Great Pictures Bob. Looks like fun. Not much like that here on the east coast. Like you say, it all depends on what you want to use your Jeep for. That is why they make some many different models. We have both my Grand Cherokee and my wife's Liberty for different reasons. She has started looking at the New 2014 Cherokee and I must say it is some Jeep. I have looked at the Utube on how it performs, even for your kind of off roading. It "might" even be better at it than the wrangler. I just said that because I know how my buddy reacts when I tell him things like that about his baby.
