YES! Exactly...

Well put. I WISH people would understand this! I guess many assume that offroading isn't a family sport. Me, I want my wife and son to be able to travel along, and have room for some bags too. I DRIVE my Jeep, so I need that space for luggage. I for one have been looking forward to the new Unlimited for JUST THIS REASON. I think you are ABSOLUTELY right that the aftermarket will handle any shortcomings this thing has.

And I ain't even gonna get into how formidable the package will (may) be if they ever get a chance to slap a CRD in it!

This thing, when equipped right, will be able to go 99% of the places a SWB Wrangler can go, AND a good bit of places that the SWB Wrangler CAN'T go. All this, and COMFORTABLY accomodating 4 or 5 AND their stuff.

No, I am NOT trying to say that the JK unlimited is the BEST JEEP EVER, but it is for many with a family, who love offroading, the TOTAL PACKAGE.

Sure, some may 'get groceries' with it, but please believe this thing is gonna be NO SLOUCH offroad.

I drive a TJ every day, and I do think it will go down as a true legend in the Jeep lineup. I love mine, and when I trade for the JK, I will miss the TJ. I will miss the 4.0 (unless CRD ) but good gawd this is far from the end of the world here.

Something that can go through the rubicon stock is good enough for me.

If it won't budge, get a bigger hammer, if it breaks in the process it needed to be fixed anyway.

6" + (37" - 32")/2 + 72.3" = 80.8" = 6'9" = 205cm

I saw my first JK today. I must admit that it looks better in person. Of course, I did not have my camera. I liked the gauges, but the seats were not comfortable.

It reminds me of the MB G Wagon. Prefect for all of you Soccer Moms out there. I think Jeep is about to lose some Market Share.

really, you thought the seats weren't as comfortable? did you adjust the height of it unlike you can't in the tj now? after i did so that it would sit more like my cj does (up higher), i thought it was actually more comfortable. but hey, to each his own

as far as market shares go, i heard the same kind of rehtoric back when the tj was introduced. funny how some things never change

Most popular 4x4s around the world are Defenders, Patrols, G-wagens, Land Cruisers (they still make them with SFA outside of U.S). Jeep is a very, very nice brand, and the new JK is great, but not that special as you make it sound.



P.S. Mmm.. G-wagen..
I've driven the G-wagon. We have em in the Canadian Forces. They're ok, little tippy, didn't feel as good as my old '99 Cherokee. Can't wait for a JK. Sorry, Jeeps rule!
