Can I ask a serious question on here... this is not a troll etc.

But :wtf: is up with all this insane "off road armor" etc, and all this raising of the SUVs, adding the giant tires. It completely destroys the on road characteristics. If trail running is the name of the game why not get something like https://ranger.polaris.com/en-us/ranger-crew-570-4/ and tow it behind a jeep? It will be far more capable than most SUVs etc...

Having experienced one recently I find it hard to make the mental./on road sacrifice of adding all those parts to a 4x4 vehicle.
I daily my truck, and with small changes you are not affecting the on-road characteristics much. The trails that Zill and I have run recently don't always end up at the same spot, so you can't drop a trailer and run the trails back to the trailer. Vehicle needs to be plated where we drive too.

it takes a VERY special person. And the desire to live that "life style".

wearing out $2k of muds on the road is just :derp: imo. You are MISERABLE in doing so, but its a :jeep: thing. you wouldnt understand.

Even getting all that to the trail though... the off road lights creating wind noise, the off road suspension wobbling you in there, off road tires creating tons of noise, off road gearing fking with the engine, lack of brakes because the wheels/tires are just too damn heavy and are set up for mud. Just curious, I get the "image" thing, it is :neat: to park hard and show everyone up at work... but outside of living in the "Countryside" :notsure: how that compromise is ok.

Legit question is legit.

My only answer is that sometimes you have a packed up Jeep/Truck and go over those obstacles to actually camp and you want your stuff at the destination.

Otherwise, I think it's just that the 4x4 :truk: / :jeep: is a toy in the end.

It honestly looks photo shopped. Like if they released it to quell the uproar over the other grille yesterday

Honestly like the other truck better that everyone hates from the side shots. That's more traditional grill but doesn't fit.

I think they may be able to pull it off if they black out the front, all chrome bits and option it with rad colors.

The best color on the High Country is white. Yeah, they put shit combos on the High Country. Also, they chrome that model out like it's 1976 and the target audience will be putting curb feelers on them.

White to hide the chrome a bit?

They have to do a blacked out version, and silver paint could work, or black on black on black with cast metal Harley-Davidson logos placed in clutch spots or something.

If I were Barra I'd be having a late night meeting with the Truck and Corvette design teams and hand the project over to the Corvette dudes to clean up. The truck designers would only be there to meet their new new supervisors LOL!

That works, bigger version doesn't offer those choices. It wouldn't be hard though.

Right off the hop I'd start with a mid cycle refresh on the hood, grill and lights. They still have a month till 2019 is here :lol:

Personally, I'm kinda over the Raptor. I've gotten to drive one for a couple hours and could swear I felt my :dedong: shrinking to :dong: and I went from ~6 foot tall to 5 foot 4.

That’s why you need to get a tune and a lift kit.

Interest rates have really thrown cold water on my desire to buy a new ride.

Ram is offering free money but the hood money gets revoked. So total cost end up being relatively close, depending on negotiating skill.

Check with a krebitz union.

I locked in 3.84 for 72 on the :jeep: - I'll pay it off sooner, but being a :dillerman: I prefer to have the fallback plan available for the lowest possible payment.

Just looking at our credit unions website and it says 3.99 for 48. Longer rates not listed. Should call.
