have a $4,000 paper weight sitting in my drive way then a $40,000 one. I will give you one thing though, a car seat does fit a little better in a jk...so that's all you

I can understand the cost thing, that's why I will not wheel mine until it paid off and I ha e a different driver.

The car seat I wouldn't know about, I got rid of those a long time ago. I don't think they fit when you have no rear seat either.

I do like the JK better than the TJ because at my height and shoulder width, I fit in it better. The TJ fit a little better than the Samurai, but both still felt like they were built for 5 ' drivers.

Soccer moms are the best! :)

OP, not sure what your angle is on posting this thread regarding JK's in a TJ forum but you can expect some backlash from JK owners. Although I prefer the classic look of the 2dr Jeeps vs. the more comfortable spacious 4 drs, I still respect that it's still a Jeep. You should post this in the JK forum if you really want to wish the JK mom's a Happy Mother's Day.

As far as I'm concerned, other people driving jeeps "soccer moms" etc is a good thing. Keeps the company alive, and gives me nice used vehicles to buy a few years down the road.

JS1990 05-12-2014 11:43 AM

It was just supposed to spark some interest and have people click the thread. I don't really hate jk's. I guess fun posts aren't allowed

I think this was a great funny post. I am a JK owner (and a TJ owner!) and all that plastic crap molding all around the inside of the JK I call "soccer mom molding". I pulled all the soccer mom molding from around the windshield within two hours of owning the jeep.

Wheeling doesn't have to include roll-over prone 'oh sh!t' moments. Haha I wheel mine hard and have never worried about it being a complete loss at any point on the trail. 10k or 40k, I would rather get my money's worth than worry about keeping it shiny and clean. The more you damage on a jeep (I have gotten my fair share of dents) the more you realize that just about everything on a jeep has oem or aftermarket replacement readily available. Aaaaand if you can afford 40k for a brand new jeep, you should be able to afford to wheel it and repair it.

Good chuckle out of this post :-)

Noticed ya skipped the shoulder width. Ya may be tall but a bean pole. Do you have a nice V shape or are you like a 2x4? I like the width of the JK - my shoulder still brushes the door and is still over half of the armrest...

JS1990 05-13-2014 12:15 PM

Yeah I mean it is a wrangler...jk :P

You like that JK width until you do a narrow trail that your JK will have a hard time squeezing through while the rest of us dont even bat an eye...
oh wait, we already established JK's are for driving kids to soccer practice ;)
