We got passed by 5 of them in a row on us23 a couple of days ago. 3 of them had CRD on the back.

Funny part was, none of them had manufactureer or dealer plates on them. They looked like regular plates.

I saw some goofyass tan Jeep "thingy's", about 4 or 5 of them in a tight knit pack heading north in Standish just after I got off I75. Is that..."thing" a compass?

Did you notice if they had turn signal indicators on the rear of the front quarter panel?

Top one is one of the most awkward goofy looking front bumpers i have seen in a long time. Then ends are all swollen and mis-shaped. YUCK who let that get to production.

I agree the lower one is almost tolerable. Shoulda been a chrylser though, not a jeep. Still hate it.

Saw one at Village Jeep the other day and stopped to check it out. Front end is not bad looking, but it seems they quit designing it at the windws and just pinched it off like a turd. Saddened to see the Jeep logo on such a bastardized hunk of metal. Oh well.

some type of evaluation ride. I think the "M" plates are only supposed to be used for transporting vehicles from one place to another via public roads. They get abused, but if your driving it for some other reason than that i think it's supposed to have a regular plate.

I like the Dodge version better.

I drove GM owned vehicles for 5 years. None of them had M plates. The autos register and switch plates at a rapid volume. Thay have 1000's of plates. M plates are for transporation as Bruce said.

M-plates arent necessarily only for transportation, but, at least at chrysler, you are supposed to do a bit of paperwork to drive them on public roads.

We do road trips today with m-plate chryslers. But, when you drive, you are supposed to have approval, and fill out a log of usage, miles, etc. Rarely did people do that.

In terms of the compass, they are almost to vehcile launch. The last round(s) of pre-production builds are saleable, and often get normal plates.
