No one buys a big expensive SUV to really tear up the trails. They just want the ability to get thru the snow, get down the bad road to the fly fishing hole, etc.
So I'm not one of the ones crying about the IFS, or the cushy air ride. I think that stuff is smart.
I just wish they didn't keep looking more and more like the Chrysler minivans.
Maybe just me, but I like the looks of the WJ (2000-2004?) the best. Of course, I own one of those, so you know...
My 2000 GC is getting old, but I don't think a new model will be one the short list. So many nice cars. Volvo xc90, Subarus, -- lots of "soft roaders" that will work great here in the winter time for my wife.
