Default Ugly F'in 4-door wranglers

I keep seeing those damn new 4-door wranglers running all around the Chelsea Proving-grounds areas wearing diapers. They look like a mini-H3. Ugly ass design. Someone needs to be kicked in the junk!

Here's a link though with basically what I get to see daily:

I've seen them a few times in the area too. BUT, that's whats nice about being around Chelsea. you see some different stuff.

I also don't really care for them all that much.

Stock 2-dr wranglers look ugly as fawk to me, so I will reserve judgement on the 4-dr until I see one that has been properly modified.

That's pretty funny coming from someone with square headlights. I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I personally rejoiced when the TJs came out after 9 years of the YJ.:miff:

Default Jeep "H3"

I don't know....sounds like they'll sell a ton. I would never by an H3 because I couldn't handle feeling like such a poseur...even if it is a capable vehicle.

But a Jeep "H3"??? Hmmmmmmmmmm.....

As you said beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but just to be clear it's not the round headlights that are on a TJ that make it ugly - I think stock YJ's are just as butt ugly. I did not buy my Jeep for it's sleek and stylish lines though, lol (I didn't buy it for the headlights either)

Wranglers just look funny to me in stock form. I have just really gotten used to looking at modified Jeeps, that have been made to look great (imo). Now that my eye is accustomed to looking at modified Jeeps, stock Jeeps are even uglier to me.

trust me their ugly to the bone. the new Jeep has a lot to be desired as far as power , its got great suspension and it may even surpass the ability of a stock TJ. I haven't a clue how well they may sell because I think they are two steps from a honda elemnt for plastic content. the roof thing has the ability to a be a 3 peice with the front exposed. the rear section comes off and then the roll/sport bar is intagrated into the body so its not removable

SWEET! Unibody roll cage. I bet it makes it lighter than having a frame-monted cage. :miff:
