    We have a few of these going rock crawling but most just see the deer woods trails that I run with my XJ. In Arkansas, the owners seem to think they are made of gold, we looked at a few YJ's before we found the XJ we ended up buying for less than 1/2 the cost of the cheepest YJ we looked at. TJ's seem to be only made of silver so I just might end up getting one of those for dd use when I get finished with da Lizard build. Yes the 4 corner leafs are rough riding but so were the CJ's. If I could find one I'd do like Steve says and go coil overs just so I would sill have my kidneys in the place they started out at the end of the day. Wifey has turned her eyes towards a TJ since we can't seem to locate a decient XJ for her. I personally have not met an older Jeep that I don't like.

    Around here anything that the top comes off of is made of gold and encrusted in diamonds.

    Gotta look for that uber rare 96 model

    Seriously tho, I like em. Give me the newest one that can be found with a AX15 and I'd drive it.

    haha @ 96 wrongler!

    I've had a few YJ's and I love them. But like others have pointed out, they can be expensive. You can find some pots of gold. I was sooo close to building a YJ, it was a 91 model and all I needed to get started was a d30 with 4.10's. Then I was going to get a 8.8 with 4.10s and then do a spring over. They do ride rough due to a couple of reasons. One short wheel base and leaves. Also, if they are still connected, swaybars, they flex about like a IFS. But they have the same drivetrain that XJ/TJ's have/had. They do have the axle disconnect on the d30s, but no big deal. The autos are really hard to find.

    But apparently i have an infatuation with square headlights on jeeps. I've never had a TJ and if they come down in price they would be a nice ride to have as well.

    Read some stuff in a coupla books a while back ...

    NannyStaters back in the day - were complaining about high c.o.g. vehicles .... so the YJ was a "politically correct" Jeep, built lower to address the alleged safety issues ... and given a revamp in looks so it was seen as an all "new" vehicle without the issues of past ones.

    Another book attributed its "girly jeep" branding to the lower suspension stance and better interior.

    Seems tho, according to the articles ... On average - The YJ was a vast improvement over previous models and good to mod.

    .... except maybe for those attrocious looking, big wheelarch flares, some of them had ..

    Books were ...

    Pppffffttttt...... Please! The only difference between a YJ and a XJ is few inches in length & width and a few extra turns in the muffler pipe. At least in my YJ "1991" They have the same engine and tranny, hell even same head lights.
    I think its so cute that how people that drive jeep mini vans hate on the YJ...

    ohhhh .... except for the bit about those ugly, bulbous, fibreglass wheelarch flares ..

    I like the look of the little square Renault headlights too .. and I normally refer to my jeep mini van - as an overpowered subaru .. ..
