Great For Off Road, Fuel Economy Could Be Better — Not built for hwy acceleration rather for torque for off road where is shines. All time AWD with lockable dif hi/lo for off road. Very smooth comfortable ride because of the leather interior and heated seats. Fun in the snow and mud.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Unique, Sure-footed Like A Goat, Refined Enough For The Queen. — Bought this truck years ago and have loved it ever since. She's not the fastest, doesn't handle like a BMW but you want something that can get you around in any weather, this truck can do it. I've taken it into the back country (we're not talking about gravel roads here) and she's sure footed like a goat yet turn around and get back on the tarmac and she becomes a refined ride again. Nothing looks like her either. I've had more folks come up asking about her than any other vehicle I've owned.

An Almost Perfect Vehicle — This vehicle has everything an off road vehicle should. Three locking differentials means it never gets stuck. It is lacking in build quality and often needs expensive foreign parts but the tradeoff is worth the expense. It's design is unique and refreshing in a world of cookie cutter vehicles. And the interior is reminiscent of a luxury vehicle with power everything leather seats and wood grain accents. I average thirteen miles per gallon which is expect from a full time four wheel drive vehicle with heavy steel body and frame on two fixed axles. The car is incredibly fun making up for the high cost of ownership.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Initial Thoughts-post Purchase — I just got this vehicle, so i don't have to much to say...the thing is built with the intent of off-road with a bit of luxury...i do like the concept. as far as performance..don't expect it to be a hot rod lol but if you want to go everywhere and be comfortable you got the right vehicle

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Remember That Adam Sandler Song? — Odd that it never seems to break down in the Serengeti or the Amazon--but somehow breaks down in an Arizona monsoon...and a hot Arizona day would make it impossible to open the sunroof!
