    Default What do you like about your Jeep?

    I'm at that point where it's time to start looking for another vehicle. My DD which I bought new has about 208k miles on it, and my wife's DD, also bought new, has 190K on it. We both like Jeeps, but the problem is that we like just about ALL of them.

    I've currently got a project CJ-7 that in all likelyhood will never get finished. So I'm wondering what it is about the different Jeeps that y'all like. Specifically, stock functionality before mods.

    What have you got, and what do you like and dislike about it as well as why.

    The ex had a commander v8.... comfortable, roomy, heated seats, power everything, sun roof in the front, moon roof in the rear. Got it used with less than 20k miles for around $15k. Drives great and plenty of power. 15-19mpg.

    I've got a TJ, everytime I fix one thing, something else breaks.

    i like the tj. it's better and more reliable than the cj and yj but cheaper to buy, own, and mod than the JK.

    Had an '06 Commander...not bad for a "Cherokee on steroids". Did ok as a tow vehicle, and just about the right size. (Moved up to a TUNDRA for towing)

    My CJ? What can I say...don't want to off-road in comfort, what fun is that?

    Me? Won't trade or sell mine....I know all it's quirks, etc.

    I have a YJ, TJ and LJ and I love them all. The LJ is great because of the extra room and still has the 4.0. I do love the Cherokees (XJs) also, getting harder to find with low miles but great vehicles. My sister has a Commander, got a chance to drive it a few months ago and was really impressed. No solid front axle but seemed to be a solid vehicle. Old Wagoneers are great too but hard to find in good shape for a decent price. JKs, not bad but too much plastic in the interior and WAY too much to modify.

    I have a TJ and a KJ... there is nothing that gives the 'feel' of the trail than the TJ, and no substitute for the 4.0L's low end torque. Driving along, I find myself spotting barriers along the way and thinking "I can get over that..."
    The KJ is a much more comfy drive, 19-21 mpg, nifty sunroof (not the same as taking the top off, but it helps), and makes a great commuter vehicel. Driving along, when I spot barriers at roadside, I find myself wondering if "I can get over that..."
    I have to say, the KJ is fun to drive on the road. If I'm going off-road, it's the TJ hands down.

    For me it's my CJ. It's the first Jeep I have ever had, though I've like Jeeps for as long as I can remember. It's easy to work on, most of the time, and it is durable. My wife's car has all of those creature comforts and I like the fact that my heep doesn't, who needs a/c when it's 115 outside anyway.
