hello from Az. new to was in the dealer back in january for a oil change on my jeep jk. and to the site, have my Rebel for 6 months, 5000 miles so far no problems at all. spotted 3 rebels in the parking lot. hour later i was driving home a red one. i have had dodge trucks before in Ny, but i moved to az 5 years ago everyone was talking jeeps. they are ok off road but suck around town or on the highways. i had a 2013 3.6 v6, after i had it lifted 3 inches and 35 inch toyo tires on it couldnt get out of its own way. 60 was about it on the highway no power at all. missed my rams i had in Ny. so im glad i go rid of that head ache and love the rebel. i go out to the trails next to the power lines , i can do 40- 50 easy, the jeep would of bounced off the road at 35. and a jeep lifter with tires get about 13 around town and maybe 16 on the road if you baby it. the rebel is so much better, i can even pass people now!!!!

Yeah, Jeeps are pretty lightweight and easy to bounce around. That's part of the fun. The short wheel base just adds to that. Not so great for highway driving, but a blast off road.

Congrats on the new Rebel. While the Rebel may not be able to go everywhere a jeep can, it is more versatile and stable on the highway.

Then of course its a truck with a bed and benefits from all the typical truck things we want which just about anything else can't do, even a Jeep truck conversion. Although to the typical city slicker it will.
