This is from a yahoo article. I dont think they have ever driven one off road :Nonono:
That's gay!!!!!!! I'll take my KJ over any other jeep. I'm far from easy on it and it always brings me home.
Another mis-informed "journalist." :whymewhyme:
I quit worrying about how the Liberty is thought of in the off-road community because I know it's capabilities. Every time I take it off-road someone comments on how surprised they are at what the Libby can do - and it's usually a TJ or JK owner who says it.
She doesn't sport a set of 33's, I don't carry a Hi-Lift jack, I can't go topless - but I can damn sure run most of the trails the Wranglers do and then take it to the self-serve wash, clean it up and take my wife and a couple of friends out to a very nice dinner in air-conditioned comfort. Ha! :rotflmao:
The yahoo journalists are as dumb as most of the people that comment on their articles at the bottom of their web page, I read them just so I can feel smarter.
Some of that is probably true - A retired Jeep engineer said so on Allpar - The Liberty was set to be a more typical Jeep and they changed some things as the RAV4 was becoming popular. And V8 mpg with V6 performance does suck. http://www.allpar.com/model/jeep/liberty-history.html
person who wrote that obviously never drove a liberty, because they handle exactly like a car.
Put some new shocks in it,and not those junk monroe or kyb crap.
no, I really mean that they actually ride nice, unlike the rest of the jeeps out there that purists would consider "real"
i still wouldnt call that abomination a cherokee
The new Cherokee is ugly as sin. I could accept it as a soft roader with a little more prowess than average but the styling is awful. I wonder who it was who green lit that front end?
I have to agree that the new cherokee is ugly. And I'm pretty sure we wont be able to mod them as much as the old ( real ) cherokee or the libby. But, out of the look, 9 speed trans and a real T-case. It's still WAYYYYYY over manyother VUS that claim being off-road friendly. Anyway, this just make me love my libby more
