You hit the nail on the head!

The Land Rover Discovery is now "suburban mom and emasculated dad rated".

Guess you haven?t been to Uwharrie - it has plenty of tough trails and even the easiest are a cluster when is wet. Red clay might as well be ice

Yes it's on the ATV. Ran much worse in the Jeep. Also, the 2/3 year old kid was straped in front of me on the ATV here and always. Great days.

If I felt a need for something "armored", I think I'd just snag an armored late model Suburban for like $25K. We use them at work regularly and run the hell out of them high speed on the racetracks. They hold up quite well. Cheap/easy to fix, maintain and upgrade too.

But when Toyota has Ivan Stewart driving up some rock trail towing a BBQ trailer as their spokesperson and Land Rover has a few bi-curious fellas towing a glider - well, it's all you need to know about the direction of a company.

Whoa there turbo, you've over corrected and taken us full circle back to cringe-worthy.

I like how the "rooftop tent" is just a massive $80 Ozark Trail tent pitched on top of the box.

They may be fairly simple and reliable, but they're support vehicles designed to operate within a matured supply environment.

He's not.

It can be done, but accomplishing it is irrelevant.

There's more to changing a tire, or even just swapping a wheel out, than simply getting it done.

Those vehicles are very, very poor choices for such purposes.

Cheers,

Kennith

I guess you use your uber-tactical machine gun to shoot off the old one, then MacGyver a new one on the rim before the zombies eat the flesh from your miserable bones. Have bro Bubba cover with firepower while performing the deed and deploy a safety perimeter to be sure. Oh, and make sure to wear some patriotic shit, like a shirt denoting your militia everywhere you go as a preventative measure against flat tires in the first place, because that would make as much sense as owning the thing in the first place.

That said, if you go for it, be sure to get the best Ozark Trail tent WalMart has to plop on top when getting beauty shots for "the 'gram."

Do I detect some anti-redneck sentiment in that first paragraph or am I reading that wrong?
Great use of punctuation on the last two words by the way, most people get that wrong.

I think it's anti-those-kinda-people.

If rednecks represent the bulk of that, such is life

And yes, it's sad, apostrophes aren't that difficult.

No, there is no anti-redneck sentiment intended with my post. I can see how "Bubba" might trigger that connotation, though I am referring to the goofball tactical mall ninjas that buy gaudy stuff like that.

Thanks.
