Its just a jeep. Nothing to like about it. I doubt if it even goes through a mud puddle let alone off on a trail somewhere.

Hey BMAN if you don't like the man's jeep keep it to yourself. He's proud of it and he should be.

No offense to the owners or their rides but this "Ride of the week" needs to end. Look at the date on the other posts.

Sure gets old seeing the same ones week after week after week.
