I hated mine, and my back thanks me everyday since I sold it.

I've owned 5 (1 YJ, 2 TJs and 2 JKs) and have had no issues. I'll be getting another one soon

I've got my eye on a 2016 Unlimited. So, so tempting.

Had a '76 CJ-7 with a 304 V8 three speed. Went thru everything and anything here in PA.

The good..... made wearing a seat belt an excellent idea. Very easy to back up trailers with the short wheelbase.

The bad.... Short wheelbase makes for a rough ride and dangerous towing.

I've driven pickups for 25 years and traded for a 16 Rubicon Unlimited last fall. I have had a ball doing mods and love it.

Had a '77 and a '78 CJ-5 with the 304-3 spd. To hear my wife tell the story, I needed to buy the second one to remember why I sold the first one. She loved them tho, when the weather was nice and the top was off.

Drove a '16 Unlimited to Eugene a few weeks ago (about 100 miles). Not car comfort, but they've come a long way from the primitive 70's version. I'd think hard about owning one again... in a few years. Wife is still getting over the new Charger R/T in my side of the garage.

That's exactly what I had, a CJ5 with the 3speed, 304. Went like stink, but you'd risk your life coming off an off ramp at speed, or going around a corner with any kind of speed. Made it through quite a few two wheels up change your underwear type situations. My g/f refused to ride in it after I jumped off a snowbank with it.........

like this one...

Heather O is coming over to hang out tomorrow. We'll take some pix of our Wranglers to post.

We have NO plans to pose a la Daisy Duke.

I had a Blue one and then a White one, exactly like this.



Thirty years later, the wife finally admitted she wanted to meet the boy that drove the white Jeep so she could go wheeling. (Yep- 'twas me).
