Like they say at the end,"I could do that in a Pinto".
So like Top gear just no where nearly as good.I have seen those guys review cars before and it is more of a joke than anything. Not really anything factual. Usually one guy will drive one, gripe about something sports car is too sporty, off road vehicle has rough suspension, truck sits too high etc. Then they talk about it. Never found their reviews useful at all.
Right!!! Man I sure did love/miss the trooper and MonteroPretty accurate except he thinks the windows on the X are big? He has limited SUV experience or maybe he is too young to remember the Troopers and Monteros of old and their room . I dont understand his obsession with a manual trans though.
From TD website:I think some of you are really underestimating the trail that they were on. Trail damage rates it as a 4-6 [http://www.traildamage.com/trails/index.php?id=6].
To put that in perspective, I was driving up Cinnamon pass a couple of years ago, which is rated a 2-3, and saw an older person in a honda minivan with his front bumper wedged against a rock shelf spinning his tires. He backed up a couple of times and tried again but couldn't get over it. That rock shelf wouldn't have looked like anything on video but without adequate ground clearance, it just isn't possible.
I don't disagree with you. I'd like to see them use a trail with more rock crawling. My beef is with those that think they could take their stock family/economy cars up to the top.:banghead: There is no way.From TD website:

LHC isn't that difficult anymore. I would have been more impressed with him doing Bill Moore Lake or Cascade Creek. Those are worthy of showing the capabilities of the Pro 4X. I have done both of those recently as well as many other trails while living in Colorado.
Compared to modern designs, the X has large windows and excellent visibility. The FJ Cruiser and Hummer series all have tiny bunker-like windows compared to the X.Pretty accurate except he thinks the windows on the X are big?
