Feb 14th 2012 3:25PM Like others said before, it depends on where you are traveling. In New Zealand, gas is way cheaper than in the US, and out in the back-country roads, there are not many motels and hotel choices, and they are not cheap or inclusive of breakfast like in the states. The average 2-egg breakfast in New Zealand will run you $20.
However, the country is very well set up for campervans with park sites along every scenic route - maybe only 4 hours drive apart, and that is a very common way to travel there.
Jan 16th 2006 7:26PM I too was hoping for Jeep to produce something like a two-door Rescue with a soft top option.
I own a 2004 Unlimited - I love it. As for the 2007, I think they have added a number of great mechanical upgrades. I always wanted something to come stock with larger tires and higher ride... the extra hip and shoulder space is a great addition... I always thought the shoulder space was very limited in the TJ. The interior looks great - looks like they beefed up the stereo options. I love the modular top - great addition.
Here's where I think it misses: I hate the grill - it doesn't have the sculped look of the TJ... it looks like someone stamped a flat piece of metal and painted it. The front fenders look stupid too - they actually stick out beyond the front metal. Right now, the TJ has a partial metal fender which the plastic fender attaches to. If someone wants to go with larger tires, what are they going to do?... buy a foot-wide aftermarket fender?
