My jeep is used for pulling heavy loads, hunting, fishing, scuba diving, trapping, and fun. My friends always comment on how jeep should use me in their commercials. I find that it is extremely nimble off road, and has great power and handling on the highway (even when pulling a load). Bottom line is that it`s reliable and practical. It carries a large canoe well with it`s sqaure racks and it`s size is just right. I went on a 10,000 km trip across canada and it was loaded to the max. It drove like a charm, both on and off the road. From anyone I know with a jeep, mine has many years left. Hopefully the jeep will be brought back by the time I need to replace this one.
the fact that the rear end does not stick out from the rear tired too far (better for approaching sttep angles so it won`t scape). Very functional rack unlike other SUV`s I`ve tried to put my canoe on. Power is also good.
Rear passenger comfort is somewaht tight, but I wouldn`t change anything except to put head rests on the rear seats if this allows them to still fold down. Also needs cupholders.
