on-roader though, there are a couple issues. It's so dark
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
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.
