If thats what you like though its okay.
I dont disagree with you that the JKs can be a little foo-foo , but my experience with the new pentastar engine was awesome .

Sarcasm? I feel like it would have advantages and disadvantages.

I agree that the JK was not created to target the hardcore offroad market, but they can be made into a very capable vehicle. Some people would say that a factory TJ is not the most capable vehicle in stock form. Yes its better then others, but lets face it if it were all that from the factory, then why do we spend so much time and money to mod a TJ. But it is amazing what you can make a TJ do with money and mods. The same is true for the JK. The TJ 4.0 is a very good engine. But lets face it if it were that great, no one would be doing builds about replacing it with something that provided more power and torque. Yes they will last a very long time with just a little care. The Ford is a very nice truck. I would love to have one, but I am not going to spend that much money on a truck. Plus I dont feel that it could handle the same situations that a Jeep could handle. I think it would be great in the open desert. I think you could almost run it wide open. I dont think it could handle the rocks and such. It would make a good tow rig. But if I really wanted one, I would be in some truck forum and not in the Jeep forum Ok enough with this junk.

Kate,

So you want to get felt up by someone in uniform. Hmmmm We need to get you out more. LOL Thats almost like us messing with one of the guys here at work. We tell him that he is the only person that we know that looks for a doctor by the size of his hands.

Now this is a good plan.
