Dont see any benefit to this. Yeah, they threw on an extra axle, for what? still has the crap v6 engine, so its not going to be able to tow anything larger then existing. for 69k, ill get an unlimited with a v8

I seriously have yet to see a Wild Boar product that isn't retarded. I hate to bash a company that I'm sure takes pride in its work and has good customer service, but every time I see someone link to one of their products or show a picture of it, I wonder WTF they were thinking. This is yet another.

Their tops and light bars aren't bad, but all their big, extravagant products are pretty ****ing stupid.

Case in point here.

Yeah, it would suck at tight trails or parking downtown or going anywhere in much of a hurry, but far more room, possibly a bit more payload, and more stability on really steep climbs, all without increasing the breakover angle...I guess that would be good. Really though, I think what it was actually made for is not driving in traffic, but just driving traffic--to their website.

$205 per fill up at today's record low price of 3.15.....and I imagine it doesn't get great mpg.

Silly looking POS. it makes me ask why would you do that. AEV built a stretched 4 door... Wow we really needed something just a little longer.

Anyhow, I do like these guys/ Wild Boar. They make a JK snorkel, grill and top that looks great.
