Funny thread, but ".....this bad boy needed a V8 obviously...." would be awesome and ridiculous :like:
He actually did put in a V8, that thing is a beast. It was/is always a bit cooler than other Jeeps in the area.

Give it ten years and those with JLs will probably join the Old School camp in a lot of these areas.

I went back and forth between getting a used YJ or getting a JLU. In the end I went with the JLU for my daily driver but one day I want to add a YJ as a weekend vehicle.

And I know that YJ is not old school enough for some people but it was my first Jeep so I'm partial to them.

And I like square headlights so there.

You know your old school OG when every new model is not as good as the model you have, for myself I own the best year/ model ever produced a
1943 MB..... period. End of story.

I had a 2a which was similar. I’d always dreamed of owning a fully functional M38A1

Old School:
Only paid $8,000 so they can overlook all of the Jeep idiosyncrasies and have leftover money to fix the inherent problems in their cheaply made utilitarian vehicle. Moreover, dealing with those problems make them feel more manly because comfort and reliability is for pussies and suffering is life. Totally worth the headache because the top and doors come off and it can go anywhere.

New School:
Paid $60,000 and find it difficult to overlook all of the Jeep idiosyncrasies because at that price and in this day and age those problems should be non-existent considering vehicles costing less than 1/3 of the price don't seem to suffer the same issues. Moreover, dealing with those problems is a huge inconvenience and takes time away from what is truly important: enjoying the ride. Totally worth the headache because the top and doors come off and it can go anywhere.

Well, if you paid $60k I'd be upset with myself then at the JL. I'd put you in with the Land Rover crowd that pay a lot more for a lot less in quality, resale value and smarts.

Miss our '84 Scrambler/CJ8. Had 112K miles on it when I finally gave it to my neighbor for a hunting truck in late '90s. It finally died, from rust I think, nothing in the power train...
