Hiya Folks

New to the forum, but not new to Jeeps. My first was an 87 Wrangler. Next came a 96 Cherokee, and the latest is a 2005 Unlimited. I love this truck. But on to my question...

I drive dirt roads about 50% of the time. It's rough driving. I've noticed that on bigger bumps it feels like the truck bottoms-out in the rear; I can hear and feel the 'thump'. It feels like the Cherokee used to feel when the back was loaded, but this happens with an empty vehicle.

Has anyone else experienced this? Any thoughts on the subject?

Thanks.

1986 Wrangler? ??? The first year model of the Wrangler was 1987; prior to that, the SWB 'Universal' style Jeep models were called CJs.

So was that an actual 1986 year model (!!!) or did you just buy an 87 really early, in what happend to be 1986? Or did you really have a CJ?

And if it was an 86 Wrangler, can you post a picture? I've never seen one! Cool

Thanks!

My mistake. Had to have been 87 then, because I remember being less than thrilled with the square headlights. I'd shopped for a used CJ but ultimately decided to buy new, being young and all. Thanks for the correction, though. Now I have to go photoshop that signature pic...
