Spider-One is a jewel in the rough
Re: Omfg

A lot of people think Land Rover is the ultimate in terms off-road capabilities. I'm sure the majority will think this WK2 is amazing off-road and for the most part it'll be fine. Most people just want something that can handle a bit of mud/sand/snow while they cruise out to the cottage with satellite TV, running water and in-door plumbing, lol. Hopefully we see the aftermarket come into this a bit but with the lack of support for the WK I wouldn't hold my breath, especially for those with the air lift system.

The only way I'd consider a WK2 is with the SRT8, but I just got a new vehicle so it'll be a while before I'm back on the market. Although or my g/f who now drives the WK it would probably be a great upgrade with some decent tires.

Both vehilces you bring up are exaxtly what I am talking about. If you claim offroad you better deliver.
Neither the Compass or the Patriot delivered,
Both are gone!
Jeep reputation was hurt.
And I guess the slow sales and the ending of the Commanders' life was also due to the lack of off road capability and not the fact that much like the compass/patriot/caliber, it was the answer to a question that no one has asked.

Like I said, the off road group is a very small group and if I was Jeep, I wouldn't spend the time and money on making sure that all of the Jeep SUVs can go over big ass rocks if that means that I would give up on road manners that would turn off more people that it would turn on.

Scottina06-- Yes I can see the extra width, but Im sure having the lower bumper on also helps make it look larger.

haha. At least you own it as opposed to gettin all huffy puffy about it. It's true though, I remember reading about JDM seats bein more narrow fitting than the USDM seats.

No, I bought a new 97 Wrangler, an 06 GCSRT8 and now an 08 Laredo. So, no, definately not a first time owner.

Re: Omfg

Is it so bad to have some extra off-road capability...? When I lived in Indy or Virginia, my Jeep made it thru any condition on the road or some homemade side roads. Granted, none of it was true off-road, but my GC made it thru everything without a care. I liked the ability to do whatever I want. If my next GC comes with some extra off road, I'll take it for a few dollars more....EVEN if I don't truly need it. It's a comfort factor. To me, it's like when I go hiking; I bring extra water although it weighs more, but I never get thirsty. Load my ride up!!!
