It's not like I've seen ever vehicle out there, but to my knowledge the only thing better, out of the box, is a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. And I only say that cause the rubicon has the solid axles and lockers on both ends.

I agree with you completely... But the issue there is you're behind the wheel of a Jeep... which isn't even really a jeep since it's running some roided out Chrysler mini van engine... The SFA is nice for off-road but rough on road and let's be honest... Where do we spend most of our time?

True. The wife has a Jeep (it's her dream car) it's a 2006 base 4wd, 6spd, with the 4liter straight 6 (last year they offered them). It's not bad at all to drive. Actually my only real complaint is, it sits "high" up, and it's so damn tiny that whenever I park it, I'm always crooked. I joke about the jeeps, but in reality, I don't hate. I would buy a jeep tomorrow if the price is right and I didn't have an FJ.

I'm with you... I liked the look of the 2011 Rubicon and it definitely has more interior style.. In fact it has a lot more... The red color that they offer is absolutely gorgeous and the convertible option is in a league of its own.. I guess for me what it came down to was do I want to be part of that "Jeep Thing" where you tell people to, "Roll me over if you can read this," or "It's a Jeep thing, you wouldn't understand." The whole wave thing.. I mean come on I have to deal with that horse shit on my motorcycle... Since when am I Mr. McFeely?

When I pretend to be the mailman when I come to visit your wife?

Capt Sensible 02-04-2011 07:03 AM

Hah! We don't have a mailman that comes to our house!

Plumber?

Capt Sensible 02-12-2011 10:56 PM

I tend to do the plumbing. Keep going.
