I want one. These things are bad ass, the only thing I didn't like was the liberty engine in it. It's close to the size of an expedetion, but only square. The model that I looked at was I guess the entry level one, priced at 29K not to bad.

I did. It was also what would be considered the "SE" edition, since it had the 3.7L V-6 in it, no sun roofs and such. But it also didn't have LOW GEAR, which according to them won't be available until at least the bigger engines come available (weird... Rolling Eyes ).

It rides better than the Liberty, but handles differently, kinda like a slower version of my XJ somewhat.

As far as the design goes, it looks great. It has plenty of room inside, and rides quieter than the XJ ever did. The dash is smart with every gauge in plain sight, and has all the power ammenities. It is definitely IFS, and that's why I think it felt different driving it.

All-in-all, it's not gawd-awful, but definitely lacking in many areas. If it came with the Hemi standard, non-IFS choice, all premium lower gears (it DOES have Quadratrac, but no 1-2,3 gears on the box), AND all the other ammenities, it would be definitely worth it. For now, the V-6 version needs too many things modded to be worth it.

but it is nice, no I didn't drive it, because they didn't have an larger engines on the lot and didn't want to be dissapointed with the v-6. I still want one. The version that I looked at was all wheel drive.

Wow.......

The marketing gets worse with each year. I thought those ride-along videos from last year were cheesy. This takes it to a whole new level.

Aliyah, if you want to promote the brand and Jeep models...how about some information of the new Wrangler...whatever form it may take.

Well we do have spec information available on the 2006 Wrangler, if thatís what youíre interested in. As far as the promotions are concerned, currently there are no promotions running for this particular vehicle. However please feel free to check out the jeep.com periodically for future updates. Thank you.

Just a side note to all: the second Mudds video has been launched, if you get a chance, check it out @ http://wearethemudds.com

It just looked mean. It must have been a Limited or something, because it had some nice agressive rims and other more appealing features.
