      My K20 was like the high boy, and I was not enthralled by it. It rode fine, but the turn in on corners compared to its last incarnation as a 2wd turned my off.

      It mostly gets down to what do you do with the top, and the doors when you want them in a off road situation.

      So if you want them off you have to take them off before you leave as there is not a...

      As the title states I was thinking of getting a wrangler unlimited as I had posted about earlier. Well I was working at a Jeep dealer, and the Jeep fantasy just fell apart. It basically came down to...

      When youngonlook at any car start it up cold if possible. Listen for odd or bad sounds.

      Next check the engine oil. Make sure it feels like what you expect to find in it. It it feels like thick...

      I often wonder that. As you can slam a Chevy so low with bolt parts speed bumps look like everest, but Ford makes it hard or expensive.

      Is it by default or design.

      When you get to lifting...

      On most transmissions first and second gear are synchronized togather so the 2 to 1 shift makes it easier as 2nd often just seems easier to slot.

      For a average guy it offers up a good meduim duty chassis, and diesel power at very low entry price. I have seen them go as low as $5000 with plenty of service left.

      Only bad thing about them is...

      Yes I have, and they were almost as good as my M22 was, and the engine probably helped faster up shifts then a over cammed 350 did. So it is truly hard to really compare.

      A guy I knew had a later...

      I came from a 74 C20 camper special, that I turned into a light pre-runner, and that got made into a light duty K20. So the dynamics would be more normal for me.
