What I want to see is the video of the mall rats who saw that video and took their
compass out into the sand without knowing precisely how to drive it.
You know ever new model of Jeep since I've been around has it's haters. Look at the YJ. There are still people who hate it. People hated the TJ, people hated the KJ, I'm sure people are hating on the JK already.
There are two kinds of Jeeps in the brand - those that people love and think signify the Jeep history and those that people hate and think just ruin the heritage. Funny thing is they're often opposite sides of the same models.
I wonder, did people hate the CJ when it came out, saying it was too soft and civilian? What about 2WD XJs and MJs? What about this:
baby (well except the hood ornament) and wholly part of the Jeep heritage, just as the YJ, KJ and one day the Compass.
Plus, you know that someday someone is going to put a "real" driveline in it, jack it up on 38s just to have something different. Not that you can't do that with your wife's Saturn either.
