I tend to limit myself to wranglers only due to the fact that most Liberty and Grand Cherokee owners would sooner flip you the bird then wave back. Cherokees themselves are a different animal. The modded ones always wave and I've always waved to them.
Like I said before I'll wave to the JKs, but I'm not gonna feel good about it. Something about that 4 door just doesn't seem like a Wrangler to me. I couldn't quite place it but people are right, It looks kinda like an H3.
I know many of you responded with "Hey, it's still a Jeep" I'm not gonna sugar coat it, I understand that DM is a company and they want to expand on their customer base, however, blindly accecpting all changes they make is not the way to go either. If it ain't broke don't fix it. The TJ is definetly not broke.
Im not trying to pass judgement on people's tastes and what not, but there are certain things that make a Jeep Wrangler unique. One of them is not providing automatic door locks or power windows.
Another thing is ride comfort. I didn't buy my Wrangler for a luxerously smooth ride, I bought it for off roading. Seriously, if you want a cushier SUV then get a Grand Cherokee or Liberty or Patriot. I just don't see the need for DC to "soften" up the Wrangler image with a "family friendly" 4 door wrangler. It's a friggin off- road rugged machine, sell it as such!
I'm not wild about the 2 door Rubi, but I can deal with it. A lot of the changes to it are solid and with a few mods I can definetly see them being badass offroad machines.
