I was watching top gear BBC the other day and I noticed that the Wrangler is on the uncool side of the cool wall. Just wondering if anybody knows why. I can't find the episode when they put it there.

That's bc over in Britain they are extremely biased on Jeeps. They love their crappy LandRovers instead.

They are anti American everything on that show, yet I still watch it. They talk trash, but occasionally show they like American vehicles with their actions. The best episode that was Jeep related had a Jeep that could walk on water, if I remember correctly.

I can't stop watching the Bugatti veyron episode its mind boggling.... 250+ mph 10 radiators and at full throttle it sucks in as much air as a person does breathing in 3days and at top speed the tires will last 21 minutes but the fuel will only last 12

I like the Bolivia episode. Even though there isn't a Jeep. I think a YJ would have done much better than what they had.

Whats wrong with the old land rover defenders? I think they are pretty cool, wouldn't compare them to a Jeep but still think they are a fairly capabile vehicle.

TopGear is just a bunch of humorous British pricks. Good show, but once something American gets tossed their way, they do everything in their abilities to make it look like junk.

THey did seem very impressed with the Ford GT though...

Love Top Gear! They do seem to enjoy poking fun at American cars, but they ended up loving the three they drove from San Francisco to Utah (Charger, Cadillac and...Corvette?). Jeremy also lists his drive over the Sierra Mountains in a Wrangler to be one of his top most enjoyable trips ever. And he did buy a Ford GT...had to really lobby Ford to be one of the few that got one from the limited overseas imports.

I think they're like boys who tease girls because they secretly like them. ;)

Yeah, Jeremy loved that GT, right up until he finally had to return it because it was a lemon. There were a couple of episodes where they mentioned his problems with it during the news segment.

They are cool. BUT they break a lot and are super expensive to work on.

At least the guys on the UK show know their vehicles... I went to a taping of Top Gear US and could not believe how ignorant the guys hosting the show were. It was cool to meet Buzz Aldrin and talk with him for a few minutes!
