16. You would be suprised at how many people tear up nature in a Jeep
And other vehicles, though Jeeps do seem to be their favorite. I've seem them rip over sand, soil, through creeks and up hills. It really is disgusting.

I agree about the need for 4 WD in bad weather, but there are other four wheel drives that are safer, use less fuel and are less polluting. Question, do you use your Jeep in times when the weather isn't bad?

Sorry, I'm not trying to be a nag or a scold, just pointing out that we all need to do our part concerning energy. I live out in the country and have a small 4WD pickup. When the weather calls for it, or I need to haul something, I will use it. Otherwise I ride my scooter through the countryside. I tend to look at everyday vehicles as more utilitarian than anything else. If I need a hauling vehicle, I use the truck. If all I need to do is move myself from here to there, I scoot along(though I do think two wheels are much more fun).

My next truck is going to be a diesel so that I can make my own biodiesel for it. Cleaner and easier on the enviroment :shrug:
