My K5 blazer is the one that has to go and pull out of mud, sand or anything when these expensive crap suvs get stuck. I can replace my 383 stroker with the cost of replacing a part on those Mercedez or Range Rovers, and have more fun knowing that I can go anywhere without worring about scratching my paint or breaking down....Older 4X4 like my K5 were built for a purpose not like this want to be 4x4s driving around the cities with Stupid 22 inch wheels and so on...
Agreed, not all adventures start at the Rubicon. It was to appeal to a wide variety of SUV's owners with a variety of funds at their disposal. Also, it was to show what they can do straight from the factory. Not after putting 20K into it, then braggin about how much better it is than the new ones. I think most people can agree with that right?. Still, most would argue the Element and Avalanche could be replaced by far superior SUV's/trucks.
P.S. The Icon FJ-Looks cool, but not for $100K. Like previously mentioned, it has springs not coils (very low hanging springs I might add). What's with the crappy photo shop front end? (The first pic of the article) Anyone else notice this?
Honda Element??! Get real! What, is the writer of this article 15 years old? I just wasted two minutes of my life reading this junk.
Even featuring a Jeep Grand Cherokee would have lent SOME credability to this article.
