Good luck navigating a Hummer through that. Even a ZJ is a little big for a lot of trails.

The difference: Go wheel a SFA Jeep for a year, and follow it everywhere with an IFS, and see who has more broken parts. 1 trip doesn't tell much of a story.
Ahahaha this is so true! Used to be a nissan owner, then wokeup and realized jeeps rule, so drove the wheels of the nissan til it got rodknock. Lol

Hahaha! I always called them Super Ugly Vehicles. Hahaha! Stupid works too. I'm not saying i'd buy one personally, but maybe 20 years from now when they're cheap, I may pick one up. I bet I can find a way to modify it...

If I tried to do that with my Pathfinder, I'd still have the damn thing. I have to hand it to the 3 liter, it doesn't like to stop working.

And I mean, again, bendy axle suspensions can be lifted. It's a physical possibility. There just hasn't been a lot of demand for lift kits for Jeep indy axles. If you want the new Cherokee to have an aftermarket, you'll have to buy it and express interest to the manufacturers of such stuff.

I mean it's not like it's any less straightforward than lifting a ZJ the same amount. Above 3", you have to start replacing control arms, pitman arms, driveshafts, et cetera.

You know you drive a ZJ when you think your 20 year old Grand Cherokee will still be better than the brand new Cherokee

It's a pulley. But you know you drive a zj when you use a crowbar to tighten the belt lol. Also when a pulleys bad you just shrug it off

When the trail scout says the jku's will have problems with the tight corners and you laugh because you have a shorter wheelbase.
