I say because it was big, can fit 8 if I want to, but not to big it can't do some serious off roading..... pretty much the perfect platform to wheel in comfort.....oh and had a solid front... a must.
Other vehicles I was looking at were a solid front suburban, jeep grand cherokee and a land rover disco.... disco was out due to reliability problems, suburban was out due to it's overall size (but I still might get one for a tow vehicle). Came down to the lc and the jp. went with the lc due to seating capacity and the fact that no one I new had one.... yet (my friend now wants to get one)
yep and I can't say that i'm happier with it... sure i've had to work on it a lot but that is mostly due to the age/miles of the rig and not knowing the history on it so well..... and also the po forgetting to mention stuff like the a/c compressor missing and such... oh well still a badass rig for what I paid for it
