Are you refering to the Liberty and Patriot, and Commander? Because my Wrangler isn't "Trail Rated" (Except by me)

You are correct. I was surprised to find out it is one big@ss airbag. I always thought it was three separate ones. Didn't do anything to save my ribs, but all I had was a scrape on my head from it. Seeing how far the side and roof came in from the impact, without that airbag, I'm sure I'd be getting coloring books for Christmas for the rest of my life.

drivebytruckerz I think we should refrain from hunting family.. Jeeps are off limits.. it's cannibalism.. Or terrorism..

dkswift Hey, I loved my Commander. It's probably the only reason I'm here today. So I'll never bag one...

You can personalize a Jeep thousands of different ways with thousands of different parts, top down, top up, sunrider, doors on, off, half etc.... You belong to a group that waves (most times) and would help a fellow Jeeper no matter what.

It is also the most fun youll ever have on (or off) the road hands down!

Hummer 2 + 3 dont really have any of those things! They are expensive SUV's that are somewhat comfortable to take on road trips and if you try to do serious climbing in one, you'll end up stuck or with a broken axle which has happened TWICE to a friend of mine in Moab (h3).

Im pretty sure you have nothing to worry about ( and why would you anyway??)
Most Jeeps...

I didn't see any 2WD Wranglers on Jeep's website for the current model year.

I like where you head is inferno girl, more people buy them for whatever reason then inturn jeeps are pumped out harder and faster with an excess for parts and or cheaper used jeeps expanding our comunity. But at what cost?
Maybe they'll get ranger rovers etc..

Lol who says jeep was the next best thing.. Hummers are below jeeps.
06-17-2010 10:45 AM
Pontiackid87 I'v seen these hoods... there not really just a HUMMER thing but also a good heat dissipater id put one on my hood but that would mean getting rid of the APEX logo.

Again, this is Chrysler thinking.....
06-17-2010 10:13 AM
JIMBOX If you don't like the way a HUMMER looks--don't buy one

If you think the JK "unlimited" looks like a HUMMER, just buy one and MODIT

If your social comfort is more important to you than you and your families comfort, you should start drinking --a lot !!

PTaylor I like the original hummer, but the cost to own and repair was just outrageous. It was never meant for typical people to own and drive. Then came the H2, I didn't like that. then the h3, and that thing is just downright ugly.

IMO, they did to the hummer what Chrysler is doing to the Jeep, they are taming it, making it more of a family vehicle. If it makes them money, then they will keep it up. If it doesn't then they will change it. If it's a complete loss, they will can the Jeep for some time. If they get real bad off, they'll start selling off names.

don't think I'm wrong, when the "big 3" were having their financial woes, guess who was looking at them very closely....China.

yeah, there is a slim possibility that at some future point China could own the Jeep name and be making them. don't believe it, do some research.

I'm not saying it will happen, but it is one possibility. I know for a fact that they were talking to China. again do some Googling.

TommyChill People bought Hummers for their social impact (neg or pos)... Almost a status symbol...

People buy Jeeps for different reasons...

AfterMath I think Hummer drivers may look towards Range Rovers and the like.
06-17-2010 09:57 AM
InfernoGirl Maggies are cool! Several friends drive them, and love them....
06-17-2010 09:54 AM
PTaylor I'd say no, it will never happen. even if they did "focus on their core money makers" and stopped making Jeeps, at some point they would start back up. I doubt they would ever sell the Jeep name.

That said, I work with several automotive people who've worked for Chrysler, some are Engineers and some are whatever. I call them BS artist.

Anyway, after being around these people, I've come to realize that logic doesn't apply. so what makes sense to you and me is totally opposite to them. Kinda like the bizarro world or something. Think I'm wrong? Just take a look at the Dodge Magnum, what idiot dreamed this thing up? A hemi powered station wagon? when gas prices were going up? the commercial shows some guy loading stuff in the back like it's a truck and then revving the engine.

and they thought that would sell.

I heard that the H3 was nothing more than an Avalanche with a different body. Maybe it was the h2, Maybe it's not true at all, irrelevant anyway.

I like the idea of a four door Jeep. I hate the stock four door Jeep though. When I heard they were coming out with it I was ready to trade mine in. then I saw it and never even test drove it. they've got some cool aftermarket stuff to make it look good but damn, you spend that much money for one, than dump several thousand more into it to make it look.......manly.

I figure I'll wait a few years, get one used and fix it up the way I want it.
