Let me know if you ever go to Uwharie and you'd like to have a trail mate. It's 1hr20mins from you. Killer trails and if you run Dickey Bell you get a Jeep badge of honor.Not Uwharrie mud yet, local Winston Mud, I'm trying to find somewhere I can go for a quick spin after work. This is a result of my exploration in and around town.
I'll be making plans on going soon hopefully. I'll probably send you and a few other local Jeepers an invite.Let me know if you ever go to Uwharie and you'd like to have a trail mate. It's 1hr20mins from you. Killer trails and if you run Dickey Bell you get a Jeep badge of honor.
We're on our 4th Land Rover product, no issues with any of them, and they are more capable than ever - even in luxury platforms they put out....I simply listed the Mercedes in reply to the guy citing regulations for why Jeep can't go bigger or more powerful. If Land Rover stays true to the Defender I'm not sure Jeep can beat it. They haven't lost integrity all of the new rovers are incredible machines
"oters"!!actually the real question should be what are oters going to do to try and catch up with Jeep.
Mine will see very little offroading. I'll soft-road it a little on the family hunting ground when I go deer hunting, but otherwise it will be 99% on-road. But it's the only (affordable) vehicle out there that can seat 4, go topoff/door off, can also do well in the snow here in Chicagoland, and most importantly has a fun character unlike all the boring stuff out there. OTOH, I also won't be jacking it way up and throwing on monster tires to try and LOOK like I go offroad a ton either.It is odd that some Jeeps see no off road use at all. I talk with a guy that works near me pretty often. He has a lifted 2 door JK with big tires and some other minor upgrades. When I asked him if he took it off road I got a look like - are you crazy? Jeeps are everywhere here too. I have not ever brought it up again. I had my brand new 4Runner off road days after I purchased it.
Always more beer...I am a geologist and everytime I see a dirt road particularily one maybe in the desert that just extends until it is lost inthe desert. I always have to fight the urge to "see where it goes" If i don't win that fight I won't get work done. Still the draw to go see is so strong. and sometimes I just can't help it Adios boys & girls, going to see what onthe other side. If i am not back in 3 days send a rescue or more beer!
Defenders are not incredible machines. They are actually unreliable POSes. The current defender being built wouldn't get through most obstacles a bone stock wrangler can walk through, and neither can the G wagon. Modified, again, they are not even close. Dollar for dollar, you can have nearly 3 well built wranglers for the price of a G wagon, and a rubicon with the best parts you can find for the price of a stock defender.I simply listed the Mercedes in reply to the guy citing regulations for why Jeep can't go bigger or more powerful.
