Exactly, great additional information on the JK's that is something I had looked at also. So for my daughter, she may have to go with a "older JK" due to some added safety features.Food for thought. JKs have Electronic Stability Control, which basically saves the lives of teenagers everyday. TJs and older do not have this feature so fish tailing and loss of control are far more common. IMHO if you are putting a teenager behind the wheel of a TJ or earlier, then on a rainy day you need to take them to an open parking look and show them how control can be lost on turns and fast accelerations. A JK's ESC will shut down the wheel spin, but older jeeps tend to go 360 in the blink of an eye. It is important that your young driver knows what the envelope is and that they can't expect to take turns quickly. They should not discover this on their own. I got so damn lucky as a Teenager that I didn't die when I took a turn too sharp with a CJ. I lost control and the jeep ended up stopping right next to a cliff. A few feet over and I would have been done for.
