Well... It was bound to happen. Chrysler needed something in the line-up to compete with the H3 and Dodge really didn't have anything to fit the bill.

There is a definate resemblence between the two with the aspect ratio of the body and glass. As far as I'm concerned, a 4 door wrangler is about as cool llooking as a four door Corvette. If I wanted a four door , I would opt for a Grand Cherokee or Ford F-350 Crew Cab. Some things go together, as some things just dont.

I didn't know you could get a Cherokee or an F-350 with a soft top!!!!

And if your 4x4 doesn't have a soft top, you look about as cool as geriatric on a three wheel bicycle.

I've owned a 2-door Wrangler, and now a 4-door the 4 is just as good off road as the 2 was and much better as a daily driver.

If people are so stupid they can't tell them from Hummers, that is their problem.

Actually the Jeep concept vehicle was around long before the Hummer which copied the look. There is some resemblance but it's the H3 that looks like the Jeep.

The shape and profile absolutely have a similarity. Of course I would rather have the Jeep.

the H2 doesnt look much like it but the H3 is very similar. They could pass for cousins.

X2 - I'm surprised Chysler didn't sue Chvy for the copy.
