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.

It'll be interesting to see at which level the Wrangler sales will stabilize. I mean it is certainly not a vehicle for everyone, it is a bit shocking that it is moving as many units as it is. There has been a lot of pent up demand from the JK guys trying to switch over, and with super high resale values, the "payment" will be similar for most poor fucks driving SUVs they can't afford.

It's uncharted territory, IMO. There's never been this much capacity, so it's reaching (if it already hasn't) oversupply. The rest of the year will be really interesting.

It’s also never been such a viable, nice day to day car for life, so maybe they can steal sales from other stuff. Plus if it’s the same money as a 4Runner you’d have to be high off your ass to get that prehistoric Toyota and that’s really the closest competitor?

Yea, true. It's amazing how many people buy 4Runners. Now it's because it's so ancient it's "cool" because it's "simple" or whatever.

Yeah, I'd have a hard time buying a 4Runner over the JL assuming equivalent cost.

If it has no merit, for sure. But buying a Toyota because they have not wronged you due to stellar reliability ... I can get behind that
