I think there are other rigs that's are capable with the right stuff. Mostly older pickups and fullsize SUV. My truck went up a trail behind my house better than my jeep did stock. The truck wouldn't compare now though.

Xterras are nice to look at if you ask me. I wouldn't rather have an fj cruiser if I wanted a modern 4x4 though. There is a guy around here who has a nicely set up one and seems to use it well.

I laugh at their ignorance while I out wheel them in a rig that cost a fraction of their xterra's.

No doubt there are other 4x4's out there that have their benefits but Im a bit biased with Jeeps. Have been ever seen last week when I wheeled with an alpha h3 that couldnt keep up. Mostly driver error but still. Cherokee power.

I am short but not insecure and I don't lash out at anyone. I walk away from conflict so I don't have to get my *** beat by huge people. Also I hate fighting. It solves nothing.

Ha. Hummers are jokes. I outwheeled an h3 in my Subaru outback. Albeit I was only with one cause that happened to be the only person who could pull me out of a ditch at 4 am... but I still beat him getting back out of the area.

Haha. This one even had front and rear lockers. The driver couldnt even figure out what button on the dash to press to engage them. Either way we talked him into selling it to buy a Jeep. I told him you could sell that h3 and buy 30 cherokees.

Oh, I joke and bust balls, but I am by no means a Jeep snob. I dig ALL flavors of rigs. I like xterra's and FJ's. Xterra's are expensive to modify though. . . Not to mention the inital cost of the vehicle. I just don't get dumping that much money into something you're wheeling. At the same time you wouldn't find me buying a new JK and wheeling it either. That's the reason my buddy with the Xterra and bis buddy's don't do anything fun and exciting when "wheeling" . . . They are terrified to get a scratch on their pretty DD's, because they're still making huge payments, which I completely understand.

This kinda reminds me of this guy I know with his wk........ hahaha just messing.

For me, if it has wheels, I can ride or drive it, and it is not just a boring blob of a car, then it interests me. I love 4x4 most though.

I respect anyone who brings their vehicle offroad and at least attempts to see what they can do. At the beginning of the day wheelin with the hummer, the owner had never wheeled it and asked to ride along with me. I told him you have to at least try some trails. He complained and whined for a good hour or two, but after that we couldnt keep him from the mud. I like the look of the fj's, I was asked to install a lift kit on one. I welcome anyone to wheel with me, just dont be hating on the jeeps and afraid to drive your own 4x4.

What about mudding in one cadillac and rock crawling in another? I also drove it off a cliff but we can't count that as wheeling can we?

Well... the missing went a lot better than expected. I had to get that Christmas trash to the burn pit somehow! And the other ride... well it sure was bumpy.
