Yep, you'll like it. Can't speak for the auto tranny, but the TJ is nice. It'll go a lot more places than you think as well, just keeps going. As to the TJ parts laying around, that's what the warranty is for! Ours is almost 4 years old, has over 75K on it, and is still under warranty. Happy wheeling.

Hey elusive, if you don't luck out and get the Dana 44 for the rear end I have a couple of axles with 4.11's in it and I'll sell the to you only real cheap.

I may not like what you say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it.

even my little sister is UNHAPPY with the 3 speed auto offered in the TJ

get the 5 speed, the dealerships offer the auto for free for a reason, THEY CANT SELL THEM

otherwise the TJ is a really nice ride, just exoect lots of noise, and terrible gas mileage with an auto

hey elusive - you're ex-almost-jeeping buddy in DC here. :) So T wants to nuke the neon and go big time eh? And you're gonna make payments? Gosh - you're gone a month and look at what happens! :) I hope you all are doing well..... keep taking those pics and having them posted - your jeep looks great, btw; will eventually want to hear all about the trip to tellico in July. Be well. The "x"
