This iconic vehicle is the most fun you can have driving under 20mph. The design will never get old and the amount of bad weather confidence you gain by getting behind the wheel of this beast is unmatched. The deeper the snow the more I wanted to go out. I think it drives better in the deep stuff than on a clear road. That is also the problem. It is incredibly loud at highway speed, the hood will lift up and slam down in the wind, and it needs constant input to keep in a straight line. This is the least practical vehicle on the road but one you simply have to own at some point in your life. Left me stranded at 2500 miles due to faulty fuel gauge, took 11 days to fix. No confidence in brand
The 4x4 paired with traction control, visibility, ground clearance, all weather tires (even without the upgraded all terrain tires), sirius radio and upgraded stereo
People don't mention this stuff but... Front seats don't stay pushed forward when entering the back even on a slight incline, doors don't hold open and just close on you. It's not a practical vehicle but these little things can't be blamed in it being "rugged"
