I can't say anything about the 4 door, but my 2 door has no sluggish feel to it in comparison to my aunts 94. :thumb:
Lol, I didn't think it was a bash thread, my comment was to help distinguish it from a suvs3nt3nc3d said:So I have to ask...is this considered a JK bashing thread if the "basher" owns both a TJ and a JK? lol
It depends on what you're doing on "the rocks."That was my thought. The wheelers that come where I live pretty much all run stretched wheelbase. Short wheelbase doesn't do as well on the rocks apparently.
It depends on what you're doing on "the rocks."
If you're playing in rock gardens, you need breakover, approach and departure angle. The longer Jeeps suffer there until you're on 40's.
If you're doing steep rock walls/ledges, the longer wheelbase excels there.
Optimum wheelbase is a function of what you do and what size tire you run. I'm at about 96" on 35's and love it in the big rocks and tight trails. I love steep climbs and have built my suspension to perform well in those situations, despite my slightly-shorter-than-ideal wheelbase. At 100", I'd be comfortable on 35's and steep climbs. But, it would take a lot more money and work to move the axle back 4" the way I want to do it.
