Jeep 2500

Well I am in China right now and my first day in Shanghai one drives right past and I also saw a commander, just thought I would share. It looked awesome but the girlfriend said you can't take one home

I'm actually not a fan. I'm sure I'll be flamed but IMO the only cool thing about the 2500 is that it exists. It's ugly. Sorry! American xj's look a million times better.

Does that mean that the "eco-nut jobs" will attack them now and maybe we can build some more refineries and get back to sensible gas prices???

Yeah.... I know. It's a "pipe-dream"!!!

"Seems like common sense isn't that common anymore"
And by the way.... "alot" is NOT a word!!!!

I think it's ugly, personally. I love the boxy, gas guzzling, non-aerodynamic XJ as it is...maybe with a nice diesel, however...
