Stolen Vehicle

Well someone went a stole my wifeís minivan and now she wants my S10 Blazer (my daily driver). She thinks I should be one getting a replacement vehicle so Iím thinking.... Whatís wrong with another Jeep? NOTHING. Itís just what jeep should I be looking at. YJ, TJ or XJ. I want the smooth ride of the coil spring, A/C, the kind of stuff my CJ7 doesnít haveÖ What Iím looking for are the Proís and Conís of each model.

78 CJ7 304V8 Fully locked. Got Rocks?

Re: Stolen Vehicle

I can tell you both TJ's I've had rode great on the road. Even now with 35's it still rides nicely, a little scary on the overpass doin 65 with all the potholes, but I'm used to it now. The A/C is nice to have as long as you get the 6 cyl. I don't know if you would be able break 35 mph in a 4 banger with a/c[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]. I can't say about the yj's cause i've never even rode in one. All I can say is get the 6 cyl either way you go, especially if you plan on getting one with a/c.

Re: Stolen Vehicle

I can tell you that the TJ is a smoother ride than the YJ. But if you already have a CJ 7 to play in then if I were you I would go with the XJ. 4.0L Ac You will not be disapointed. And now is the time to get one, they are going to be getting hard to get your hands on now that they are not being produced anymore.

Re: Stolen Vehicle

My daily driver is a 2000 XJ, owned by the county. Love it, comfortable, plenty of room in the back to carry stuff, a little more civilized ride than an SWB.

Re: Stolen Vehicle

A minivan? well I have a TJ, and it rides great on the road, better than any YJ I've ridden in. In MY opinion, it does better offroad also. Make sure to get the D44 rear option, the 35 sucks. I have only done a bit of off roading, mainly because it's so new, but it's not afraid of mud, and wants to keep going. Very nice all the way around, and I can't comment on the YJ. i don't have one. But the ones my friends have and I've ridden in/borrowed have driven strange. 4cyl is inadeguate, and In MY opinion the leaf spring doesn't rub me the right way. I also don't like the dashboard layout, but other than that its cool. I mean it IS a jeep.

Give me some fresh air, and give me that farm, give me some time with you in my arms, cause I'm gonna feed my soul, where the black top ends...

Re: Stolen Vehicle

If it were me I replace it with anohter Jeep, this one... > Heck, you really don't want payments, do you?

Of course I'd recommend a nice paint job and a diesel engine... but other than that... no one would steal it... and if they did they couldn't figure out how to start it!

Re: Stolen Vehicle

Did you accidentally leave the keys in the minivan with the doors open at the local chop shop again?

Re: Stolen Vehicle

LEVE, is the starter on the floor of the M-715 too????

IF......he was old enough to remember the dimmer switches on the floor.
