    Default Remember When?

    Here is a link to a review Doug Demuro just released. He came across a 1993 Wrangler with only about 25k miles on it. I enjoy his reviews. Hope you do too....

    2006 Jeep Wrangler X (TJ) - Stock.... except the 31" tires... just stock...
    ...oh no, wait, I bought a new top for it and also put up a sticky led light on the interior roof as a dome light and i put my first sticker on the body.

    Cool, thanks for sharing! Reminds me of all the reasons the Bronco was better than the Wrangler in 1993.

    Mostly stock but it was awesome from the factory anyway.

    Cool

    My best friend had one in red and there is a red one in Northwood Salvage. Never cared for the styling, but very cool to see old stuff like this. Thanks for sharing Dean :)
    Traction, articulation, and gearing make a good off-road rig. Just a big lift, wide mud tires, and a winch simply do not ;)

    There is a red one of these on Winter Street in Claremont, been there for years. I agree, the styling is appaling, but still cool people keep them in this oe trim.

    a fun review but too nit picky at times and condescending at others.

    I watched a couple more of his reviews and he's definitely weirdly nitpicky.

    He reviewed an XJ Cherokee, and could not stop talking about how all the trim pieces had exposed screw heads, and the rear seats having no headrests, and how these were such wild and crazy Jeep things.

    I also watched his review of a Lambo Countach and he did point out that the sun visor mirror was a small detachable mirror for "whatever you might need a mirror for. In a Lamborghini. In the 80's." wink wink.

    apparently he didn't pay close attention to GM in the 70s & 80s (really anything that was pre-plastic interior) ... Nearly everything had screws... how else did you expect everything to stay together... those were the days... FAR easier to pull a dash apart than today.... (squints at dash center stack) '... now how teh hell did they get THAT to stay together... where do I pull to get it apart?!?!...'

    Yes, YJ only with the "Renegade" package.

    The over the top personality or whatever you want to call it has been his thing on all his videos. Been watching them for a few years now, more entertainment than informative. Sort of reminds me of the gonzo style of guys like PJ O'Rourke.
