Just lost my 02 TJ to Sandy and looking to replace with another TJ. I was advised by a buddy to join this forum for help. I've been reading tons of threads on other Wrangler topics and am hopeful you guys can help me replace my baby and cure my Wrangler withdrawal. Talk to me people!!

Thanks.

With wanting another TJ, prolly have better luck in the Tj section. The advice you would get here is, "Get a JK, a "real" Jeep". Don't crucify me, just heard it more than a few times.

Real sorry to hear about your loss. I have a friend it town that rolled his Jeep. The insurance company totaled it and wrote him a check to pay it off. He then turned around and bought it back for a fraction of the price. He took the remaining money and turned it into a major rock crawler. :thumb:

Just a thought.

Is there a "Jeep lost to Sandy" section?

I feel you - I lost my '00 Sahara. Just pulled the plates off today. There is a fine fuzz growing over every surface of the interior and the wheels, bumpers are all starting to bloom.

I am/was wrestling with the same TJ/JK question. Test drove my first JK- a '13 Sport 2 door on Saturday. Was an awesome ride, and happily very "jeepy". Of course the interior had less beach sand in it...but it was a fun ride. So what to do?

If the numbers work, I am aiming for a Sport S 2 Door, with the 3.73 gear, probably both tops.

If not...I'd happily be back in a TJ. Good luck!
