First off, whats with all the non-Wrangler hate? Seriously? In stock forum, other jeeps can be more capable than a wrangler. Once you start modding you can't compare models.
Since its no longer a stock Jeep. You can upgrade what ever you want on any model with enough money.
Also, If your jeep is a DD, some of us want to be able to haul more than a gas can, 2 people and a dog in our jeeps. Also helps to be able to tow more than 2000 pounds.
Back on topic: People have a ridiculous idea of what their 4x4s can do. Its a 4x4, not a boat. Survivors??
