    YJ vs TJ

    I have 2 YJ's both with 4cyl. I'm thinking about replacing one with a 6cyl that has AC. Would you stay with the YJ's or consider a TJ as the price difference is not that wide.
    Which one & why?

    Depends what your going to use it for? If money didn't matter I would have a brand new Rubicon but I got the yj cause it is cheaper and easier to modify. Personally I think the yj will take more abuse but the tj is a better built machine than I originally credited it for.

    If your doing a lot on road driving I think the TJ rides nicer. But I have never owned a YJ only been a passenger a few times.

    TJ runs a higher risk of death wobble. YJ is cheaper and easier to modify. A lot has to do with your intended use.

    As an onlooker, I'm wondering if people would choose manual or automatic?

    Both TJ I have had where both 4 cylinder so I look for a stick to have the 4:10 gears.

    My wives JKU is an automatic and love it for vacation and stuff.

    Personal preference, like Ford v. Chevy.

    Pros and Cons with each. Find a good deal and jump on it...less worry YJ vs TJ.

    If you can swing a Rubicon, that is the way to go. To build a non Rubicon into a Jeep with Rubicon capabilities is very expensive.
