I live in an expensive area, more precisely in a rural area just outside DC.  Every weekend I see people out in full race gear, full race bikes, puttering around our country roads.  Out of shape, clearly don't understand their componentry.   I've stopped to help, they've come up  the driveway to ask for help before and chatted with them.  They know nothing about cycling or cycles.  They frequently are over educated under intelligent brand conscious government contractor millionaires.  They talk about what the bike is made of and what brand it is.  I point out that they're on racing bikes, not touring bikes.  Why would you be trying to bike for fitness on something designed to be the most efficient, comfort last bike? Do you go to the weight room and lift carbon fiber? I show them my stable (none are race).  They take them for a spin and kick themselves.    My primary ride has been a Specialized Globe single speed urban curb hopper on MTB slicks.   They all love it.  So simple, so functional.

This is more attention and care than a home builder uses building tract housing. Same deal. Probably get better appliances in the jayco... :)

come on everyone.. I think we can all agree that all RVs and TTs are built for crap but that more than doubling the price SHOULD decrease the "built for crappedness" of them.    Cheap is cheap, less wood is better, more steel might be heavier, but will make an approaching sturdy RV.  With expensive RVs you do get more, but like everything it's not proportional to the increase in price.

Did that stand up to travel on the road? Looks inflexible and fragile. Did you use weatherproof wood? Commercial construction is sided in glass/plastic aluminum for more reasons than weight and cost. Ive built plywood for outdoors/road... Never lasted long..

I think all of you are missing the point.  This is consumer reports.  They pretty much just bag on things.  Its how they attract an audience.  Idiots that pay attention to them keep them going.  .   

Same way fox gets viewers.  Make up a story people want to hear, or are scared to miss.  Best left ignored.  At very least view them in stealth fashion.  Don't forget they probably get paid for your views too.

Its garbage... like KBB and NADA-- recursive bluebook pricing.  Lets see... a pricing guide based on reported sales that are based on the pricing guide.... derp...

no, its simply putting on a different top.  I have "all of them".  A ton of bolts... seat belts.  Even the door seals stay the same.  The soft top actually is the "biggest job" and its not much.

Can't disagree more with the visibility thing.  I mean, yea, visibility is bad vs standing in the road.  But great compared to... well in my rather extensive experience, everything.  Everything has a high rear sight line now.  The belt line is low, the seats are high, the window pillars are, on the contrary, small compared to any american car and most european cars.

Yes, its a jeep, it does handle for crap and the steering is so numb, its hard to remember to stay on the road.  But, with the new wrangler, you don't have to adopt a lifestyle to drive one.  If someone was to "accidentally" buy a jeep, they could live with it quite easily.  though it would still help to be a "jeep guy".

One thing I've noticed since the popularity of jeeps skyrocketed with the JK-- With the jeep, you're not always in good company (read some of the more ignorant vulgar comments below or on the forums).  Much like sports cars and motorcycles (harleys in particular), its easy to get lumped in with the jerk/moron crowd.  People that put on a jeep/bike/car like a mask and try to live up to their perceptions of what that means.
 Probably not even most of them, but there's a stupid loud minority that throws rocks into windshields, drags mud all over the road and puts lewd stickers all over their windows trying to insult people for being upset with their rude behavior.  Please don't lump all in with them.  I don't even have any tribal tattoos.

The quality seems to be wavering, but the service is still top notch. Maybe they switched head cooks or something. Probably due for a refresh but its the only Mexican restaurant on this side of the state. Not up to south San Antonio standards, but best around.

Everything went pretty fine, problem is the same as all your bargain basement "ooooh I love puppies so I'm going to open a store" crowd. Animals come from the worst possible breeders. Mine came from one of those puppy mills down in arkansas. One of those that sells thousands if not tens of thousands of dogs a year, basically from chicken coops. Your other choice in the cheap puppy department is "back yard breeders'. Usually much worse than puppy mills. THat is, their dogs are treated for crap and they don't know what they're doing. Anyway, picked up the dog, seemed healthy at the time, but by the time we got home, he needed to be rushed to the vet. Several weeks and several hundred dollars later, he was fine. The store smells horribly. Don't let their hand sanitizer policy fool you, its a dirty place. But most are. Promised paperwork to go with the puppy, you know, breeding nonsense, but it never showed. I didn't track it down, because I really don't need documentation proving I bout a puppy from an arkansas mill. When I bought the dog I did ask about where it came from. They promised it wasn't a puppy mill. I guess most of their clients don't have the internet and can't track down breeders. I have to say, it was hard. THe breeder has to keep changing their name due to the constant assaults by peta. Dog came with a docked tail which was botched a bit so its crooked and the vertebrae seem to be fused, but he can sit. Prices were a bit higher than they should have been given the quality of stock and providence. Staff wasn't knowledgable to include the owner/co-owner, whoever she was. The lady in charge.

Standard dealer. Not good not bad (by dealer standards). Took me 4 hours from "i want that" to finally swiping my card. Ridiculous, but typical. Salesmen were friendly, and either they read my character well and didnt feel they could bully me or they just dont. The other customers didnt seem to be getting BS either. Had some of the typical bait and switch sale technique. But that looks to be Chrysler corp more than them. Great price was advertised, ended up being just about what customer sites called fair market value. Other dealers were making me fight for the price and couldnt make it.

frequent "2nd hand shopper" worst stores i've ever run into are maryland Goodwill. One up in millersville is barely ok-ish. Could take a lesson from "SAVER'S". Annapolis Goodwill is a junk heap. Worst ever, and I've been to just about all of em. Goodwill is on a quick slide. Anyone want a used up second hand store chain? Goodwill, what happened to you? As far as rude staff.

Very clean and professional looking place. Good parking, location waiting area etc. Facility is top notch. I didn't go in for a big repair, just some scuffs that needed buffing. They did it right on the spot for a great price. I went there due to recommendations from others that had been there in the past. Anyplace can buff your paint, but you want to go to someplace nice to do business.
