Re: 2011 GC Too Typical?

I think they are competitive for their segment, not to mention the enivitable rebates which are likely to be offered not long into its life. It fits for everything I need. Quiet, comfortable, and a little capable with room for my dogs. Its not my favorite design ever, but when I look across the competition I think its head and shoulders above the rest of the field. Hopefully that will be enough to keep it and other jeeps around for awhile.

I like it, but would paint to match the plastic crap on the wheel wells and the black plastic on the bottom of the front bumper.

See it looks so much better like that. Almost demonish. It's a wolf in sheeps clothing. It just needs someone to help it get undressed.

Brain fart... they should work the Hemi just a tad and call it the 5.9Limited before the release of the srt8.

Re: 2011 GC Too Typical?

Tired of peoples love for the 5.9, By the time the '98 models came out the GC was sooo dated. Yeah it was quick but it was also horribly unreliable and a fuel hog with an appetite for premium. They just slapped it together to keep people interested before the release of the '99.

Who the hell are you? A Prius driver? Have a look on ebay, almost every ZJ on there has close to 200,000 miles. Pretty good testimony if you ask me. I have a 5.2 with well over 300,000. Gas was cheap in 98 and the 5.9 actually got decent mpg.

Everyone knows the 5.9 is still one of the most sough after GC to date. Fast with a 4lo option.

I think you are just begging for a fight here.

Re: 2011 GC Too Typical?

13 or so is not great mileage, my yukon weighs more, makes more power, and gets the same mpgs. Not that I really worry about it, but come on, a 5-6 year old design on its last legs. Thats the one thing I hate about jeep people is they always talk that back in the day crap. Like every new model is heresy and they should stick to building CJs or something.

Re: 2011 GC Too Typical?

imo the ZJ was hideous, so was the WJ. i only bought one because i needed a car quick and it was a good deal. i bought the WK because i fell in love with the design after initially hating it. i love the WK2 and will buy a used one eventually and get the grill painted to match. that photoshoped pic that was posted looks awesome and like nothing else out on the road. i dont really care what the back looks like anyway.
