Let's put it this way. Jeeps are like children. They're a lot of fun when they're not doing something wrong, but if they are, they're going to take all your time and money away before you can figure out what the hell happened.
User avatar #16075 - freakyorange (05/28/2015) [-]
TJ's are the one everyone has and wants, that makes them expensive. JK's are the ones that every mom has, and you'd have to remove that aspect by putting big wheels and tires on it. Either way, you're going to dump a bunch of money into a hole and occasionally be rewarded witha cookie.

Best thing you can ever do.

no matter which one you get expect to be wrenching on it weekly
they are fun as fuck though
#16055 - apurpleliger (05/27/2015) [-]
I'm no jeep expert, but I'd imagine the newer it is the easier it will be to find parts for it
User avatar #16071 - nigalthornberry (05/28/2015) [-]
I would disagree there the midrange of years would be best because they won't be a collectable and will have parts from wrecked ones in the junkyards
#16076 - apurpleliger (05/28/2015) [-]
He said somewhere else if he got a JK it would be 2012+. Those aren't collectible and parts are still in abundant supply / being manufactured, as opposed to having to find replacement parts from junkyards

try not to get one with the 4 banger. my dad has a 1990 jeep wrangle with one and it's a turd, fun to drive but still a turd
#16048 - benderisgreat (05/27/2015) [-]
Go with the TJ, it's much cheaper to upgrade aftermarket, more skidplates also bigger too , and you get the inline 4.0 instead of the 3.8 v6 no balls turd you will also find in this.

That 3.8 was never a bad motor though.
User avatar #16060 - benderisgreat (05/28/2015) [-]
I learned to drive with one of those, it has no low end and it would burn oil anywhere over 80.
User avatar #16062 - oshora (05/28/2015) [-]
From what ive seen they're a pretty reliable motor.Not at all a perfomance platform but itl get you where you need to go. One of my customers has one thats at around 450k KM and still going strong

It did get me where I needed, not very fashionably but with some injectors I got from a monte carlo it did smoke the tires (well... at least one of them).
User avatar #16051 - methylgroup (05/27/2015) [-]
Haven't the 2012-2015 models of the JK had the Pentastar? Doesn't it have more torque and horsepower than the AMC straight-6? If I got a JK, it'd be 2012 or higher.

join an offroading group in your area, it'll open up places to go, and the other people in the group will be able to help you find the best shops to work on your rig

sorry, didn't see that you had replied again

for steering, i'd suggest a steering assist, which is basically a hydrailic that helps your turn.

i don't know much about gearing really so i'm not the person to ask

dana 44 is good for up to 35's usually, but the front dana 30 is going to be the most worrying. some people have gone up to 40's with dana 30's, but those people are getting really lucky and seriously taking their chances

What would you do for steering?

I'm likely going to be building from a Sport, so I'll have about a 2.7:1 transfer ratio. Any sense in upgrading to an Atlas 4 speed transfer case for the 6:1 right away, or do the suspension and axels first?

User avatar #16012 - chikibriki (05/26/2015) [-]
a steering upgrade would certainly help

if you're running 35's, you're definitely going to want to either build up your axles, or swap them out for stronger ones. usually an axle swap will be about hte same price, but you can only build up a weaker axle so much, better to go with axles that are simply stronger as a base
User avatar #16013 - methylgroup (05/26/2015) [-]
Dana 40's any good, or should I just go balls to the wall and get 60's?

Most recent picture of me. Like I said, I never seriously worked any kind of arm isolation movements, I only ever did rows and pull downs for biceps, and bench for triceps.

Now of course I don't have the best arms by any means, but for a beginner like yourself you don't have to worry about dips and pull ups not being enough.
User avatar #4 to #3 - methylgroup (12/29/2014) [-]
I'm jelly. You look pretty damn swole. My arms are completely skeltal and scrawny, coupled with tiny wrists. I guess that's why I'm so self conscious.

I'm going to get that base of strength up.
