Combination of things: 90 in the Raptor feels smoother than my previous F150 did at any speed. The interior is comfy and well featured. The stock exhaust sounds great while not being obnoxious. You get the ground clearance of a lifted truck without really looking like a brolifted brotruck. Good offroad capability for a factory vehicle. Drives more like a car than most trucks I've driven, was easy for the wife to handle.
Sorry, the Raptor is a factory brotruck.


Deal with it.

Brodogs cant afford a raptor, only their fathers and grandfathers can.

Had some experience with the rubicon tires in snow, had some issues on the hills in 2wd. I'm still not sure when to put it into 4WD. Haven't had enough snow to put it in 4wd...

IIRC, Jeep recommends no higher than 50mph for 4H and 25mph for 4L. 4H can be engaged at speed while 4L you must be stopped. If there's complete snow cover and you have traction issues, put it in 4H. If its a mix of pavement and snow/ice, leave it in 2H. 4L is only for when you're stuck (or low speed offroad stuff, of course)

It'll break.
Jeep themselves called it "unfit for human consumption."

The intended brotato market in my area is lifted F250's and RAM 2500's with giant brush guards. They can keep them.

a Commander is bigger than a GC. If you need a third row, the new Durango is basically the Grand Cherokee XL (to use GM parlance)

A friend has one. His 5'02" wife drives it. It'll pass anything but a gas station. And it prefers 93oct. At 13mpg city, that's gonna hurt.

we don't need a.third.row really. it's actually pretty disappointing looking at these midsize suvs with third rows. the third row is pretty useless, and they squish the back seat up to fit it in.

here's a long boring vid of the white one in the snow a couple of years ago. One day i'll edit it down to highlights. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sgz_46ehm68
What kind of power are they putting down with the tunes/bolts?

There's a 5.9 for sale up here for $3200, and although I don't have anywhere near that much, it's got me interested in them. I wanted a 5.9 Dakota for years, but I'd rather have a 5.9 ZJ.

If I save enough money I'd like to buy one and take the doors off. Doorless jeeps are almost like motorcycles!

Not sure about the power levels, but a friend of mine got one of these from his sister in exchange for painting her house, and the damn thing has been almost bulletproof. It finally started having issues with the transmission not wanting to shift out of 2nd, but with 185k miles on it, that's been the only thing outside of regular maintenance.

something around $15k-$18k. she'd like something bigger for our growing family, and i'd like her to have something cheaper maintenance wise than her current G35 sedan.

she really likes the 08 pathfinder we test drove, but is looking at some other options that are out there.

I'll look for them again in a few months, here's to hoping one's floating around then.

Thanks, it's been odd going back to driving a jeep in the mixed snow conditions from RWD or AWD cars. Especially when partially pavement and partial snow.

the good guys at Mach V swapped a set of takeoff '13 Rubi wheels/tires on for me for the afternoon to see if tires are causing my right pull issue on the Savegre/MTR combo (basically to rule out the suspension or alignment as culprits).

3.5" lift with 32's.

Not a fan of the wheels, but man that tread pattern looks mean.
