    I'm confident that Jeep knows a lot more about how to sell a bunch of Wranglers than those of us on this forum.

    What is available today is there because that is what sales. Weak sellers meet...

    I like what Jeep is trying to do with both the Cherokee and the Renegade. They are aimed at the Outback buyer base and I think that Jeep can win market share in that segment. Of course the off road...

    Your interpretation of the emergency use clause assumes quite a bit that is nowhere to be found in the clause itself.

    No mention of "life or death emergency", just "safety". And careful readers...

    My assumptions and feelings as well.

    The repeaters in my area are dead zones, except for some occasional inane banter between a couple of crusty guys.

    I have the same anecdotes. When in the backcountry and remote areas, I don't see any MTB riders.

    But on trails within 10 miles of an urban area, I cannot count all the MTB riders. They are...

    Certainly true if you are focused on long distance back country travel, nor surprising given the limited range of a person pedaling versus any motorized vehicle.

    Another big xr400 fan here too.

    Everything about the xr400 works for me. Simple, reliable, tough, lots of torque, etc.... I was sorry to see Honda kill the XR in 2004, but I do appreciate that it...

    Yep, the big negatives with BB guns are ricochets and their inaccuracy. Since they are primarily plinkers, I can live with their inaccuracy, but the ricochet problem led me to toss them after my...

    I'm contemplating the purchase of a 4runner TE and would do a similar sort of build.

    I'm especially curious about ride height since I need to park in an underground garage.

    Probably the new Forester. Shorter wheelbase, better departure angles, x-mode for better offroad control, reasonable cargo volume.

    Lots of owners have had oil consumption issues on the Subaru Outback forum.

    But there was a TSB on this and Subaru did make a change to the rings it uses in new motors on 8 May 2013. Build dates...

    Needs versus wants in an overland vehicle is a highly subjective issue.

    In the needs category, my list is short and includes:

    Good ground clearance (8" at least, the more the better)

    Your interpretation of the term "gone broke" is quite a bit different than mine.

    When exactly did Ford go broke and based on what definition of the term?
