    Hi Guys and Gals, I just bought my first Jeep, a shiny new 2027 Wrangler Sport. I've always wanted a Jeep, but never could justify it before. But I finally took the leap. My only offroad experience is with a Toyota 4runner that I took down trails a lot more than I probably should have. I'm excited about how much more capable this vehicle is going to be!

    Cheers!

    Whoops!! 2017! If I could give ya a sneak peek at the 2027's I would! Hopefully it will look a lot like the 2017's (maybe different colors!)

    Bob, I had no problems wheeling the 4runner. It was a 2003 Limited. I took it to DSO and all around the public lands near Lake Houston. But I was always pretty careful about avoiding really deep mud. It was kinda heavy, and almost stock. (I had mud tires and a bit of a lift). But it performed better than I would have thought. I put 242K miles on that behemoth, and it just got totaled. So... I went out and bought my first Jeep. When the insurance money comes in from the 4runner, I'll have a bit of budget for upgrades. (tires, lift, bumper, winch)..
