I am letting you know that I have been a subscriber for several years, and the content of this magazine is constantly in the gutter. I couldn't let my 2-year-old son look at it because of pictures of Bree. You definitely don't do enough hard-core trail action with Libertys and Commanders. Hopefully, the new Compass will get more exposure in your magazine. I opened my mailbox and there was my subscription notice, so I went ahead and subscribed for three more years. You guys do a great job! This is the only magazine that I really look forward to getting. My son also enjoys the pictures. You can't make everyone happy, but I appreciate what you guys do put out.Matt ShifferlyVia e-mail

I think you were getting defensive with those environmentalist wackos (Trail Head, May '07) when you should be going on the offensive. As the proud owner of three Jeeps (two working, one semiworking), I feel we need to promote the wonderful benefits of owning these fine vehicles to those poor, misguided folks. Here's how to explain things when they make dumb comments like:

* "Jeeps use a lot of gas." Yes! This means the oil companies need to pump a lot of that nasty crude oil out of the ground, thereby helping to keep it away from those pristine aquifers and thus protecting our drinking water.

* "Those gas emissions contribute to global warming." Fantastic! Global warming will relieve overcrowding in retirement places like Arizona and Florida. Baby boomers can then retire to places like Boise, Idaho, and Duluth, Minnesota, to enjoy many months of warm weather in the great outdoors.

*"Fools! Those Jeeps are creating greenhouse gases!" Great! Last time I checked, greenhouses offer places where you can grow good things to eat all year. So those folks living in Boise and Duluth can grow coconuts and bananas in their own backyards.

See? If you explain it the right way, all those enviro-freaks will want to go out and buy Jeeps to benefit our planet. "Then peace will guide the planets, and love will steer the stars. La, la, la, la . . ."John TaorminaVia e-mail

How come you guys don't feature many Grand Cherokees? I'm sure there are many people wheeling them. I own a ZJ. It is my daily driver, and I recently bought a 4.5-inch lift kit for it. If you wanted a four-door wheeling Jeep for the family before the JK Unlimited came around, the only thing that people could turn to was the Cherokee and the Grand Cherokee, so how about a little appreciation?Hector HerreraSalt Lake City, Utah

Did you check out the "Grand Master Flex" feature in the Sept. '07 issue or "Plush-Master-G" Grand Cherokee buyer's guide in the June '07 issue? Or how about the Grand Cherokee conversion ("Part Time," page 72) in this issue?
