Default Maybe I won't miss my JK after all!

Some of you may have read a coupld of my other posts about looking for a new car. I ended up buying a new Mercedes GLK 350 4 matic and I have to say it drives very nice, but I just found this video on YouTube and now I'm thinking maybe I won't miss my JK after all! Please don't take me serious when I say that because I won't be wheeling the new car but check out this video around the 1:00 mark, I hope they weren't trying to market the GLK for offroading but still decently impressive for the type of car/crossover that it is but I wonder if they did any damage while making the video.

Because I like the looks (mine is a new one and much nicer looking than this one), it drives very nice, has some nice features, just enough room, and I'm quite impressed with the performance. Other than that it just fit the needs for my family, was in our budget, and so far I would recommend anyone looking for a well built vehicle to check out a Mercedes.

Don't tempt me! Back in 2006 I leased a TJ and after about 1000 miles I bought a RE Superflex from Kevin at Jeeperz Creeperz, I then put a bunch of other stuff on it and wheeled the shit out of it. I actually followed Keven around at the Mounds during the Chilifest and ended up cracking my transfer case, and while at Silver Lake I ripped both rear shocks right out of the frame (had to fix it with some JKS parts), bent a couple of skid plates and countless dings and scratches and even a rip in the soft top. When the lease was up I put all the factory equipment back on, had the exterior detailed and turned it back in, I feel sorry for the guy who bought it.
