    This is absolutely true. The JK is way better than the TJ. I honestly think you might regret getting out of the JK.

    Overall length the jk is still longer than the LJ though right?

    I just double checked my notes and it depends. Not sure why there is a range but on the low end, a 2-door JK would be longer but on the high end, an LJ would be longer by a bit.

    LJ total length = 155.4 to 167 inches
    2-Door JK length = 164.3 inches

    Is the difference between the JL and JK comparable to the difference between the JK and the TJ?

    Do you like comforts? Bc a tj has none. I’d trade for a jk if I could.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
