      I 'll keep my '78 CJ 304 Edelbrock with 3 speed manual full power with a/c and use my smart phone as a trail computer. When I bought it in late '77 it cost $6,500. Did a frame off restore with many steering upgrades and modifications including the "Z" spring shackles that cure the "video game hwy steering" that CJ's have been known for.

      I also have a 1960 Willys Utility Wagon with a '74 Cherokee Quadratrac drive train that I would gladly have a tug of war with a new JK.

      I am sorry. I have a 93 YJ with the 2.5 and the 5 speed manual. Has the lunch box lockers and 33 inch tires. Yes it is a dog on the highway. No power locks or power anything else. Nothing to break when dust or moisture finds its way in. It is a tank when it comes to off road. The biggest thing is it is a cheap Jeep. I don't cry when I apply a new "pin stripe" or add new curves to the body. I believe that I would have a hard time doing that to a 40k Jeep. It is time for a new motor. This time it will have a stroker motor in it.

      BTW, that extra 1k lbs is a big deal when trying to ride on top of the snow. I had battery problems and had to call a wrecker. 450 Ford diesel. Snows on all six tires. He had to chain up 4 of the 6 tires and still had problems. He asked me, before reaching the Jeep, if I had chained up. I told him NOPE. In deep snow or sand, weight does matter.

      A $5000 XJ would of been a better fight. I bet the XJ would be just as good as the JK

      Agreed. An XJ with lunchbox lockers and a cheap lift and walmart tires would have been a much better fight to either of those

      TJ Is the last “Wrangler” ever built. JK stands for Just kidding as wrangler takes the turn to be closer to your typical “comfort” suv. Guess they wanted to appeal more towards the skinny jean type of person. About as exciting to drive as a Ford Edge.

      I've had 5 Wranglers. My current '05 Rubicon LJ is by far my favorite. I hated my 4dr JK. It has too much plastic and electronics. If you put my $13k Jeep up against that $40 JK it would win every time. Unless you're all about the creature comforts. In that case get in your car and hit the highway!

      Where are the CJ people? Pre-Chrylser all the way. When the motor goes belly up, swap in a v8 or a diesel! Nothing beats that cool factor.

      I owned an old FJ-40 '67 or '68 can't remember. It had a 3.6L six cylinder and everything about the engine was identical to the Chevy 292 six cylinder except the hardware was all metric rather than SAE. I dressed up the engine with a slotted chrome valve cover sold for a Chevy six and it bolted right up and replaced the starter with a Chevy one at about $45 compared to the near $150 for a Toy one...all I had to do was drill out the Chevy bolt holes to just a slightly larger size to bolt it up using the Toy bolts. Wish in some ways I had kept that one.

      Here in the SW people want almost as much money for a TJ as a roughly equivalent '10 - '13-ish JK, and in some cases as much or even more.

      The JK is a street car/daily driver, that also works offroad. Jeep is selling twice as many JKs/yr than even the hottest years of TJ, which itself sold way better than YJs. The main enemy is weight and size(esp. Unltd). If you throw enough money at a JK, it will perform like a mildly modified TJ. If you just need an offroad toy, get a TJ, which wheels well, lightly modified. All there's needs is an Explorer axle in the back with a locker! Of course, losing the AT and 4:1 T/C helps too.

      I'm surprised to hear the JK has more aftermarket support than the TJ. IMO the TJ was the sexiest Wrangler ever made.
