Not trying to troll, I'm just curious. I dig the look of the mods you've done.
I know its crazy right? To be honest I have not really liked the Jeep for a while and figured maybe lifting it and adding wheels/tires would help me find it more appealing. It did a little bit but not enough to feel like I want to keep it for 2 more years.
My biggest issue with it is the power train. This 5 speed is the worse automatic Ive ever owned. The gearing is not set up well with the power/torque output of the engine and the gearing so its constantly in between gears. It just cant decide what gear it needs to be in. I know I should have purchased the V8 and that probably would have fixed that but I didnt. The steering is also very numb and makes it pretty boring to drive.
We already have another SUV in the family, an Audi Q7 so I dont really need another SUV. Finally my last car was an M5 so you can image the difference in the driving experience.
The only reason for me to keep it is that I ski and am up on the mountain every week and its a pain in the ass trading cars with my wife whenever I want to hit the slopes (this is the main reason I made the purchase to begin with). I figured I can spend a few grand on an old Toyota Land Cruiser or 4-Runner for my winter rig and get back into a more fun DD.
Sorry for the long winded answer.
