Wouldn't it be fun to take a bone stock XJ and a new Trailhawk and do some wheeling?

I think the Trailhawk should come out on top in a side by side comparison as an overall vehicle.

When it comes down to styling the XJ wins hands down for me, I like the box like lack of styling.

If you switch to the aftermarket hop ups once again the XJ takes home the trophy, but like me the XJ has been around for a long time and there has been plenty of time for improved parts. I just wish I find hop up pats for my body, it could really use to be rejuvenated.

Give it a little time and the manufactures will have the Trailhawk eating up the trails like a fully modified XJ, but the haters will still hate.

Up here a new Trailhawk , equipped as close to that of my 98 XJ Sport, would run just over 35K. I paid $400 for my XJ, that extra $34,600 could buy a whole lot of upgrades for my XJ, and or beer to install them with

Either way, I like Jeeps, I like seeing pictures of them, and I like seeing what they can do so ignore the haters, slap their fingers or what ever, just keep the pictures coming

Well stated and I wholeheartedly agree...

Yup. I'm just waiting for a KL owner willing to push one to its limits.

If you compare specs. The trailhawk wins for sure.

The price paid argument doesn't interest me. The XJ was a new vehicle once too. They weren't always $800 beater rigs.

Sooner or later someone will take there brand new KL out and destroy it on some hardcore trail that isn't meant for dual duty vehicles. Someone probably already has done it, but didn't post the video on YouTube yet

No they weren't, in 1998 a Sport went for around $21K. In today's money, using an inflation calculator, that would be just over $30K. Since the Trailhawk is a step or two up from the Sport the pricing is right in line with each other. I do however feel somewhat insulted that you called my $400 CND XJ a beater


But to get back on topic, this thread isn't about which is better, it is about pictures of Trailhawks. Pictures of them getting down and dirty would be even better.

I hope to learn a lot from this forum; already have an itch to change the filters and maybe intake. But only had a chance to go fishing not get dirty. Less than a month in though.

not a crime, you can take as many public photos as you want. drive up an ask dude to join the forum, or just breeze by and snap the shot,
to my knowledge if your going to take photos of people, ya gotta have their consent to post their image, to my knowledge their is nothing about machinery giving consent.
id say go for it, and black out the plates..
