That shocked me about the Bison bumper. You would think AEV would have designed a better bumper, more similar to the factory ZR2 bumper.One of the most interesting bits was that we found the Bison’s add-ons actually made it less capable where it needed approach angle. The bumpers add protection, but decreases the approach angle by 5 degrees.
Jeep has been selling about 25,000 Wranglers a month lately...it is probably a very small percentage that actually get off-road regularly. I would bet that once the newer model reaches the 2nd owners they will get more action. I have had mine off road twice in the first year, and it was so much fun. But at the same time its hard to justify beating on a $56k Jeep.Well written review/comparo.
I've always wondered how many of these off-road vehicles actually see dirt. I'd say that the majority of them are suburban mall cruisers.
Im no Toyota fan but Im willing to bet Toyota and the Tacoma might have something to say about that.......The Gladiator is the best mid size truck out right now. They are fucking expensive though. I might be enticed by an eco-diesel Rubicon when it comes time for new truck though. If they put the 5.7 in it, I would be 100% sold.
Its still pretty much the medium class bench mark tho isnt it?
Im sure it holds value better and prolly more reliable too is what im getting at.
Ancient or not.
