Kevin, yup did it quickly to see what a difference it would make, usually it'd be full resolution and more seamless but I figured that was too much like work :P

I think the Electra fame is too modern looking, I agree with the sentiment that the C5 would maybe make the best Military.

I was going to buy a CJ750 sidecar outfit before seeing the C5. I decided to go with something more reliable *cough*. I'd still love to get a military bike going, perhaps with a leather samurai sword holster for the front forks instead of a shotgun holster though :P Would be more practical.

Funny you should mention that, I'm actually looking for one that I can afford. Not a fan of driving automatic automobiles, as weird as that might sound. And I love Wranglers. Wish I could just find a cheap used one.

There's no such thing as a cheap wrangler. Especially if you use it as intended. I've had some of the greatest times of my life in mine but spend more time working on it than driving it. And I don't mean in the "let's tinker" kind of way, more so the "Why is the back seat on fire? And why is my new clutch burned up already?" kinds of ways.

I'll add onto the Jeep fire experience another day. ;)

My old CJ5 had a dash fire right after I put second gear back in the tranny, good times.
On the eighth day God created the C5, and it was better looking than anything on the planet.

My 2003 Wrangler has 133,000 miles on it. Doesn't use a drop of oil, original clutch, I-6 gets close to 20 mpg, one of the most reliable vehicles I ever owned.

If you wan't a Jeep, get a later Cherokee (not Grand Cherokee). My '99 was given to my daughter. The mileage is at 156,000 so far, and it will go anywhere a Wrangler will go. Cheap to buy, and probably the best SUV ever built.

I actually have a Grand Cherokee and it's a good vehicle aside from an elusive battery drain that I can't figure out.  I really like the look and feel of the Wranglers, though, which is why I want one so bad. I got my '92 Grand Cherokee for $1400, but can't find a Wrangler of any year for under $5000.

Of course, if I could get my hands on a Jeep Wagoneer with the wood paneling on the side, I'd be a happy man as well. I love that wood paneling. But then, my girlfriend's grandfather has a 1947 Willys Jeep CJ-2A fully restored in beautiful condition that's just been sitting unused in a hangar on his property for years. I'd love to try and "wrangle" that out of his possession. Maybe it could be a wedding present in the future :)
