Concerning Jeeps.....Some people like the "top off" feature, some like the SFA of a Jeep...I personally like safety, airbags, comfort, resale, reliability, history, and the non-electrical nightmare (you very well may see this after 3 years of Jeep ownership as it is generally about this time that electrical engineering of a Jeep is called into question, I have many friends that are on their 5th Wrangler in 7 years....) of the FJ Cruiser. The FJ may not have the "rock climber" SFA advantage of a Rubicon (but since I am not crawling rocks on my way to my computer engineering job and simply want a capable off-roader for the rare times that I am able to break free from work and family) I am crazy about the FJ...LOL
I seriously looked at Jeeps when I thought I couldn't afford the FJ. Once I realized that I could indeed afford the FJ and after considering my particular situation, the FJ was a no brainer...capable 4x4 in any reasonable situation that I would place it in after a well thought out attempt at some weekend fun/play.
I still like the Jeep solid front axel, but would definitely wait to get one simply as a recreational toy, for rock crawling and one that I did not rely on, one that I wouldn't mind beating the hell out of and leave on the side of the road waiting for a flatbed to pick up and deliver to the house a few days after I return home to my wife and son safely.....LOL
My FJ delivers all the off road fun that I need and will deliver me to my job Monday morning after the weekend fun, so that I can keep the $$$ flowing that makes such weekend fun possible.
That is all
