TJ Owner...soon to be JK unlimited owner

Hi all
I have a 2006 tj which I love, but life and family dictates a bit more room so end of may (last payment) we drop the hammer and go 4 door, soft top only. Probably go X Sport as its a dailey driver and weekends and vacations mostly dirt road in the north east. Soft top only (2nd floor condo, kinda tough to hang drag the top up the stairs!)
Thought I would stop by, introduce myself and learn a bit more about the gigantic 4 door unlimited (after a yj, then a tj, trust me, it feels gigantic!)
Gotta learn how to park all over again!

Welcome welcome!
And yeah it will feel huge at first then you'll get used to it....
then you'll lift it and put huge tires on it....and it wil feel huge all over again

Yes, but there's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No. I'm sure of it, I hate him.

Welcome.

Looking to do the same myself in the near future. Once the TJ is sold and we get some nagging debts paid off, I'll be in the market for a JK rubicon Unlimited.

Welcome! They do feel huge, but you will be pleased with how nimble they are on the rocks. You have surprisingly good belly clearance, but you notice the length the most in the turns.
