That was sad. The interviewer said he couldn't' wait to take his new MOAB off road. The Jeep exec laughed and said don't do that you might not like the paint after. Very disappointing interviewe.

Even after 1,000,000 Wranglers they still can't put a decent f@&$'ing paint job on these things.

Damn, that beer pic made me thirsty...3 more hours til beer:30!!!!

That was so awkward. But, the news that a customer gets it was super cool.

I think the exec with the accent also called the 4-door a Limitied instead of Unlimited. BACK TO YOUR OFFICE EXEC!!! No beer for you!

On one hand I'd like to, but they had over a 30 year run. The jk did it in 7 model years. On the other hand, it has been relatively very popular compared to the older models in foreign markets which has helped

Interesting that the CJ5 and TJ/LJ have identical production numbers.

I'm shocked at this one... I would have bet money that way more TJ's were produced than YJ's!
