General Comments and Impressions

Larger expedition style vehicles can be an issue on tight 3.5+ trails. A SWB vehicle like a Jeep, FJ40 or Defender 90 (or similar) is more appropriate for the technical terrain. I purchased the Jeep in an effort to eliminate the inherent compromises with larger expedition style vehicles. I use this vehicle for areas like Moab, Rubicon, etc. Overall, I have been satisfied with the vehicle. My biggest complaint involve the drivetrain (not the motor). The Wrangler drivetrain requires extensive modifications to ensure durability when used heavily off-highway. The axle modifications alone were more than the purchase price of the vehicle. The Jeep has proven reliable, and was used on the El Camino Del Diablo run in March 2003 as a light expedition vehicle. I was testing its capabilities while loaded to GVWR, pulling a trailer over 150 miles of remote desert terrain.
