As far as the WK2 - exactly my point - the GC didn't start out being "too nice" to take off road. (though I guess that's debatable if one did an analysis of what it cost vs cost of living from say 15 years ago) Like you said though, the newest model went through the Rubicon/Moab journeys.
I suppose I should point out it wasn't my intention to suggest that the KL was the "game changer" when it comes to Jeep's identity crisis - if that's what this can be called. I was only saying that as they introduce more of these types of vehicles, Jeep is mutating into something less appealing to many of its core supporters. At least as far as "new arrivals" are concerned.
BTW - glad I jumped in on this thread.
