  1. They had the capability, they made it better, stronger, faster...

    Yeah that's not entirely my scenario, I drive clay packed dirt roads regularly in the north east US. Nothing you wouldn't drive on with say my current VW GTI, you just obviously drive differently. Mainly talking about a 20,000 acre are and I'll be able to do roads I couldn't do before but...
  2. Best model for snow.

    Oh oh I want to preach about tires. There are almost no reasons not to swap out tires for the winter if you're in a place with a lot of winter weather. Think about it this way, your tires have a lifespan that's directly related to wear so, you're going to buy those tires eventually anyways...
  3. Official Reveal: Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 V8 Hemi

    I don't understand how you can compete with the likes of the Raptor at 90k+
  4. Why did you choose a Gladiator?

    I forget what stupid auto-mag site said it, it might've actually been Consumer Reports but what it comes down to is it's a damn fucking cool truck in the middle of lack-luster options at the same price point. There's no truck that offers the complete "fun" package at this price point. I...
  5. Official Reveal: Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 V8 Hemi

    Wait, what? You're positing a 110% markup?
  6. They had the capability, they made it better, stronger, faster...

    I do like his switches! As to the subject at hand.. frankly it would seem even a base non-s out the door would be good enough for my "light work truck" duties so really it all comes down to what kind of toy I want. Honestly as this thread has evolved it's made me think about doing just that...
  7. They had the capability, they made it better, stronger, faster...

    Evidence seems to indicate otherwise.
  8. I got surprised with a Launch Edition!

    I would challenge that. A '95 Nissan Pathfinder can get you in plenty of trouble even at 45mph offroad when you're 16 learning how to drive. Don't ask me, ask the deer!
  9. I got surprised with a Launch Edition!

    Yeah but at the same time by the time I was 24 I already found out full well what happens when you toss the back end of your Mustang out on a curve @ 70mph in light rain. Anything you didn't know at 16 at driving of that magnitude, physics has already taught you all the lessons you'll need for...
  10. I got surprised with a Launch Edition!

    Me too! Forget everything I said about being careful, you probably have a good idea how to drive at this point in your life lol.
  11. What’s your Average MPG?

    So, how exactly are you driving this thing? Are you like, pretending the brake is cancer and timing all your accelerations accordingly? Is this a diesel? 26mpg average over 300 miles which is what you appear to be advertising here is no small feat.
  12. How capable is a bone stock rubicon?

    But where is that not true? I have a close family friend who worked at Mercedes high enough that he got to do one of their track days and he made the instructor pull over and let him out. The right driver can make that ISTR factor be at 11 in any car :D
  13. Edmonds best midsize truck ranking

    Frankly I think this hits the nail on the head. I've always loved the El Camino and I view the Ridgeline as an El Camino-type rather than a truck. If they just changed the platform slightly and marketed it that way, similar to say a Subaru Outback-style vehicle I think that would really nail...
  14. How capable is a bone stock rubicon?

    This is kind of exactly my point. My first car ever was an '87 Honda Accord that I took "off-road" for 3 years and only had to replace exhaust parts in the capacity that literally 99.9% of people who "off-road" call "off-road." If you want to go 100 mph on those roads or if you want to start...
  15. I got surprised with a Launch Edition!

    Did not mean for that to turn into a speech. I guess you experience things and you only see things through that lens from now on. Sorry bout that!
  16. I got surprised with a Launch Edition!

    Haha, grats. Careful man, if I had this thing I'd have wrecked it and hurt people at your age! Anyone here over 30 probably has friends who died cause of stupid motor stuff. I look at 17-26 as me being lucky rather than good. Fuck. I really am a dad. Have fun with this amazing piece of toy.
  17. How capable is a bone stock rubicon?

    Most people who "off-road" deal with something like clay packed roads of various ages and quality. I have 10s of thousands of miles in this "off-road" capacity. You can drive "off-road" in this capacity in a damn Toyota Camry for its entire life and only have to worry about replacing exhaust...
  18. How hard is it offroading in a manual transmission?

    Off-roading is something you do for fun. Do whatever you think you'll have the most fun with. I wouldn't pay much attention to how comfortable you are with a stick. I went from beaters never driving a stick to my first new car being stick with a hydraulic (aka expensive) clutch. A few thousand...
  19. They had the capability, they made it better, stronger, faster...

    Holy shit. WTF? Your switches are cool even though they're not factory. Stop being insecure about your switches. Factory switches probably better long-term but you have a talking point when you show off your car, you're more intimately acquainted with it and most of all you're happy with it. No...
  20. They had the capability, they made it better, stronger, faster...

    At least your dogs are sturdy. I have to drive like a disabled bus van when he's in the car. Turns out Border Collies are 97%fur, 1% bone, 1% muscle (and 1% nuclear fission).
