Seent last night after leaving the movie theater with my son. There were other spaces closer to the building, too.

Life is like a parking lot, you never know what kinds of cars you’ll find there.

This one would work better on a Mustang, though.

On the bottom one, the fender badge says “Skyline”, and the rear door says “V-spec NISMO”.  Tailgate says R-spec V, Nismo 370 and a bunch of other random ass bullshit.

How good the TJ wrangler looks in stock form. So many of them have been lifted and diamond-plated and adorned with LED bars that a stock one is a pleasant surprise.

Last night I was working the door at a bar and a regular arrived in a green-over-tan Sahara identical to this one. Even had reasonable tires. It was a 4.0/5-speed with the original top and seats too. So nice.

Oh Jeep

Oh Jeep

My mom has had some bad car...luck? Anyway after totaling her husbands Hyundai Tucson and causing 5 digit damage to her CX-5 at the same time they were in need of some transportation. They got a rental, a 2019 Jeep compass (its always a compass isn’t it?)

I just fielded a call from her: She’s 3 hours away at the lake and it wont start. “Engine not ready” the display center says. What kind of...

On a Scale of 1 to 4.0, how difficult is this?

On a Scale of 1 to 4.0, how difficult is this?

2WD Comanche pickup that “doesn’t run.” Is the 4.0-liter easy as a “first wrenching project?” I like this 2WD Jeep for reasons.

TJ = Peak Wrangler

TJ = Peak Wrangler

Watching this very long video on a stock TJ 2.5 going off road made me realize that the TJ was peak wrangler. Yes the JK and now JL are by far the most popular and way more capable and yet, less...Wrangler.

It’s not that I don’t think the bigger more capable Jeeps are any less Jeep, or they aren’t hitting the market need, or even that they aren’t great in their own right I just...

A lil' Christmas eve test drive. Drove a JL Wrangler for the the first time today

A lil' Christmas eve test drive. Drove a JL Wrangler for the the first time today

I stopped by my local Jeep dealer today to try out the new JL. Been wanting to test drive one ever since the initial reviews came out. For the record, I have only ridden shotgun in a older sport and a 2017 JK Rubicon 2 door.

At first the salesguy brought out the Unlimited soft top, this thing is quite big! I looked around inside and outside, lots of space but wasn’t comfortable taking this...

I Want a Jeep MJ/XJ for Autocross. Don’t @ Me

I Want a Jeep MJ/XJ for Autocross. Don’t @ Me

Short wheelbase, manual, light-ish weight (2900 lbs), RWD, reliable & buildable 4.0-liter. Heck, the wheels from my MR2 fit on it. Just a few lowering springs away from greatness.

This or a 2-door, 4x2 XJ Cherokee. Lower the ride height and downsize the wheels a little bit, maybe find a limited-slip for the rear axle.

What’s OPPO think? Autocross & Jeep Oppos, I’d appreciate your honest...

I kind of miss small jeeps

I kind of miss small jeeps

This video doesn’t tell the whole story, so I did a graphical top down illustration of size.

The JLU (by far the most popular wrangler) is literally twice as big, and heavy as its CJ forefathers

cj-2a footprint - 50.6 square feet

JLU footprint - 96.6 square feet

Cj-2a weight - 2,140 lbs

JLU weight - 4,440 lbs

I realize you get a lot more Jeep and that its a much better overall vehicle,...
