I know that parking lot...

I thought I loved all Jeeps. Even the goofy Jeepneys in the Phillipines.

But these seems to be lacking in function. You would never get proper articulation for offroad, and on road, the alignment nightmare would chew out your tires.

Seems like one of those "because I could" experiements,

With the option of locking out the rear 4 wheels this rig will motor down the highway at 65 mph

think they have that covered

Just because you can drive down the highway at 65 doesn't mean you won't chew up your tires. you have 4 axles that articulate. Locking them down doesn't necessarily make them align perfectly.

Whoa....

So what if you chew up tires... Congratulations. You have the same problem as every other exotic car owner in the world.

hey, at least the mechanicals are fairly common bits

it would be easier to maintain than, say, a citroen ds

Honestly I'd rather have the DS. Got DAMN those things are pretty.

Personally, I'd drive the **** out of that Jeep. It's been on eBay forever, I'm kinda hoping it comes down to $5,000 or so.
