Jeep JK Wrangler, 2007


Good Points
Very capable off the lot. Very comfortable on long drives. I've taken it beyond the call of duty and it asked for more... Very Happy

Bad Points
Stock front bump looks like a couch (Will be getting an ARB bumper).
Engine is pretty soft. Yes the fuel eco is much better... but

What mods have you done?


What mods are on the list to do?
3-4 inch lift
ARB front Bar and Warn Winch
35 inch tires
Sway Bar disconnects
The list goes on, and on, and on

Why did you buy this vehicle?
Loved my old TJ Wrangler, but wanted the extra room of the 4 door Wrangler.

How often do you go offroad?
Used to go every couple weeks, now, not often enough

What will your next vehicle be?
Another JK Wrangler

Hey Dirtyjeep the JK looks great. A mate has one and yep the front bumper makes a great couch.

Thanks Remus I take it by your photo that you have a TJ, I miss mine they are about the most capable 4x4 I have used. Its has taken a while to get used to the JK. I don't regret the change (especially with the price of fuel now) but ... You can't beat a TJ on the dirt.

Hey DirtyJeep, I've got a the same but in Firetruck Red and the Rubicon. Love it!

Will be getting the ARB bar too, although don't love it but it's the best one out at the moment.

Are you doing the trip on the 13th, or is it too sedate for you....?

I don't mind sedate, but I think I have work commitments. I'll have to see.
Speaking of ARB, I just spoke to the guys at UV4x4 in Brendale, around $4000 for Front Bar, Magnum winch, and an OME lift. Not to bad really. Catch you round some time.

Those guys down at UV4x4 are pretty good I had some work down on our last Patrol there. Back when it was still TJM. Still the same people just a different name.

Yep that my TJ and the missus has an XJ, but would love to get a JK rubi. I have been on a few trips with a few JK's and they are pretty unstoppable.

Yea mate so would I, I kind of regret buying the petrol. Its not bad, but compared to the TJ Wrangler 4L its pretty under powered. Aside from that though, they are a great vehicle. Just wish I had more time to use it.

I think we all spend more time thinking about it than doing it. ;)
