    WHY You Should Buy A YUGO.
    Let me give you some info that will allow you to better appreciate this classic car:

    There are Many advantages to a
    YUGO

    Collision insurance is null.

    There are two kinds of collusions:
    A) When someone hits you;
    B) When you hit someone.

    A) Having a YUGO HIT can only improve it !
    B) HITTING anything with a YUGO is impossible since you must first get it to move!

    Low insurance costs is just ONE reason for owning a YUGO

    DOOOG

    Actually, the YUGO was the World's first SUV.

    Let me explain how that works: in Yugoslavia at the time when you were driving down the road, you were "off-road" as there weren't any roads to drive down.

    My favorite YUGO was the Champaignoise --of which only three were made. It came with a bottle of Champaign under the hood. You stuck a rag into it, and convinced the car behind you it was a Molotov Cocktail-so they push you.

    The reason it was discontinued was the dificulty in finding the hood.

    The Yugo was well-desiged; instead of costly rust-proofing, it came with pre-rusting as free option. Thus effectively prevented rusting.

    Even the Standard YUGO was extrodinary comfortable. Having no front seats, this allowed you to swaap-in your livinng-room Chaise. Since your Living Room was also your Bathroom in Yugoslavia, rest stops were a thing of the past.

    Automatic Transmission Inn fact after a two-hour drive, it automatically bought you home , as you never departed. Unless you had one of the three Champaignoise versions. And could find the hood.

    Custom-built Radio: The educational system made sure every YUGO came equipped with its own crystal radio, built by fourth graders. For a small bribe, you could get a Sixth-grade radio. Speakers were made of aluminum foil and doubled as the rear-view mirror.

    In all the years it was produced not one YUGO was stolen,

    The motor coach picked a really good racing line through the curve.
    To those who might be saying goodbye, take your sadness in stride as you walk toward the beautiful horizon.

    Hello IMO'ers.

    Getting ready to buy a new Jeep. A REAL Jeep, a Wrangler, not a Jamboree or Liberty or whatever they are called. My current 2008 is a 4 door and rides very smoothly. It's a Sahara Unlimited with every option you can get. I will get the same Package on whatever I order ( I have never even unzipped the cover from the canvas top even though I installed hooks and pulleys in the garage to hold the hardtop )

    Question is: If I buy a 2 door will the ride be rougher on the highway? I do know that all of our F-Series Super Duty 350's and 250's except the one King Ranch has the full 4 doors and 8' beds. It has the short back seat and the six foot bed and rides a lot different. Does Jeep do anything different with the suspension on a 2 door?

    Thanks,

    Rick

    Wheelbase and overall length are factors, though I suspect an appreciable part of the noted ride difference between SWB and LWB is as much or more about weight, with weight distribution and center of gravity in particular.

    There are no real Jeeps left in production. The last one died off with the TJ.
