    The KJ is the liberty......

    The wrangler has been redesigned, but it aint a KJ. O yeh, something Im wondering, why did they come out with the 3.8 V6 making like 15hp less than the 3.7 that has been in the libertys since 02?

    if jk is short for joke, then you would be correct.

    116" wheel base 4 doors, soild axles<- perfect, all the benefits of a h3 but with a removable top frikin sweet if you ask me. I think its the ultimate 4x4 to have these days, if your the kind of person who wipes their butt with $100 bills!!!!:haha:

    no im not talking about the ****y 4dr they redid the tj. My dad went to a dealership the other day to kill time and brought home a pamplet from them it then new 2dr wrangler design looks pretty neat. Yeah they call the new 4dr the unlimited and i think the dealership said they stoped making the extend version of the 2dr

    Yah, no that one sucks just another tiny ol short wheel base jeep. I always laugh when I get stuck behind a group of jeeps doing wheel stands and almost going endover on a tough section of trail. I just blip a little throttle and walk right up it.

    The jeep guys look at me and say "lucky you didn't break an axle", I just laugh and say " in case you didn't notice thats a dana 60 under the front there you better recongnize!!!":haha:

    I own a 98 tj as well so I reserve the right to talk smack!!!

    basicaly if you want a jeep save some $$ and get an unlimited, I talked to a freind who just bought a new JK and while driving on the freeway all the electrical just cut out and killed the engine. Scary thought if you ask me!!
