Hey guys,

I still remember fondly the years I spent in my 95 YJ. It was a truck unlike anything I had ever owned before, both in versatility and character. I still remember scrambling to pull over to the side of the road in a rainstorm, trying to screw together the roof poles with a coin. That being said I've been seeing a lot of Wranglers on the road and its becoming more difficult to turn a blind eye. To any of you current Jeep owners, would you suggest now is it a good time to buy back in?

I miss seeing YJ's, too bad that no matter where I go its always JK's, not that its a bad thing but I wish there was more love for the YJ.
Being someone that often drives in the city and little anywhere else, design is a big thing to me and if you're like me, design will be a big incentive to buy. Although subtle from the JK, its subtle in all the right ways.

Yeah I'm not sure why but I've always had a preference of the square head lights over the circle ones. Unfortunately the last year the YJ was manufactured was '95, so that's probably why they don't get seen very often on the road. I will have to say though that I bet the mechanical improvements are well worth a slight shift in headlight shape aha.

Too bad that now is you want that look, your only chance is with higher end products like the future Wagoneer. Looking at the Commander sold in China it wears a lot of squared design cues. I prefer the rounder design cues, it provides more of a retro feel and at the same time works with modern tech as we're seeing with the JL.

Definitely don't have any interest in the Wagoneer, and seeing as how many Jeeps are on the road, it was the correct design choice. I've also seen the aftermarket headlight options available and I have to admit the ones with the colored halo rings are pretty awesome looking. Not sure exactly why the taillights on these trucks are still the same as those made in the 90's aha.
