Why Do People Love Their Jeeps So Much?

If you asked the standard Jeep enthusiast why they love this particular family of vehicles so much, they might have trouble putting it into words. However, we’ve spent countless hours working closely with both these vehicles, and the people who love them so much. As such, we’ve been able to identify some common themes… about just why they are so beloved.

Here are a few reasons why people absolutely LOVE their Jeeps:

  • They effectively set the standard for off-road performance when it comes to modern SUVs. Even the earliest Jeeps showed tremendous ability to get through rough terrains of all kinds, including mud, sand, and snow. While modern technology has enhanced the Jeep’s ability to get through any terrain, even classic models show and undeniable ability to perform in the most adverse conditions.
  • They stay valuable long after they’re bought. If you need any proof of the value of a Jeep, just look at how much a well-kept, refurbished CJ will sell for these days. Like any classic car, older Jeep Wrangler models will require some care to hold their resale value. However, the sheer popularity of these vehicles means that they never dip too far down when it comes to their value.
  • They’re simply amongst the most fun vehicles to drive. Nothing feelings quite like seeing a mild 4×4 turn into an utter beast as soon as you take it off-road. And while they are extremely capable off road, Jeeps also handle very well when driving it from day to day. A low center of gravity and great stability means it really does handle like a dream.You could probably get plenty more reasons from other Jeep lovers. Everything from the practicality of the cargo space to the look and stance of these wonderful vehicles plays a factor when considering the love affair of every Jeep enthusiast.

The History Of The YJ Jeep Model

The Jeep CJ had been a very popular vehicle, emblematic of American engineering success from 1944 to the mid-80s. However, after the second oil crisis, Jeep turned their focus to lighter and more efficient vehicles, which were becoming much more popular.

Made from 1987 up to 1985, the Jeep YJ was considered an evolution of the CJ. After first unveiling in 1987, the first commercial Wrangler YJ vehicles were available in the same year. Constructed by American Motors, the YJ was designed to be both more comfortable and more aesthetically appealing than the Jeeps of the past. It was intended to be an eye-catcher and crowd-pleaser for every day drivers, and introduced a lot of the elements common in most modern Jeeps.

This lighter and better driving Jeep carried over a few components from the CJ, such as the Dana axles, and further cemented many aspects of what makes a Jeep design a Jeep. However, it’s also well known for the square headlights,
unique to the YJ, and somewhat of an acquired taste.
