I would take an N-14 over the isx. I work on both daily and even completely overhaul at last one of each a month.

I find them amusing. I own a diesel pickup truck and have gotten nasty looks and even snide comments at gas stations once. I informed the lady my engine was twice as thermally efficient as the engine in her Prius. She scoffed and left I of course was still pouring fuel oil into the truck....................

I am looking at putting a set of aftermarket rims on the truck, but a lot of the aftermarket rims don't have a weight rating on them. They are 8-lug rims but they do not have a weight limit on them. What's the point of that?

End of the day, I can pull that.

What I don't get is why people care what other people do with their vehicles.

I think you're right about the trends though. They'll pass. That's another thing that makes jeeps cool. They will always be in demand. They've never been "in" or "out". The bro dozers will soon ingulf the entire country and then in a few years, they will be gone lol then, and only then, the tranquility will be restored, you'll be able to drive without being blinded by gay green or purple illegal headlights, you'll be able to rest at night, without worrying about some drunk *** bro driving his spotlessly clean mud virgin of a Chevy through your yard and takin out your neighbors house and street light (happened to me lol)
Fcuk those guys and their gay trucks.
Right? You don't even see that many ricers anymore. At least on the west coast. To me, a Honda Civic with a turbo, built engine, clean paintjob, built suspension, and other various purpose built mods that see the track on the weekends is not a ricer. More of what they call "tuner". The Integra rolling down the street with Motegi wheels, bondo and primer paintjob, taped on fiberglass wing, and fogged headlights is a ricer. But both are dieing out. Much like bro dozers will in a few years.

Not to get all patriotic, but none of those vehicles will have what Jeeps have, the Jeep is an American icon. Hondas and bro dozers didn't help us win wars, get blown up in combat zones, and carry dead and wounded troops to safety. With a history like that, a vehicle that was born to go to war, will always be in demand. That and the only other vehicle you'll ever drive that has the same kind of brotherhood, is a vehicle with only two wheels.

That's why I'm not a diesel mechanic! I drive it into the ground (takes a lot of effort), and then somebody gets to enjoy the fruits of my labor! The mechanics contracted by my company hate the ISX, they're DD fanboys. I'm also a Detroit Diesel fanboy too though, mainly because they give me a good laugh when a Freightliner driver tries to drag race me up a hill. "Where did he go? I don't know! It is a mystery."

They don't bother me at all. A lifted truck that never will see mud, is the same as someone building an Evo that will never go to an auto cross or drag strip.

True that! Still seeing a lot of ricers around here. But holy crap if I could count the jeeps I see daily... Around ft Campbell and clarksville I've gotta leave my arm out the window so I don't miss a wave.

Aint that the truth! The newer model jeeps have to be one of the most common vehicles on the road. Sure camrys or civics may be more common, but they blend in to the traffic whereas a jeep stands out

Edit: most common in my neck of the woods, okay more like the burbs, but still.

^This. All you members of the jury throwing out judgements are doing the exact same thing the hummer and yota owners say about jeepers. I see more built jeeps with a spotless undercarriage than I do ones that are purpose built and used as such. So who's stupider, the guy with a $70,000 truck that doesn't serve a purpose? Or the guy that keeps throwing $$$ at a pos jeep and doesn't leave the pavement?....sounds like a draw to me. So we're no better than the bro-trucks....or the ricers.....or the guy with a harley in his garage that never rides it. It's a hobby, an interest, a personal preference and often a persons interests are dictated by what they can afford. Just so happens they chose a 10,000 lb truck that costs as much as 10 of my Jeeps to modify, good for them. Is that what it was made for? No. But semi rig's weren't made for track racing and a harley wasn't made to go 200mph. Yet people build them for that purpose.

So how bout everyone just relax and let them worry about their choice and we'll focus on throwing money down the crapper with our jeeps, m'kay? .

I have found that Kottonmouth Kings are annoying to hear, and their fans annoying to be around. They talk about weed like that foreskin crusader on here from a while back would talk about foreskin.
