Just found this thread. Being from Illinois most of of my wheeling is done with road trips. Here is my 04 LJ.



My hopes were to use it to pull my teardrop camper when wheeling out of state. But it struggles to pull it especially in the mountains. so I got a new tow vehicle that pulls the trailer easily. But I am keeping the LJ!

I got a '94 Jeep Wrangler that's at a tranny shop right now, the torque converter blew. Hopefully I'll have it back in a few days

I'll have to see if I can dig up some pics of my buddy's Power Wagon.

Nice LJ. Glad you could keep 2 jeeps in the driveway.

Did not make my wife happy, but she's been unhappy before. If the LJ would have worked for towing I would have never bought the JK.

Took the JK out to CO. with friends last July. The new jeep has no trouble pulling my trailer in the mountains.

Had a fun club ride yesterday. I tried something new; I attached a 30' tow strap to my trailer hitch with a shackle. This turned out to come in handy as the guy behind me got stuck on a narrow trail and I pulled him out with that strap. Later, I got to use my new winch for the first time to pull the guy out that was stuck in front of me, lol.

Just got this a couple weeks ago. One day when we see warm weather again, I look forward to dropping the top and shedding doors!
