To be fair, I'd be cranky if my Jeep was always squeaky, leaky, speed limited to 60 and got low teen/high single digit mpg. So I'll cut the early model Jeepers some slack.

When it was started, the JL hadn’t been released. This was the place to hear, rumors, speculation, insider information etc.
That’s when I joined. There are , or were, other JL only forums, but this is the only one I check in with.

I don’t know why.... but I’m glad it was created, there’s a lot of really cool people on here, and I’m glad to be a part of it. Been on several different forums over the years, this one.... by far... the best! .....:)

Why is it JL Wrangler forums and not JLU Wrangler forum since 80% is JLU sales.
I'm guessing it's the same reason they keep making the 2 door Wanglers. Being in the same group as the cool one makes you seem cooler. :bandit:

Amen to that. I love this forum, great helpful people, not as snarky as other forums. Even though I'm not a wheeler or mod monster but somewhere in between a fire-trail weekender and a commuter I feel welcome here.

Thanks for the responses. I actually did notice on another forum some very rude responses to questions. Searching is not always so easy so it is certain that some questions get asked over and over.
Yes if you stick around any forum long enough you'll see the same topics come up again and again.

As for the idea behind the forum. I think it's primarily as Bill mentioned. However, even if the JL had been available when it was created, I think model specific forums are often a way to limit the stuff you don't want to read about. Don't get me wrong, I like the JK, and we've talked about buying my wife one (my brother was selling his). That said, I don't have one and don't want to sort through threads about other models to find something relevant to my JL. I can't imagine trying to find info about lifts, bumpers, sliders or some other common item if we had to sort through JK, TJ and YJ threads to find it.

Having a JK as well as a JLU, I read another forum for the JK stuff. But I'm kinda done with the mods on it so I don't check it as often any more. However, there are some very technical guys there that are great resources for repairs and trouble shooting. This site is slowly growing in that direction also.

I like this site because it is modern and relatively quick to navigate. The other site looks like it was created in the 90's and is slow and clunky.

i find it better to have a model specific forum, which keeps the forum in a controlled manner. i was a member on jeep unlimited and didnt care for it because of other forum members jumps in with useless info. this forum by far is the best one.
