Wanabe Posuer no more.

Well, maybe not.
Wife's 2nd rig.

We are off to get some wheeling pics. Just picked it up and time to get it dirty.
2007 with Adventure package.

I'll tell you, it would tear most stock Jeeps a new ass off-road. With some swaybar disconnects and rocker guards, it will be.
If the Boss gives me permission.

Not a bad rig at all offroad for stock.

As soon as I have the time to build some real rocker guards, I'll get some real wheeling pics.

Are you telling me that you're H3 can beat a Rubicon? Or that it can beat a regular JK? Or TJ, YJ, XJ, CJ, MJ, ZJ,...well you get the idea. I agree that it will kick the ass of a new Grand Cherokee, Liberty (maybe), Comander, Compass, and Patriot, but a new stock Jeep? I think not

1st off, have you wheeled a H3? I have wheeled almost every Jeep you have mentioned.
I do believe I said MOST stock Jeeps. A new Rubi, no way. A YJ absolutely. A stock Wrangle, yes. What do you think we have been test driving all week? New Jeeps and other 4x4s. The Wrangler X was a major turd. Even a few cars.
I have friends with all sorts of Jeeps and We just don't like them. We tried, but not for us. The Rubi Unlimited wasn't bad though. She wanted something better than a Jeep as we both has very capable Scouts. One is Mildly modded and the other heavily built.

I have out wheeled stock YJs with bone stock "RENTAL" Grand Cherokees in the past as my friends cry foul when I bring my Scout out against their Jeeps.. I would go to the airport, rent a Grand. Pull the cladding off, and then take it wheeling against my Jeep friends. Put the cladding back on and then turn it in.
I am not new to wheeling or Jeeps. Been doing this for almost 30 years now all over the country. That is why I don't own Jeeps either. Been there and done that.

As for the older Jeeps, I have older rigs to wheel against those.

So, if you do care to try to prove me wrong, come on down to Tucson and we will go out and see. Show you some nice scenery too.

Nice dirt road there. Just to put you back to reality. Here's a stock YJ in Florence



And a stock YJ on Axle Alley, which I'm sure you've heard of judging by your location

that yj is doing pretty good for no lift and no lockers. An experienced driver can get most any 4x4 anywhere.

Yep, that would be me....crack smoker...I'll try almost anything once

But I have conquered several obstacles that were similar, really it's probably worse than it looks in the photos, kinda similar to escalator....which I walked

Bebe can do it. Of course I am biased, because my old 85 Toyota spanks all of the rigs mentioned above with ease .....

just googled "axle alley" and from the write-ups I read and the pictures I saw, I'm not sure a stock anything could make it through there. Looked like there were several sections that even some of the built rigs had to be winched up. But I've obviously never been there.

How does it compare to some of the gnarlier trails in Moab (as I was just there)? Looks like Johnson Valley (the hammers) here in So Cal -- a bit too narrow for my truck's fat arse.

Only winched the first fall which is a fall totally based on wheelbase, gotta have 104+. Stock wheelbase Jeeps don't have a chance today, but a long time ago maybe.

different rigs for different folks... im tired of this arguement... but screw it...

for me ill take me dodge ram 2002 to do some mild wheeling, think trail ratings of 2, but for anything more a i pull the jeep of the trailer...

it all depends on the driver

A good driver can make any vehicle look fantastic in stock form...

that said...a poor driver can make even the most capable rigs look downright pathetic.

Yep

Locked rear and a 4:1 low range. You shouldn't have any problems with those speed bumps in the mall parking lot.

How much did all this cost you?
