I have my YJ lifted 5 1/2" on 33's and love it more than any car I've owned. I have owned over 17 in my lifetime. I drive this car very hard and take it on difficult offroad trails. This is also my daily driver, vacation vehicle and commuter to work. Keep in mind when buying that this is not a smooth driving car, not showy on the interior, but will last you along time and is very easy and cheap to repair. I rock climb, mud bogg, trail ride and drive it on the beach. This is an excellent vehicle.
Offroad capability, reliability, I always know it will get me back home. Distinctive styling and usability. 2.5L and 4.0L are indestructible. I love pulling out Toyotas and big trucks out of the mud.
Fuel economy ... but who cares, it's worth it. I get on average 15.5mpg with the 2.5L 5-speed. But this motor is bulletproof!
