Again, not saying a Jeep isn't a badass off-road truck with shit tons of ability, but so are the FJ's, 4Runners, Tacoma's and others as well. If you have the money, it's easily accomplished. Now, calm your over sensitive ass's down, wash the sand out of your pussy, and have a beer! Smoke some weed or something and chill. :D

yes you should do a SAS to prove how superior your IFS is.

It is a demo model they used before releasing it to public. I know, far cry from the full Rubicon models that came out. It does say Rubicon on the title, he was quite proud of it and showed me. lol His has the Straight six 4.0 in it.

That wrangler WILL run circles around your Toyota. No ifs, ands, or buts about unless some moron is behind the wheel who had ok clue what they are doing. It might not tow as much but who the fukc cares that's why you buy a truck.

You got screwed.

Give it time, Xander and I played a game of Fifa 2014 on Xbox, a game of madden 2013, 2 games of darts, built some shelves in the garage, and had a bedtime story.

Oh, and while playing darts I was able to enjoy two beers, while he enjoyed a rootbeer out of a glass bottle.

You stupid ass, the title wouldn't say Rubicon even if it WAS a Rubicon. Michigan titles rarely have the model as anything but blank, let alone a fucking sub-model or package.

The sad part about this really is, I don't think that is a photoshop. I think his friend is just as damn stupid as he is and thought he'd buy some letter stickers and spell it out on the hood. And even more stupid, since you are lying through your teeth anyway, why not just google a picture of a sweet Rubicon and pretend that was your friends'?
