    Default What's the most desirable Jeep ever?

    I see old Commandos for sale and salivate.

    Niners are cool. Overland WJs too.

    mmm IMO, i think Comanches are phasing out, mildly. but i still want one

    I tend to get excited over a CLEAN, rust free low mileage ZJ

    Especially a 5.9.. which are obviously the best jeep ever made

    Its nice to put a beat 93 ZJ next to a clean 97 or 98.. what a difference.

    Im afraid of overlands due to my last experience with blen dor living in buffalo. not a good combo.

    Personally I always loved the grand wagoneer, beyond that I'd say 96-98 laredo's and 99-01 limiteds were the best.

    Have to say a 79 Jeep Wagoneer...besides the obvious lots of room, D44 axles front and rear, available 401 with a 4B Carb, GM TH400 Transmission, a Model 20 Transfer case (all gears no chains). could get all that without a computer, power windows, locks, etc..

    The Original Unlimited. CJ-8 Scrambler. They are pretty rare and even an average one will still go for $10k. They took a regular CJ and welded an exra foot or two off the back of the frame. Unfortunately, they like to rust out at the weld if not cared for and the frame cracks.

    Scramblers are pretty freakin sweet.

    I do love seeing lifted ZJs around cause everyone down here has a lifted wrangler and seeing those over and over again just makes me happier that I have a lifted ZJ
