    I'd think that would be a little embarassing to have that little wannabe sitting next to your beast.

    hahaha that's to funny! The Liberty is the sign of Jeep selling out. The least capable Jeep ever it should be sold as. What a shame. Lets see a Liberty on trail 9 at tellico instead of the easy stuff at Mont Eagle. Some of my IRC buds managed to get in on a test session with the liberty at Rubicon. By the time they were done the 3 libertys only one was drivable. One got layed over on a rock that the Grands that were also there walked and the other shreaded some front drivline to the point where parts were having to be brought in to repair it enough to get it out. The last the Grands had to keep dragging to photo ops.
    You know your Sub is about famous and showing up all over the palce. You sure you want to go to a S body now?

    If my suburbans body wasn't fatigued out, doors don't match up to close properly, front fenders have pulled completely away from cab mounts, etc.,I would probably keep going. I did like to see people's reaction when I would follow a jeep or bronco thru a hard trail but no one wants the weight of a Sub.

    Should have gotten a pic of Titanic driving off the trailer over the Liberty.

    That picture does no justice for the size of titanic. I got to watch Titanic come up slick rock at Tellico and it was awsome! Somewhere there was a picture of Titanic on the trailer behind the 90's Sub that pulls it. It dwarfs the 90's burb. That Libertys roof might come up to the window ledge of the Titanic.

    Those liberty's are capable of going offroad? Hum...I didnt think they even offered a 4wd. Looked like another rav4 to me...Sounds like they dont fend to well offroad which is about what I expected

    That is one hell of a suburban!

    What? You think the hole is too deep? Lemme see...

    I like the caption under the picture `No Caption Nessicary'

    that about covers my opinion of that dung heap... I mean most offroad articles don't take pictures of it being towed through the hardest parts of the trails, but this one seems to have the strait dope, without saying `this is built for prissy little yuppies who want the most expensive, yet useless vehicle they can get' vibrates at 77 MPH? neither of my trucks do that all that bad, and the K20 sub's excuse is that it needs new Tcase mounts.

    My truck's frame is bent so bad the rear springs hardly move and everything from the shock mounts to the bumper is junk. It still is save to drive 70+ MPH.
