I wish they still did a stretched 2 door like the LJ. It was a really great compromise between added towing capacity, interior room and still short enough to navigate trails.

I miss my old LJ, should never have sold it... Id still be buying a JL though.... the LJ really needed a bit of an aggressive tire and small lift to look right to me.. but when it did, it was sweet.

I admit in moments of weakness after spending nearly $20k in repair/maintenance last year, I've considered trading in my LJ for a JL, but I think the dark times have passed. I'll keep mine, add a JL later.

That’s cool. Thanks for posting. Your friend has done a nice job of maintaining the paint :)

I'm also torn between replacing my LJ now and with a JLRU. LJ's rock ready and I don't need to worry about trail damage. JLRU going to be $50K plus at least $7K+ for tires, wheels, bumpers, winch, some skids and lift to make it rock ready. Tough decision.

There was a sub-7k mile 2006 LJR (manual!) on eBay with a buy it now price of $30k. Were it not for the inherent uncertainties of eBay, combined with distance, combined with challenges in getting financing, I'd have probably bought that instead of a JL.

(Well, and lack of warranty is also obviously a bit of a downside.)

I can’t wait to be able to take a side by side pic of my Elsctric Lime Green LJ, and my Mojito JLU.

The red looks great! It’s in better shape than mine!

2018 JLU
i almost bought an LJ and worked my way to a brand new JLU lol. the work that i would have needed to put into the LJ (repairs/maintenance) would have equaled the cost of my JLUS, and still wouldnt hold a candle to it. if i had the money id have both. a modern, factory LJ JL would be nice. never going to happen unless it replaces the JL.
