Hummer in many ways. They high center way sooner then a 2 door. Other then that they are great. Just razzing the 4 door Jeepers.

LOL you can't razz me, I do like good natured humor though. When I was a new driver I always wanted a Jeep but could never afford one and then I went to work for GM and I was loyal to the company for 30 years. Now that I am enjoying my second childhood I am driving a Jeep !!!!

Cheers !!!!

Oh and by the way, I like the smoother ride of the longer wheelbase, I still have to keep the DW happy as well

Your right they do give a better ride. We drove all GM vehicles back in the day, 1972 to 1985. Then Fords form 85 to to present. With one Jeep and one Corvette in the mix. The Vette is gone, but I may never get rid of the Jeep.

Nonononono never get rid of the Jeep. As far as towing behind the coach and taking me on trails and out where roads fear to go you can't have a better vehicle to do it with.

Most of the time we pull our 05 Grand Cherokee for over 50,000 miles, but we've now bought a 14 Grand Cherokee diesel.

But we also tow our 05 Wrangler Unlimited, depending upon where we're working.

The only stock Jeep on a snow run. I had to put on chains to keep me floating on the top of the snow, 3 feet in spots.

The old fleet. I still have the 44 (needs a full resto), sold the 90 when we got the 05. The 73 before it got tore down for up grades.

Measuring for shocks. It runs a Chevy 350, sm465 and a dana 20 transfer case via Novak adapter. Front axle is a hybrid dana 44 with an Ox locker, rear is a True Hi 9 with an ARB locker.

Oh geeessshhhhhh a whole collection of Jeeps !!!!! If I didn't depend on mine as a daily driver as well as my trail crawler I'd consider doing some lifts and such.

I love PDRJohn's pics in Gillette. Here's my 2013 Rubicon. I grew up in Jeeps in Colo but my DW took her first Jeep trail last year from Ouray to Telluride and loved it.!
