As an  on-roader though, there are a couple issues.  It's so dark
inside that  sitting in it feels like being in a cave, and the huge D
pillars create big  blind spots exactly where you'd like to be able to
see when changing lanes.  Also, the large, heavy wheels, tires and
driveline compromise the on-road  handling IMO.

when I test drove one back in March I found this to be right on the money.  
It is a "lane-changing" nightmare. I found it to be much more spacious than it  
appears though. in/egress from the backseat through the suicide doors is 
simple.  The available "active traction control" has received rave reviews from 
all of  the articles I have read. One other detractor is that it requires 
premium fuel.  I ended up getting an 07 wrangler because i wanted a serious 
off-roader and a  convertible. The JK is the only thing out there that fits the bill.
