thats what everyone said about the Hummer or Humvee.
It is what you make of it.
You want balls to the wall offroad, make it a crawler.
You want to go to the mall, keep it stock/civilian/base model or whatever you want to call it.
Face it, very few drive a "stock" jeep.
our forefathers of the Jeep would be extremely dissapointed in the hating going on here. They wil die loving Jeep for better or for worse, LJ or TJ, CJ or YJ, commander or Cherokee, etc.
Bottom line is, your WWII Grandaddy's Jeep stories cannot even compare to today's needs. I dont need to explain it cause everyonje already knows there's not 1 military Jeep wrangler in Iraq.
Same for the civilian era, same for the trail era, etc., etc., etc.
I will give you props for having someone in the family who has been around since the Jeep and has a personal experience with them, but I'll be the first to admit that I have never driven a military Jeep, and unless all the haters here have, I would suggest you all go measure your weiners somewhere else and stop hating.
Oh, BTW, my wife is a soccer mom by day,
BUT SHE'LL, OUT CRAWL, OUT CLIMB, OUT TRAIL YOU IN MY JEEP ANY DAY OF THE WEEK!
and if she doesn't, she'll have fun tryin, and THATS WHAT JEEPIN is all about....
