First of all...I've been wheeling on the Rubicon since 1979 with my Uncle (1944 CJ) and Cousin (1941 CJ). At 20 years old in 1982, I bought an all stock 1947 CJ-2A. I still own it...but it's sadly not stock anymore.

Since 1982, I have only wheeled on Fordyce and Rubicon in my CJ-2A. It has the usual 80's upgrades, Buick odd-fire, 4 speed saginaw, 44/30 locked on 32's.

But in June, I decided after riding shotgun in Moab in a JK that I would buy one. I found a 2017 JKU Recon Edition that was a former grocery getter.

I lifted it (Yes BOLT ON) 3.5", put WFO Steering and 37's KMIII. That's about it, other cosmetic 1/2 doors.

The first time I wheeled it, I had paper plates on the Jeepers Jamboree. All my old CJ2A lines were OUT THE WINDOW! It was like I ran a brand new Rubicon Trail...none of my lines were the same.

Impressions? OMG...Wheeling a flatty...you need a kidney belt. The JK? SMOOOTH. The most terrifying part of the Rubicon in my CJ? The stair steps going up the Bowl, because mother nature decided the steps would be the IDENTICAL spacing as a Flat Fender wheelbase. The JK? Didn't even notice.

Even though I had 1/2 doors...Hell yes I used the AC sitting in traffic at Big Sluice...cause I could.

I've since wheeled the JK 3 times on the Rubicon..I'll be going again on Oct 4-6...it's amazingly awesome wheeler that turns hard work on my 2A into Sunday stroll.

And the best part of all? I WILL NEVER, have a Cold Start injector go out. #flipofftoyota
I've had a very similar experience with the difference between my SOA 1986 CJ7 and my 2006 LJ. The LJ is noticeably smoother and easier to drive on the same trails. After out first trip in the LJ my wife commented that she didn't feel like she'd just gone 10 rounds with Mike Tyson like she did in the CJ7. The AC is also a great addition.

My 88" WB Samurai will beat the ever loving shit out of you. It works well, but have you ever turtled a short wheel based rig on the spare tire, real easy to do with these little fuckers. When I get to work on my '86 buggy (Samurai) I want to stretch it out to around 100" or so

The pic is very deceptive, like how the snow conditions seem. There is plenty of room to stand on the window frame and piss while the rig is moving. I thought about climbing on the hood, but figured I would have slipped and died. It wasnít very well thought out, but it was successful.

Well it took 4 hours to get to that spot in the snow. Another 2 hours to get to the trail. The snow was a bit deeper than my hubs and crusty. It was slow going and it you stopped you got stuck. So it was low low and be patient. When you gotta pee you gotta pee.

The new JT truck is pretty awesome. Too bad I don't have the cash to buy one too.

@DirtyComanche you're right about the internal, Mopar model ID letters NOT ever actually being "LJ" tho' , the public may have wound-up calling them 'LJ's due to the model being referred to as "TJL" when it'd been initially designed/concept presented as a model variation that was to be used by the army in Egypt in 2003:


" The Wrangler Unlimited was put into production partly because Chrysler received over 300 comment cards from 2002 Camp Jeep participants who saw a concept (of the longer wheelbase TJ) , asking when it would be made and how much it would cost. It only took 18 months to bring the Unlimited to market, because it was based on a stretched-wheelbase Wrangler designed for Egypt. Jeep people had been considering a longer Wrangler; the 22 inch longer wheelbase TJL was delivered to the Egyptian military in 2003. Chrysler said that the American version was done swiftly, and at nearly 20% less cost than budgeted, thanks partly to durability testing already done for Egypt. 9,000 orders were placed before the Wrangler Unlimited’s debut."

https://www.allpar.com/model/jeep/wr...unlimited.html


& yes, @paragon the model had the 2.5l ,4 banger on a good number of them from it's first few years,iirc


JKUs are fine. you just need to cut about 2'-3' of frame off & tube the back half.
(edit: & ignore about 99.2% of everyone else that is driving one on the asphalt. Lotsa suburbia bought 4 door jks & it's a dreadful, confused buncha folk)

fwiw, you guys give the sheet metal on JK's too much credit; I can put my finger thru the toilet-paper thin covering of an unlimited jks quarter panel. wafer-thin,sir....

Truth. This JK belongs to one of my friends. Only another 18 months worth of payments to go!

I don't even know about the 4 door jeeps, or the JTs, I assume those are only measured in football fields.

I'm limited to sitting in the seat and making vroom vroom sounds in the shop right now. I have more of a problem with dust and rust than rockrash.
