I bought it to use it, been off roading too many times to count! Have not had any major problems yet! about a week ago i got it stuck up to headlights in mud and the thing kept running, true offload vehicle! Always have the top down and doors off.
Is as rugged as it looks. Easily upgradeable, insane off road ability when you need it. Ive pulled toyotas, h3's, and even an EXPEDITION out of the sand. THE POWER IS THERE, just need to know how to use it.
stock tires are a joke, don't take them off road, they blew out first time i was out. ebrake assembly broke, which i kinda need with a 6spd, Where are the stock tow hooks? get undercoating, everything rusts.
