I also have a GRand Cherokee, a 2001 Limited 4x4 (with the Quadra Drive option) 4.7 L V-8 235 bhp, I have yet to take it off-road because it is my newest truck, but I plan on doing so quite often in the future at Jeep Jamborees to initiate my off-road career. However, A GC Rubicon edition, with the V-8, Quadra Drive, Up-Country plus Durango style tires to really fill those oversize wheel wells, as well as nerf bars and other custom options standard, would be an inetertsing idea that would have me inetersted. However, it must be simil;ar to th Nissan XTerra, with onlt the necessary features; i.e. no 10-Disc Changer, no leather available, etc. It would fulfill the empty promises of other special GC's such as the 1998 5.9 Limited, 1994-5 Orvis Edition, and others...

Is it just me or they getting carried away with the Grand Cherokee models? This is just another country club setup like the rest. If this thing is the "Most Capable" SUV out there where's the Rubicon edition, now that would get my interest.

I for one, love my Grand Cherokee. I have a 2001 with 31,000 miles on it, and it has been great. I have the up-country package, and it will blow the doors off any non-jeep vehicle off-road. Off-road performance is the jeep hallmark, not a vinyl, hose out interior. Sure, you can do that with a wrangler (I used to do it with mine), but you have to take the carpet out first. Comparing a jeep to a poser HONDA??? concept for urban wannabees? You have got to be kidding me! And before you think I'm a "country club" Grand owner, I get mine very muddy EVERY WEEK, and it has a lot of "custom pinstriping" from the brush lined trails we have here in South Jersey. I happen to like a vehicle that is not only great off-road, but is a VERY comfortable daily driver. There is nothing wrong with comfort. By the way, if you want a hose out interior, do what I did. The first Jeep accesory I bought for the WJ was a set of plastic floor and cargo area liners form Cabelas. For about $150 you can get hard plastic floor and cargo liners that cover ALL carpeted areas in the passenger compartment and cargo area.

Exactly! Grand cherokees my ass. Meanwhile Honda
is putting out designs like the Element. Granted
it's ugly, but it looks fun with high ride, seats
that all come out, rubber hoseable interior, etc.
Get back to the basics, Jeep!
