I'm with you Rush, the Jeep Gods are on target here,
And this mock-up looks mean!!!
How about all you Hummer infatuated freaks think about comparing it to an 80s Cherokee, you know the ones that people actually wheel? I've seen a lot of XJ drivers chopping their hard top and dumping the doors to improve on the trail visibility and let a little sun in. And I must admit with my CJ5 packed like a gypsy wagon to fit me, the lady and a 2yo in it for a 4-day of wheelin' the extra space makes me jealous.
I like to think of it as a return to a trail worthy Cherokee since the Grand has bloated and gone way too soccer-mom.
Besides, after my wife's done getting groceries in her new JK for a couple of years I hope to make it mine and make it as mean as this mock up with a few quick mods - just in time for me to take the wife and kidS on the trail together.
Besides, like any Jeep, its about the Driver's skill and the mods, none of us who wheel for real wheel stock.
