First, I wanted to say I'm a huge Jeep enthusiast and a fan of Jp Magazine. I am an owner of a '97 Wrangler and an '03 Liberty. I'm going to get straight to the point, I do agree that my Liberty can't do some of the terrain my Wrangler can, but it is by no means a girly rig. I have done some crazy stuff with it, like driving through four feet of watery mud and it has always made it through with no problem. It deserves the Jeep logo and the Trail Rated badge. I know it probably won't happen, but try to give the Liberty some love-maybe an article or two if possible. If or when you try a Liberty with the Renegade package, you won't be disappointed. On the other hand, I can't stand the Compass. Now that pile of you-know-what doesn't deserve the title Jeep!
Last Wednesday was one lousy day. My long-time girlfriend decided out of nowhere to kick me out (and the dog too!). As I sat there trying to figure out how I was going to move all my stuff, including spare Jeep parts, an extra set of mud terrains, tools, camper, and clothes in a TJ, I started to feel real sorry for myself. And then the mail came. I sat down and opened my new issue of Jp and read "Hatari! To the Rubicon, Part 2" (March '06). What a great article. It saved me! I could just picture you guys rolling down the highway in that CJ-6, the wind in your hair, dust in your eyes, all in a fully loaded piece of Jeep history. Hell, you guys didn't even know if it would make it to the trail head, let alone actually run the trail itself. But as it turned out, it did and you did. I was inspired! Not only was I suddenly out of my blues, but now I was filled with the sense of adventure. If you guys had the balls to take a 1,300-mile trip in that CJ-6, I could certainly pack my TJ with as much as it would hold and head out to upstate New York and start my new life. I left the next morning.

Ummm, Christian's bald, but I suppose the wind was blowing in his eyebrows.

I'm writing to say you guys are bloody legends. Cheers for keeping me relatively sane by producing such a sweet mag! Your magazine is what got me into Jeeps in the first place. Since I got my mildly modified '97 Wrangler I have been doing my best to infect all my mates with the Jeep bug. There's nothing better than going Jeepin' in the Aussie bush with all my 4x4 buddies. Unfortunately, we don't have the Wrangler Rubicon over here; we only have the Renegade and the Sport. Is our Renegade the Sahara with different stickers?
And why do they bother changing the diff ratios to 3.07 when the Wranglers are imported here? Keep up the good work fellas and sheilas. I'm goin' to throw another shrimp on the barby and feed my pet wombat.
You Australians are silly. It's probably from being on the bottom side of the earth. Does the blood rush to your head from being upside-down all the time? I can't stand to be upside-down longer than a few minutes, so I'll probably never visit the outback. Anyway, I'm not sure if your Renegade is similar to our Sahara. These are typically trim packages that include special wheels, colors, stickers, and so on. There aren't any notable mechanical differences. Well, except our Sahara isn't all upside-down. Good thing Jeeps have fuel injection down under.
