Nearly fell off my chair

Scanning the paper this morning I saw an article titled 'Ten top bargain 4x4s for under £15k: cars to beat the rain, snow, mud and chilly weather'. Guess what sits at the top???? it went on to say

'The Jeep Wrangler sits at the top of our list with rock-solid residual values. The Jeep marque has a lot of credibility when it comes to off-roading and it is the one through-and-through off-road brand in our list. In fact its lineage can be traced right back to the Second World War, and the ‘Wrangler’ model has been with us for a quarter of a century now. Although available with much larger engines, with UK fuel prices being what they are, a smaller-engine, diesel version will hold its value better and cost you far less to run.'

IN THE UK!!!!!!! Land Rover toppled as the number one choice.....not 1st of April is it?

I had no idea there were so many Brits on here or that they had the exchange rate memorized

Do the JK's come with tea makers like your tanks do? That would be cool.

In fact the prototype Land Rover, nicknamed 'Centre Steer', was built on a Jeep chassis and axles. My wife's works vehicle is a 2013 Land Rover Discovery. We both prefer our JKU.
