Great for city drives as well as long
distance drives. I drove mine from NC
to GA to FL then back to NC during
period i had it. Its comfortable
considering it has bigger tires and you
cant expect performance with a vehicle
with aerodynamics of a brick.
Offroad: if it be going camping or the
beach, you cant beat it. Shift on the
fly 4wd hi or stop and shift 4Low for
rocks or slippery terrain. I went
places with my jeep that i wouldnt have
tried with any other SUV.
the improved soft top is easier to
remove and put back up. it still
requires you to work from the front to
back whether you take it on/off. dual
air bag is good, i never tested it
4 wheel disc brakes (now available on
the 2003s i heard)
get the thicker softtop they have
available or get the hard top it wont
be so noisey.
