    It's a mix of AMC and Chrysler. As motors, axles, some body, some frame components are the same as the YJ which was AMC designed. But yea, Chrysler did ruin the interior. Said I would never buy one because they made it for Girls. But then I did.

    Willys, Kaiser, AMC, Chrysler, Daimler, now Fiat.

    Actually the coil suspension was a big imporvement over leaf springs (performance and ride wise). But the Mercedes tranny and minivan motor I don't care for. But from what I have seen with the newest version. I may buy a JK as it would be the lesser of the evils. If Jeep made a retro flat fender Willys like Jeep. We would have one. I would never hear the end of it until we did. :aiwebs_016:

    I had a 99' Cherokee through college and until gas prices soared and I couldn't justify driving 80 miles RT everyday. The in-line 6 and 5 speed transmission were bullet proof. It got me through snow storms and into mountains I had no business going. But I had to replace all sorts of electrical BS. I'm not sure I'd buy a newer Jeep as a result, because I'm sure there is more of that than ever.

    (and my wife's Subaru is just soooo nice in those wintry conditions now...heated leather seats, ABS, nice HK audio system, etc...haha)

    We have a 99 cherokee 5-speed still. Still under 100k on it too. Has one issue with the crank position sensor. I have changed it twice with Napa and Carquest parts and it's still acting up. I just got a Mopar sensor. Apparenty that's a known problem with aftermarket parts not working right.

    I would love to have an old flat fender and other willys. My Dad had 2 Willys trucks he use to plow with.
