The YJ sat about 2 inches lower than the CJ it replaced and was ridiculed for being too car-like. The wider and flatter springs made it ride nicer than any CJ ever did, and the 21/2-inch by 4-inch box tube frame was a huge improvement over the pieced-together CJ frame. The rectangular lights are the single most noticed feature and the most-often criticized aspect of the Wrangler, but there were a lot of other innovations as well.
