Jeep Wave Explained
I wave at off-roaders in other kinds of vehicles too. It's not just a jeep thing.

RIPSAW NEW Video... BAJA Handling is Awesome.
I'm sure that these are extremely expensive and that they're hard to get, transport, and that there are a ton of restrictions on where they can even be used.

2018 Jeep Wrangler JL Reveal - 2017 LA Auto Show
Is there a serious rival to the Wrangler? The updated Wrangler looks pretty nice!

mrfish: The new jeep looks pretty nice! I'll stick with the one I've got, but for someone thinking about purchasing a new one this could be a great year to do so! I truly appreciate the fact that you can get a factory model with 33 inch tires!

I'll stick with what I got too. Not that I could afford a new jeep! The prices on those things have gotten kind of ridiculous!
Would you walk a mile for me?

The truth about jeep tire sizes. How to choose the right Jeep tire size.
Interesting info about tire options. I think 35" oughta be plenty for most people!

Generally I think 35 inches is as big as most people need to go. Beyond that it's for show, with the possible exception of hardcover rock crawlers.

The Green Rock Dawg
Lots of great engineering and some ideas that might be adaptable into consumer vehicles quite possibly.

sandman: Fun toy, but it's probably not that easy to learn to use it skillfully. There's a lot of little gizmos that need to be controlled. I could see how some of the ideas could be incorporated into jeeps and other off-road vehicles though.
