Truth. My uncle owns a construction company that hosted one of the episodes and my family helped with the build. Ty was only there to film the clips you see on the show had little to nothing to do with the construction or decisions. All materials and labor are donated by the construction company as well as the plan Read more

As a Hummer should be, no? IMO, the Hummer shouldn’t be a Wrangler alternative, it should be a monster.

They are likely selling it at a loss but they is OK. It allows them to advertise a Versa for $14,830 and then actually sell the customer a $20,000 car. Read more

I got the Yaris price directly from toyota.com. It may not be continuing in production, but it’s still very much for sale. Likewise with the Fit. Read more

Not when the argument is about the EV being more or equally as cost effective as the truck. An ICE car of similar size will blow the cost of ownership vs. an EV out of the water.

People around here love to complain about how expensive cars are, but $36,000 is under the average new car price. Read more

You can’t compare the cost of ownership of an EV to a truck with a 90 mile commute, unless your EV is also a truck. You need to compare the EV to a comparable car in its size segment.

Pentagram is, hands down, one of the top design and identity firms in the world. Part of that knowledge, experience, and talent is knowing when to not change things and when to place value in history and lean on brand equity. Removing the RR from the box without changing the RR itself was exactly the right move here.

There’s no law against waving if you’re not in a Wrangler. If you waved at me I’d certainly wave back, hell, I waved at a classic Bronco once that waved at me. That being said, I don’t tend to track non-Wranglers so there’s a good chance whoever you wave to just won’t be paying attention.

I’ve got an ‘02 TJ. I happily wave at other TJs since they’re getting more and more uncommon, but waving at anything with 4 doors and a color-matched hard top is definitely forced.

I struggle to see the benefit of lowering it in the JL wince it has the permanent frame in place after the windshield is lowered. It’s more like driving without glass that it is driving with the entire piece lowered.

Agreed, as long as there is a way to remove the mirrors on the Bronco. Jeep makes a good point, but 99% of people who remove the doors are doing it for fun driving, not for the sake of offroading and the design in that instance should reflect the vast majority of buyers, not the slim minority.

Wrangler owner here. It gets tiresome constantly trying to time the wave, gauge whether or not the other one will wave first or at all based on model and driver demographic, accidentally missing a return wave and feeling like an asshole, and the embarrassing feeling of waving without getting one in return.

Every time I see these wheels, and I do almost daily, I vomit a little in my mouth.

Well, the average age of cars on the road is 11.9 (call it 12) years, which means over half of the cars on the road were made over a decade ago. Any changes made by the NTSA in the last 10 years wouldn’t be reflected in the majority of cars currently on the road.

If there’s one thing I always look for in a $40,000+ vehicle, it’s one that’s been fast tracked by a manufacturer with a less than stellar reliability and quality record.
