here is my honest advice to you. if you like to get stranded all the time and constanly look for upgrades and spend all your money on repairs then buy a jeep. otherwise stay away from them while you still have a chance.

I'm not necesarily going for a Jeep.. this one had caught my eye and I wanted more info on Jeeps... Any idea's or advice is welcome :)

Here's what I'm lookin for... something that's not gonna be a gas guzzler, can carry all my tools for work yet still able to hold a couple people including a kid, something I can learn on... basically my learning truck. I have 4x4'd and am still learning but I am also wanting to learn more about how to fix them as they break... something I can camp in when it's cold... I love the mud.. and want to learn trails... hmmm so much to do and learn...

yap. they are not even in the same class as any other truck. jeeps and all the light duty domestic shit are really poorly build.

Some like toys some like Jeeps.Tmax likes toys if you havent figured it out.I don't.You need to take all the info you can gather and then make up your own mind in the end.They all have ups and downs in different scenarios.

Thanks, I agree that's why I'm asking for more people's opinions... I happen to not really prefer any type of vehicle... all have good and "crappy" parts to them... I just want to find one that better suits my lifestyle including the FUN :)

hey dude i like things that are well desinged and build. dont even own a toyota. the only down fall to a toyota is that many of them are driven to the ground and still kiking so people think thats what a toy is. have had the all and like i said they dont compare man. i like to go in and out of the bush withoug worring about shit breaking or carry every spare part possible.

full size broncos, blazers they all have the room, 4runners are smaller but are great as well. Being able to sleep in your ride is a big bonus

I'm with t-max tho on the toy thing, i've seen so many get beaten and asbused and just keep on going

From my experiences with Jeeps:
1. Gas guzzler? Yes, they are about as aerodynamic as a loaf of bread.
2. Carry tools and People? You can carry 3 people and a backpack. That's it. Tops, 4 people and a CD case. This is comfortably. My mom used to drive my brother and I in her Jeep from Prince George to Prince Rupert with all our bags etc. Let me say we were not happy kids on those trips.
3. Camping in? Well I tried to sleep in mine, drunk, and I'm sure most people will agree that when you're drunk you can sleep anywhere... not so much in a Jeep. Tried to sleep in it many other times to no avail. I'd rather sleep under it.

This being said; for 4x4ing, they are hella fun. Nimble, torquey, and have a turning radius to die for (trust me, you'll learn to appreciate it!). They just don't belong on a paved road.

[stupid] I didn't buy mine for traveling... Well put.. as for being poorly built, I've beat the crap outta mine for a year, and just now broke my driveshaft.. the lower end of my motor has been goin for about 7 months and that straight 6 just keep going.. My suspension is new, and other than that, easy to work on.. Trust me Sas, if I could afford a MOG, I'de have one, but I wouldn't trade this jeep for anything, trailing is a freakin blast [36] [36] [36]

Back to the mog room with ya mog boy...............


anything you buy is going to have to be purpose built for the type of wheeling you intend on doing and more often than not once you have built it to the way you want it and have wheeled it for awhile if the wheeling bug bites you your going to want to build it some more cause there are bigger and better trails out there. i think anybody on here would agree. I don't think there is anything rite out the box thats turn key.............













other than a jeep....................:D [22]

jim on the serious side you have to own a toyota to know what i'm talking about. i can kill a jeep in less than a min. you cannot kill a toy that fast. my sugestion was for a lady with a kid since she needs a vehicle that dont break all the time. thats all. some peole enjoy working on their vehicle and love it just for that.

sounds like you need a runner. i agree with tmax, toys are hard to kill. my 98 serves me well as a mall crawler, kid hauler, trail baller, stuff it to the rim with 2 adults n THREE kids to go camping truck. sleeps well in the back...and stock is excellent in the trail. easily upgradeable with numoerous parts floating around the net.

get yourself a 4banger 4door 2nd gen runner (90-95) n you'll be laughin. or if you dont mind 2 doors, go for a 1st gen. 84-89. or be cool like me and get one with a FACTORY LOCKER'D 3rd gen. 96-00. the 01-02's didnt come with lockers
