    I got this off the pirate board. New Jeep KJ. I thought it was worth a good cheap laugh. <A target="_blank" HREF=http://albums.photopoint.com/j/View?u=1414936&a=10579930&p=36013204&Sequence=0&res=high>http://albums.photopoint.com/j/View?u=1414936&a=10579930&p=36013204&Sequence=0&res=high</A>

    Ironically enough someone on the pirate board said the same thing. Someone else said if they had to drive it they would wear a bag over their head.

    When they talk about new Jeeps being off-road alot, they're talking about service garages!

    That sucker does like a whole lot like the kia sportage. Is this really coming out or did someone just alter the photo?

    I figured it out, it's a Ford Escape with a Jeep grill "grafted" onto it.

    Hopefully, if the automakers keep making junk "SUV"s like this, they will start making bigger ones to satisfy people that don't want a toy and want a real truck. Maybe even rear wheel drive when in 2WD[​IMG]

    Nope, it\'s the real deal....

    Nope, not a doctored pic, it is the real deal. This is what will replace the boxy style Cherokee Sport in 2005. They are also getting rid of the inline6 for a V6. Ick!

    Re: Nope, it\'s the real deal....

    Jeeps haven't been worthy of off-road from the factory in years. Pass by a jeep lot and you see all these jeeps have these itty bitty car tires, like 215's or something...lol! They look so dopey its not even funny!

    You know the Jeep slogan, right? "Real Jeeps are built, not bought". [​IMG]

  17. You all have to remember that Jeep is now owned by Chyrsler or I mean Diamler-Chrysler. The old days where it was a true blue American vehicle are over.
