    Damn, if only half of these reservations make it all the way thru the process that’s awesome.

    Now if we could just get Ram to bring back the Ramcharger :hmm:

    I love the old boxy 2 door Suvs. GM dropped the ball on the blazer, Ford has a promising contender.....Ram......crickets. Buttttt, the Rebel TRX will be drool worthy and likely over the cost of my house.

    I would just be happy if they’d make a Ram version of the Suburban.

    This, I’d drive. Not sure about 5th Gen one, tho....

    I can say this about Hodge XJ, dude you really shook the tree with this one, lol. It’s good to see some loyalist’s come out and not sitting on a fence trying to decide which way to Jump.
    By the way does everyone no how the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon came into production.? A few Jeep designer’s took their own Jeep Wrangler’s and started modding them, taking them to the famous Rubicon trail, they’d mod, test, break, fix, repeat and talk about what they’d like their Jeeps to be built like. They’d try new thing’s and try again and when they came up with what they thought they could convince Jeep into making they presented it to their bosses. Who said no at first but after some more tweaking and begging on their hands and knees Jeep decided to build it.
    Bang 2003 Jeep Wrangler TJ, the only factory stock built vehicle to conquer the Rubicon trail completely unassisted. Jeep isn’t stupid they are owner motivated and that’s why they are owner loyal.
    When’s the last time a manufacturer listened to it’s customer base and not it’s designer’s and stockholder’s you ask? Well I just told you. And on a side note the Jeep wave and in part the Harley Rider’s wave was because after WWII the only vehicles returning Vet’s were able to really find for cheap and purchase were the surplus Jeep’s and Harley’s left over and sold after WWII and it’s was their way of acknowledging a fellow Vet and this a part of the American subculture.
    So let’s see how Ford and their new Bronco handles that I mean for shits sake they lost the Military contract to build Jeeps for WWII, they were among 3 competing entities and well, we all know who won that. And so far as my Power Wagon it’s history is just as storied with WWII and the first personally available 4WD heavy duty truck made.

    My wife and I test drove a jeep but we bought a Ram instead, we love the looks but neither one of us were comfortable driving/riding in the Jeep. Will the Bronco be any better?....too early to tell for me.

    Not really a Ford fan. I have an 06 Rubicon Unlimited that I bought new. Spent another $10000 to make it rock worthy and them some. My wife drive a 2019 Grand Cherokee and our Ram 1500 Guess I am a RAM/Jeep fan all the way.

    Don't ever sell that 06 Unlimited Rubi. That's gonna be the most unicorn Jeep made imo.
