i love my truck. dirt cheap, 35k brand new. heavy duty trans, rear axle, 4.10 gear, e-rated tires, engine oil and trans cooler, over 9” of ground clearance, no AFM. it goes everywhere. i had a rubicon and honestly i take this thing anywhere i would have taken the rubicon. if my truck won’t get there, it’s either walking or a dirt bike, a high-end off-road special edition truck or SUV isn’t going to make a difference.
but people buy these TRD and raptor type rigs as much for the bling factor as anything, they prolly ain’t slapping a snugtop on the back!
