I'm on my fourth Jeep at this point. First was a 2.5L TJ, then a 4.0L TJ, then a '73 J4000 which I love and still own but it will never be finished.
I remember thinking when the 4-doors came out that they weren't real Jeeps. I thought "real" jeeps shouldn't have creature comforts. I also thought that Rubicons were over-rated and not worth the extra coin.
I now know I was completely off base and I don't think I'll ever go back now. I could have never run 35's on either of my TJ's without dropping serious coin on gears and lifts, now I've got lockers 4.1 tcase and 4.10 gears. This Jeep is far more capable than any of my other ones and I get to wheel in comfort with my family, that's a complete win win for me.
