Thats an old pic. The BP now uses the 4 door Rubicon. There are still some 2 door Rubi's out there but not many. Even though I will burn in hell for this, the Jeep is not well suited for LE work.

All the lifeguards here in SoCal drive 'em. Right down onto the beach and back onto the road.... rescue boards on the roof, gear inside. The other day I had a girlfriend with me (she has a rubi)... and she said *how can I get that job? - Driving my jeep up and down the beach....* And the border patrol here use them now in place of the Hummers they used to drive.

SoCal border patrol uses the JKU's too, although they still have some Chevy's out there.

And Burbank city parking enforcement uses JK's. Not sure why they need Jeeps for parking enforcement though.

The boarder patrol is another big government waste of money and it doesn't work very well. There are millions of illegals up here doing jobs us lazy gringoes don't want to do at very low wages. They do most all truck farm labor nation wide. If you go buy a head of lettuce or cabbage a illegals probably picked it. They lay almost all the block in every new walmart built in the good ol USA. They fallow the building trade around. Sam says buy American while he employes illegals (through contractors) under the table! We really need these people and america would be lost without them.

Several years ago they were also accused of using illegals in the stores cleaning crews. I assure you that Walmart takes every possible step in screening contractors to avoid this.

Yeah we would be lost without all the illegals committing the crimes that us "gringos" are too lazy to committ such as dui (many invovling others being severly injured and killed), drug dealing, tax evasion, identity theft, not to mention sucking up free medical care and welfare, free public education, and recently in California and Texas, illegals being granted free college tuition. Not to mention them committing a crime by crossing the border illegally in the first place. I wonder what this country would be like if we didnt have all those illegals......

I will now get off my shine box and go sit in the corner.

Mostly dui's committed by illegals? Hmm. Montana has the highest alcohol related traffic crashes in the nation. Are those from illegal Canadians?

I live 8 miles from the Mexican border and find that the crime rate is actually better here than most places in the US.

At least they are using a Jeep to Patrol the border. I like the looks of those pics you guys posted.

I do feel they would be better off if we equiped them with these and actually let them use them.

This thread could deteriorate pretty quickly with talk about the people rather than the vehicle. Then the mods will come in and shut it down. Hopefully we can keep the discussion about the hardware...the jeeps.

If it weren't so far to the liquor stores the numbers would be lower.

It is a govt. agency. Why a Jeep? I know there has to be bidding, contracts ect.. So all that has to come into play. I saw this show called Border wars about the border patrol and the U.S. Mexico border and those guys drove some kind of truck with a small holding cell on the back. And they stuff the law breakers in there. Kind of like a clown car. I can see the Jeep as a control vehicle but as a multipurpose, no.

Anyone else notice they mounted the light bar back so they could use the freedom top??

I'm 99% sure the economic collapse is directly linked to the recent stricter immigration "crackdown" over the last few years. Immigrants were willing to do the work nobody else wanted to do. When you disrupt the foundation, the whole structure falls. They weren't leaching off of us, they were building our nation, literally.

Is it just me, or does it seem whenever the government wants to take "action" against something, it always gets worse?

Hate to say this but please get back on topic otherwise it will get shut down. This isnt a thread to complain about the government or the illegals. And yea I do know that I did make one comment on it earlier in the thread. No need to go there.

But back to the jeeps.

National Park Service Rangers in the Canyonlands Maze District drive Wrangler 4-door jeeps. Not sure of the year but it was all decked out with rear bumper with extra gas cans, shovel, jack, etc. It may have also been lifted. If you have ever driven the road thru Teapot, you will understand why.

Here in NY, the Department of Environmental Conservation police use the jeep grand cherokees. Con-Ed who controls the electricity county wide does have a few Rubi's that look pretty sweet though!
