I liked those... Not anymore than the XJ, I see that one as "the older, but still sort of modern Wrangler."You could trade a pack of Lucky's for a YJ. Not even a cameo in Jurassic Park was able to make that styling cool.
Wrangler and the entire 70-series from Toyota would like a word. The 70-series line isn't even available in the US, but it is in Australia, where rules are even more strict. The 80 series was solid front and rear with coil springs and it was perfectly comfortable on pavement or over hard terrain.Hardcore off-roaders will be content buying Jeep XJs and Toyota Tacos until the supply runs out.
When that happens there will be a true crisis.
I'm not even sure you could make a solid axle 4x4 SUV and be compliant to modern standards now that they're classed as passenger vehicles instead of trucks. A bigass front axle means the engine has to sit up high which means your hood has to be high which means your nose needs to be square which means it kills pedestrians.
good luck, stay safe.Roadtrip planning, Covid avoidance edition!

Enid->LA 20+hr caffeine-fueled hellride because I don't trust Arizona in the slightest (note to self: Get AZ BLM map. Just in case 'sleep in the god damned desert' is indicated)
How many sets of T-tops do you think it would need to cover the entire roof?Ok fair; with that spoiler it’s a Foooooooooxx body and call it a day. Kinda wish it had T-tips to keep the Rad theme, but that’d be a huge pain.
