Has anyone else noticed the 4 door body line resembles the hummers in a basic way. They are growing on me but will wait for a few years to make sure all that new tech works over time.

for some reason I can't get the new shape to work for me..perhaps in person I will love it, but right now it reminds me of a box sort of like a volvo...and the flat faced rims they are running would seem to get the crap scraped out of them, vs the more recessed one's on current jeeps.

My tj did just as good when it was stock and I beat it. I even took it through a real mud hole not that little puddle.

The new JK's perform as well as the TJ's on the trail. At least the couple that I have run with did. And one had a very inexperienced driver. I think that the lines and size will grow on us eventually.

yup seems like with them not being set back that they could get scraped quite easily just running the edge of a rock

Not Ready to Cave In Yet

I must admit it was a "nice" video, but I'm not ready to make a change yet. I plan on having my '04 Unlimited for many years to come. I didn't feel the "test" course footage we saw was much more than a 4 or 5 rating. I can't imagine the long wheel base of the new 4 door Unlimited can really handle more than a 6 rating. As often as mine has been snagged I can see the words "twice as often" coming to life for that even longer wheel base.

Ok, but how about the 1 1/2 yr "argument" over IFS, who started that one and what were thy thinking. An IFS wrangler! That one's so bad someone should go back and slap their parents.

Yeah someone should go back and slap their parents. I didnt think a IFS would be right for a jeep wrangler like i didnt think its right to offer a 2wd 4door unlimited. Its not a FJ to have an IFS.
