MiscellaneousHappy Birthday to Us: 10 Years of Jeep News

It was on this date in 1998 that I posted the first story on mike's totally free jeep news - an article about the purchase of Chrysler by Daimler-Benz!

Since then I've published almost 3,000 stories, and we've had almost 30,000 registered users.

Thanks to everyone who keeps coming back for more and thanks to our advertisers who make it all possible!

 Re: Happy Birthday to Us: 10 Years of Jeep News
I found it!!! In celebration of 10 years of Jeep News, I went through the archives and found my favorite RANT against none other than everyones favorite YJ lover OOJ aka. OnlyOneJeep...We all remember him, we all still hate his YJ...

After like 6 months of TJ slamming from OOJ, and blabbing about his sucky YJ, I had Finally had it.

(Nov '04)
And Third of all, OOJ, you are such a Jag, and I dont mean the one made by FORD...the YJ sucks, it ALWAYS sucked, if it didn't suck, they would never have made the TJ, but since they did, it (the YJ)must have REALLY sucked, or they would have had 2 models, like the CJ-5 and CJ-7, but since they didn't, then it means that it just plain ol' sucked, you suck, If the YJ actually did conquer the RUBICON trail, then it did so with so much trail damage that it would then suck to the point that it would be undriveable, and they would have had to scrap it immediately afterwards, and did I mention that you and your YJ suck?, the YJ soft-top sucks, the suspension sucks, the I-6 and 2.5L do NOT suck, but the YJ transmissions suck SOOO much that they make the engines which do not suck, suck....You still suck, your YJ still sucks, it sucked last week, it will suck next week, the rear seat sucks, the spare tire bracket sucks, the fuel filler location sucks, the roll bar sucks, the soundbar sucks, the swaybar sucks, the trackbar sucks, the stereo sucks, the glovebox sucks, the center console sucks, the shifters, the seat brackets, the U-joints, the bumpers, all suck, not all YJ's suck, only YOUR YJ sucks, the front axle disconnect technically sucks since it operates off of a vacuum line, but even if it didn't suck in the form of a vacuum, the design still sucks, the wheelwells suck, the brakes suck, the heater sucks, the AC sucks, the airbags suck...Oh, I'm sorry, the YJ doesn't have airbags, if you get into an accident, that REALLY sucks, and before you say that you don't need airbags if you wear your seatbelt, guess what...the seatbelts suck too, just like you and your sucky YJ, you know what YJ stands for?

(Y)ou're a (J)ag

I HOPE the TK has 4 wheel independent suspension, because it would still be better than your rusted out suck piece of crap YJ

This just in...OOJ STILL SUCKS...

Death to the YJ, Long live the TK and it's 5 piece removable hardtop with zip-in removable canvas panels.

UPDATE...Hey JeepXK, I did forget that square headlights and goofy sun and palm tree stick on graphics suck (remember the MANGO Islander? did that package suck) I mean, it's bad enough that the graphics sucked when they were new, but give them about 5 years of sitting in the sun to fade, and that sucked even more than when they were new...I bet OOJ's YJ had the Islander package...slap on some of the 'EURO' double blades on the wipers (HEY!, I forgot that the YJ wipers suck too) and the pink coil antenna, and bolt those euro mirrors to the windshield frame, and you have OOJ's sucky YJ---THANX for reminding me...and yes OOJ, I did spell vacuum wrong, and I am now correcting it, however, as someone who does not suck, I usually don't think along the lines of sucking, and vacuum is just not in the TJ vernacular, since the TJ front axle does not have a suck axle disconnect...I have still come to the conclusion that you and your YJ did, do, and always will suck...But, hey, look at it in a constructive way, if there were nobody like you in the world who did suck, then there would be nobody like us who do not suck, and if your YJ did not suck, then all jeeps would be equal, and then all jeeps would in fact, suck.

I'm sure 4 years hasn't been friendly to OOJ's YJ, and it probably sucks even more than it did 4 years ago...Not all YJ's, only OOJ's YJ.

Nonetheless, in going through the archives looking for this rant, I found alot of predictions made by myself and others that never materialized,some for the better, some for the worse, such as the 5 piece removable hard/soft top panels..I guess the predictions were just wishful thinking...Thanks Mike for 10 years of slams and jams and jabs, and really bad YJ appearance packages!
