I posted it for Johnny, he was curious about the JL since Doug D was raving about how it is like a car which I found :wat:
Doug D. is about as bad as this guy anymore.... If I'm watching any of his "why the XYZ is worth $$$$" videos in the livingroom on the TV my wife goes :rage: when she walks in.

Also, didn't know SubuarubarubaruWRXFanboi changed his channel name...
He decided having the word Mor”o”n in his name beats fan but the jury is still out on that one

First thing I thought about was how he is a "Moran". :hue:

Doug does some of the most in-depth looks at vehicles I've ever seen. And I like that. His opinions are pretty stupid, so I ignore those...but it's neat to see him pick through every tiny detail.

My guess would be that Chris took some time off because he has read the dialogue on this page 1,345 times and decided to spend some of his free time doing something besides beating a horse to death.

The main thing I dislike about Doug is Doug himself, he strikes me as someone who would masturbate in front of a retirement community.

Also considering his substantial YouTube income you’d think he would get mildly better equipment and spend a bit more time editing

He also uses the same words over and over and over, which is why my wife :fshitup: when he is on. "Quirk" is one he uses way too often for things that sometimes aren't even quirky.

Also, he's oblivious about many of the things he comments on. I had to turn off the one he did recently about the C7 Z06... Also, since he "borrows" normal people's cars or gets them on Turo some of the things he sees are not normal to a car that hasn't been fucked with.

Agreed 100%. I do my best to ignore him and focus on the content he's presenting. As soon as he starts driving, I shut it off.

Oh, I remember what started it on the Z06 video...

He has a spot where he shows the owners manual and the pages talking about the Ackermann effect on the tires and chatter, as well as how the steering may be pulled due to the crown of the road... so, he claims he read the manual.... but then goes on to tell everyone that "there is no way to open the hatch from the outside and you have to either use the key fob, or the button inside the car." Did he not even look at the rear of the car, or ever drive a C6, or a Mustang S550 that have the same type of rubber button for the hatch? Then it just snowballed from there.

His z06 review was ok, he seemed to have liked the car ?! The heated seat thing is a bit funny.

Two ways?

You mean the emergency pulls?

If you want the push button open that they used in the C6 and C7 you need the emergency release latches. Funny story, I actually "rescued" a guy in a C7 when it just came out at the SF auto show. He was in the passenger seat and the battery was dead on the car. He was starting to look panicked, so I had to show him the release latch. He said he was stuck in it for about 5 minutes when he thanked me.

:lolol:

Yes I don’t know I think something like doors should remain mechanical in nature and have some kind of over ride.

My current bmw without power would leave me trapped inside, since they can’t find the proper fix for the doors.
So I’m :triggered: by needless door complexity and electrifying things that have no business being electrified

I agree. I think the cool factor of the push button door releases was over by the time the C7 came out.

WRXMoranBoi uses "nice" far too much in his videos. It drives me insane.

Doug D's review of the Jeep was actually pretty good. I don't like him much either.

Yeah, I try to ignore his uber-nerd persona (I hope it is kind of exaggerated for the videos), but my wife isn't having it. A lot of the content is pretty good if you filter some of it and know that he's probably wrong about parts.

no shame in crawling. the jeep life just aint that bad.

I havent found the right :225: for mine yet. I'd like 33" tars so 33x11xr17 if thats even a thing? 285/75r17 is this closest I have found, but I am really :scrooge: and really prefer how AT tires ride.
