It's really quiet, smooth ride, has every option available and can do virtually everything I need. I haven't needed to do any rock climbing though.
I'm betting it will climb rocks with the best of them. In fact - If I had the $ - and Bonita had couple 100 more horses - I would probably have one too. I agree with on that one.

As a practical matter for us - Annie circles car daily looking for dings or scratches. She would be - and I would too - a nervous wreck off road worrying about scratching and banging her baby.

I have a Jeep with 400K on it (built in the states so in miles) and it's scratched all over like a well used Jeep should be. A friend has a similar (much newer Jeep) and he always marvels at the scratches on mine. The difference is mine takes me fishing in some pretty well off the road places. I have no qualms about driving three miles up a trail everyone else walks (no knees remember) to get to nice trout.

I mentioned to my buddy that the only off road his Jeep sees is the gravel driveway at his cottage. He would be just as well served with a Yarrow or however its spelt.

Now if you want to get a 1/4 mile away in a heck of a hurry try one of these. https://www.youtube.com/watch?featur...&v=iYol7m3WjGQ

On the road and maybe will be back on regularly. Next stop New Westminster BC.

Well our week in Panama City is about to come to a close. Grands team got eliminated from the tournament yesterday by a very good team from TN. Leaving tomorrow to head back to Tx for a couple days then on to CA for the other grands World Series Tourney. I'm anxious to see them play but not looking forward to 2100 mile drive. Gonna take it nice and easy, don't have to be there for ten more days. Hope everyone is doing well on the rainbow.

Betsy I'm glad to see you venturing out now. Best of luck to you as you start a new chapter in your life. You go girl!

Now, if you hold the youngest and have the rest do some water colors, perhaps your genetics will bloom on paper!

Relish the time, and sleep well, as my grandmothers did. 😇❤️

Jeep wars? What Jeep wars?

Jeep wars?
We dont need no stinking Jeep wars!

About ride.
A comfortable ride is engineered into vehicles that are made for comfortable people that choose to travel smooth, comfortable roads and not "feel" the road. These folks have a "Smoothie" gene in their DNA.

A firm ride and high clearance is engineered into vehicles that are made for people that have a Jeep gene in their DNA that provides a need to creep up and down steep, rocky slopes. Hence the term "Jeepers Creepers".

Simple as that.
🙈🙉🙊

Or, OR, Dear Di, how about driving the grands down a dirt road and let them try their skill at Dirty Car Art?

Downright nifty!

Just take a hammer out and make a small ding somewhere not very noticeable and get it over with already. Once it has it's first ding you can relax and not worry about it so much. Trust me, it will save your sanity.

A car salesperson told us a story about a lady that bought a car and when they delivered it with her license plates on it she asks them to remove the rear plate just for a moment. They said sure and wondered why. After they removed it she took her new key and put a big scratch on the surface covered by the plate and told them to put the plate back on. She then said now it already has had its first scratch so new, minor scratches won't be a big deal. That was one COOL LADY!

Red has some marks of distinguished service. But they are just rock chips on the front from off-roading. No side scratches...yet; they must be earned!

Gwen came pre-supplied with marks of experience. Added 2 more myself. Part of the pride of ownership....and the education that DUH earns me.
