    Here's my 2009, 6 spd V6 all stock. I'd prefer the old straight 6 but he gets me where I want to go and never complains. It's my third jeep, my 85 CJ7 was my favorite, View attachment 273958

    If it wasn't for the fact that it would be inordinately hard to stuff a decent-sized black bear (let alone a moose) into the back of a Jeep, I'd have one for sure. I love my aging '04 Dodge Dakota and have hauled a LOT of dead large animals in it, as well as several trailers. It has taken me to places where a full-size truck would have a hard time getting into, let alone getting out of. My Dakota has the same Chrysler Power Tech 4.7L motor that was in the Jeep Grand Cherokee up to 2009. It's got some decent power (235HP) and can haul, albeit the '08 refinements added another 75 HP (probaably to provide enough "poke" in the Ram 1500). If the hunting bug ever leaves me or if I somehow end up with enough $ for a fun vehicle as well as a hunting vehicle, I'd get a Jeep for sure (given that short wheelbase Landrover Defenders are as rare as rocking horse poop here and so priced astronomically). Ho-hum!

    I installed a Rustys 2" lift last weekend and had the BFGs mounted yesterday. All the mud is frozen and no real trails in my area, so a frozen mud road pic is the best I can do for now. The difference in stance and traction are astounding.

    I had a Liberty Crd, and beleive me, with suspension, and tires, a liberty is a real Jeep, more capable than most would think, i enjoyed myself pulling so many Wrangler guys who pushed the limit a bit to far, most in snow banks(the diesel torque was just so fun), its not all to have the "big flashy thing", you gotta know how to use it and also, when to stop diggin your grave lol! Most Wranglers and other Jeeps out there run on street tires, for fuel efficiency purpose, and because of that, loose their "go anywhere capability".

    But, still, no matter the year, model, its a Jeep thing, they wouldn't understand!!!:4: DSCN1039_3.jpg

    2016 Jeep Patriot. Wheeled locked and lifted for years. Now I am a home owner and family man. Getting to and from work is more important then rock crawling. :9: It gets me around and fits my "style." :57:

    If you want to buy a new Jeep why do you have to pay extra for off road "Trail Rated " editions? Do decals cost that much?

    Stickers can get expensive.

    Also the "trail rated" versions from the factory usually come with extra skit plates, extra tow hooks, a lower gear ratio or lower geared transmission... Maybe limited slip or brake lock differentials etc.

    Its also a model classification as much as anything. Me personally I could careless and usually go for the lowest model and add what I specifically want. I the case of the high altitude Patriot model I just got, because it was the lowest price Patriot on the lot, and the current model patriot that has ran since late 2000s is being discontinued this year. I wanted to get one before they weren't made any more. I didn't get it for the trails, its for commuting 60 miles of highway to and from work everyday.

    People usually love or hate jeeps. If your just here to hate on jeeps then please exit thread left,

    <-------------------------------------:57:

    Me personally, don't play brand favorites. I like Toyotas, Nissans, Ford, Chevy, Dodge... I put my favoritism more towards specific models then brands.
    If I didn't commute I would probably own a Tacoma or Tundra. If I had enough money I would probably have a dually of some sort with a flat bed for use around the homestead!

    My wife was at the grocery store this morning, and I had her drop me off at a car dealer down the street.

    I accidentally bought this while she was buying toilet paper.

    No cool customized action photos, just my new Jeep sitting in the dealers parking lot.
    But I had to show somebody else, she is sick of hearing about it by now!

    LOL........
    It was sort of planned, not a total surprise.
    But she doesn't really care what I buy, I would never go behind her back though.

    It's a 1999 6 cylinder, the guy I bought it from owns a body shop, so he repainted it a dark pearl blue a few years ago.
    No frame rust or any of the common problems. It doesn't even have any oil leaks. (Crap, I never checked, maybe it doesn't have any oil?)

    I wanted a Jeep because I do all my own service and repairs. The only way to get something simpler to work on is to ride a bicycle.
    I don't haul much anymore, so I sold my F-250 Super Duty last summer.

    A Jeep was never practical for me before, but with no kids at home, and no longer working construction, this thing is gonna be perfect I think.

    Me, the dog, and a canoe...... I don't need any more cargo capacity than that.

    Pretty much a stock 4.0 Grand Cherokee with a 2.5" lift and bigger tires/wheels. Its no Rubicon but it gets me where I need to go and with full time 4WD it has never left me stuck, even in pretty deep snow.

    Once I get this one paid off I would like to find a older Wrangler or even a CJ to pull behind the RV in the background.

    OK,I saw a Jeep today that most likely is owned by a BCUSA member.

    I was downtown Duluth MN, I came out of The Duluth Trading Company store, and a Jeep was parked next to my Jeep.
    The spare tire cover said "All Those Who Wander Are Not Lost"
    Gotta be an Adventure Sworn fan.
    Anyway I got a kick out of seeing it, knowing I may have bumped into the owner here at some point.

    I can only imagine that the base price will be quite high, but worth it. Its the best of both worlds. There is times when you can use a truck but don't want to sacrifice the fun of a Jeep.

    I read earlier today that this was supposed to be built on an extended Renegade frame. That doesn't inspire confidence in the least.

    Mopar already has a wrangler truck conversion as an aftermarket upgrade. It's made by AEV but mopar purchased the rights and put a part # on it. Same goes for a hemi upgrade as well as bumpers/body armor.

    Hopefully, they will just be a wrangler that's built on the truck platform from the factory. But as we all know, corporations care about what draws the quickest dollar and not what's actually best for the buyer.

    Yeah, mine was actually an auto with a blown tranny. I picked it up relatively cheap and had a lot of extra parts from my old XJ. To make a long story short I took all my good stuff and built the green pos and sold my 87 as a mildly built XJ on 31s. In then end it costed me 1,500 bucks after everything was bought and sold. Luckily I'm a mechanic so I flashed the pcm, sourced proper trim pieces and so on, even the stupid yellow fuel economy shift light works on the dash, honestly I forget it was even an auto. Everything looks factory.

    To anybody considering a Jeep I think a JKU is the way to go though, maybe that'll be my next Jeep!
