Stock Jeeps or Naw?

So, I've clearly seen all the love for jacked up Jeeps and big tires. Personally, I'm not a fan in any way. So are there any more like me out there, wanting to keep the Jeep basically stock?

I prefer stock as well, and it suits all the needs I have.

X2... Unless it's for flex and off road performance stock is fully capable.

Your jeep, do it the way you want it. That has always been my thinking.

if you like stock keep it that way. the yj is getting close to a "classic". alot of the CJ owners are into this.
personally, I like atleast a small lift and a modified engine.

I like stock too, and I've replaced the rear leaf springs (soon to do the fronts) with stock height springs. No need to mess around and potentially need to modify the drivetrain. Plus, the Jeep is, as it is, way more capable than I'll need.

With my current jeep (1990 4.2 5 speed). When I had my 99 tj (2.5 5 speed) I wanted more power because i was stationed on oahu and i struggled getting up the hills. That's me personally.

Stock jeeps are the best. No doubt there.

If you need a jacked up monster, get a blazer or pickup. Jeeps are supposed to be small and light
Drive under tree branches and stuff.

I like this.

I've always like how the stock Jeep looked, and it's far more capable than I need. Really, I'm not looking for crazy off roading, but more of an overland vehicle that can conquer the tough spots well.

That's why I like it's stock size and specs, gets me rolling where I want to go, and if I see a path through the forest, I can go there too without worry.

My YJ sits on 31x10.5 tires, all I have is a small shackle lift to accommodate the slightly bigger tire size. It still looks very stock and that is about as big as I want it to go.

I like stock jeeps. I like jeeps that are built like they should of been from the factory even better. Government safety and economy regs put the hurt on the YJ. Small tires, artificially low stance and poor gearing to name a few. I don't care whether we are talking YJ's, XJ's or ZJ's, all can use an inch or two in the lift and tire department. I don't feel the need to build anything bigger though.
