1946 Willys Jeep

If you’ve driven any of the new side-by-side off-road machines, then you know that they’re an absolute blast. They provide us with decent power, reliability and great off-road manners. The same can be said for the old Jeep’s of yesteryear. Be it an old Wrangler or Willy’s, these machines have not only stood the test of time, but have one thing up on the side-by-sides – they’re street legal. Dirt Every Day recently got hold of a 1946 Willys Jeep and a new John Deere Gator to see just which was more fun when the tarmac ends.

Wrangler Rubicon

The Jeep Wrangler in stock form is nothing short of an amazing vehicle. It will go just about anywhere you can think of, gets halfway decent fuel economy, and unlike the Wranglers of yesteryear, today’s Jeeps provide just about every creature comfort out there. However what if you want to traverse the deepest streams, climb the biggest hills and slog through the muddiest of mud holes. Well, in that case may I present the 2013 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 10th Anniversary Edition. A four-wheeling masterpiece that will do all of this and more. Motor Trends Jonny Lieberman recently headed up to Lake Tahoe in California to the Rubicon Trail to experience the awesomeness of the Rubicon first hand.

2014 Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel vs 2013 Volkswagen Touareg

Posted in Chrysler, Domestic Rides, Educational, European Rides, General, Jeep, Rides, Videos, Volkswagen by MrAngry | April 18th, 2013 | 1 Response |

Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel

10 years ago if you were to tell someone that they needed to pay over $50K for a Jeep Grand Cherokee, they’d probably laugh at you. This however isn’t 10 years ago, it’s 2013 and this new Jeep Cherokee EcoDiesel is hands-down worth every penny. Not long ago I had the opportunity to test drive the new Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel in Austin, TX and truth be told, it’s a wonderful vehicle. The 2013 Volkswagen Touareg is also a decent SUV. Not wonderful mind you, but decent. The interior feels bland and stagnant compared to the Grand Cherokee, but on the road it’s a little more compliant in my opinion. Motor Trend’s Jonny Lieberman recently got these two trucks together for a little off-road showdown and I’m happy to say that his conclusions about both vehicles were very similar to my own.

“The Ugly Jeep” – Dirt Every Day

Ugly Jeep

Every automobile enthusiast out there has that one car or truck that they look upon as their holy grail. It’s the vehicle that lit the spark under their bottom and got them revved up about anything with an engine. For Fred Williams, host of Dirt Everyday on MotorTrend’s Youtube channel, that vehicle happened to be a beat up 1951 Jeep CJ3a that he saw in a magazine way back in 1989. It was dirty and rough around the edges, but it worked flawlessly and acted as the off-road catalyst for Fred. Check it out after the jump.

Is there really a Jeep Wrangler in there?

Jeep Wrangler Custom

Living in California means that seeing raised pickup trucks and Jeeps on the road is very common. There are loads of off-road trails, dunes and deserts here that would satisfy even the freakiest of off-road fantasies. This modified Jeep Wrangler however (seen in Rabat, Morocco) completely takes the cake as far as the most outlandish custom I’ve seen. Apparently owned by a shaikh of the Arab Emirates, this it has an extended wheelbase, what looks to be 42-inch tires and a grille that came off of a Freightliner semi-truck. Is it cool? No, no it’s not. I do however have to give the guy an A+ for effort though.

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4×4: Ridelust Review

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited

The Jeep Cherokee has been around in one form or another since 1974. It was the first true mainstream SUV and the vehicle that got Americans hooked on the idea that there were other transportation options then the family station wagon. The big Cherokees of yesteryear roamed the streets until the Wagoneer went out of production in 1991, right around the time the Grand Cherokee came to market. It was smaller, lighter and more in tune with the now growing SUV segment, and since its introduction in 1992 it’s been a runaway hit.

1000 hp Jeep SRT8

If you would have asked me 10 years ago if you’d be seeing reliable 1,000 horsepower tuner cars and trucks roaming the streets I’d have laughed at you. Nowadays though they seem to be around every corner. Cars like the Nissan GT-R, Chevrolet Corvette and Dodge Viper routinely see these numbers and have been known to click off quarter mile times in the 8-second range. But what about a Jeep? Namely the Jeep SRT8. Back when they were released in 2006 these 5,000 lb all-wheel drive lumps came shod with a 6.1-liter HEMI V8 that made 425 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque. However with A LOT of tuning, some ingenuity and a butt-load of cash there are those who have managed to break the magic 1,000 hp number. Click through and check it out.
