Met a chap this morning interested in getting his son a jeep. Hoping not to steer him wrong I pointed him to the TJ series made between 1997 and 2006. This series has two very good reasons to consider it as a worthy gift. Coil suspension replaced the bouncy leaf springs and more importantly….the legendary 4.0l in line six cylinder engine. 270,000 miles and counting. Every single mile put on lovingly by me baby. So I would say to my friend….get him that jeep. It could be the difference between your son putting you in a high end old folks home or the kind of place you hear about on the evening news!
