How long will it take?

I don't know. How long did it take for the current unlimited to appear in a rap video?

It has not been, that is my point. Watch my friend and see how long it will take for these new jeeps to go where no jeep has gone before.

Oh, the horror.

I have read that N.Y. drug dealers became quite fond of wearing plastic mountaineering boots. I guess we should all stop climbing mountains now.

There is a guy two blocks away from me with a YJ on maybe 25 inch tires chromed out and with a neon kit.

Man that YJ was such a horrible design decision by Jeep.

The point is that you don't blame the Jeep for people with that kind of taste. You blame the person.

Exactly, you blame the person. I just think the styling of the new JK (since H3-like) will give rise to more typical lame mods like big rims, lowering, etc.

I should of never started this thread, so I apologize. It is not going in the direction I wanted. I will not reply any longer.

That's because you think the JK looks like an H3.

Not everyone agrees.

It seems like the "intent" of your thread was to suggest that the JK looks like an H3 and will somehow cheapen the brand if its associated with Rap music.

NWA and Biggie were rapping about Jeeps in 1989 and we've been doin just fine.

Everyone has to stop thinking that a new design is going to ruin their Jeep experience or somehow turn out the masses to buy Jeeps and bling them out. It's not going to happen any more than it already does. Those that love offroading will still be in the mud and on the rocks and those that don't will still be on the street.

If you don't think it looks like a H3 you probably need your eyes checked . Not much doubt in my mind that if the JK had hit the streets sooner, the story would have been that the H3 copied the JK. But we know that's isn't the case now.

The JK looks like a slightly bigger and sleeker TJ. The 4-door JK looks liike a slightly bigger and sleeker Unlimited with extra doors.

The H3 looks like a ripoff of a TJ with gigantic massive fenders, a poor imitation of the Jeep grille, and the underbelly of a cheap SUV.

I've never been a big fan of the Unlimiteds and I'm not the biggest fan of the 4-door, but all comparisons to a H3 will stop once they get on the trails.
