well I have racked up about 3500km of city and hiway driving.I havent taken it off road other than to check out the traction control and gearing.Both seem pretty good and I like the traction control.I really like it and its an excellent tourer.I just drove to the gold coast from Brisbane and its excellent on the freeway with heaps of power and it has used under 9l/100km and I set the cruise for just under 120 when in a 110 zone.Dont expect it to handle corrugations etc like a cruiser or other long wheel base rigs though.Not many mid wheel base 4bys do though..

Thatís good news, I'll have to test drive one soon. I actually don't like the fact they just really beefed up a Nitro a little and then copied the Commander front. However I would prefer a better ride and drive than the XJ offers. It will want to drive pretty good though I'm a bit over Jeeps poor handling and ride. The Commander has been a bit of a disaster in handling and ride as they share the one of the poor handing Grands suspension. If Iím not happy I may go to a 4X4 ute like the new Holden or Ford Ranger. Iím one of the Jeep fraternity thatís shifted from off road to mostly touring and I donít want to feel stuffed when I get thereÖ.where ever that is. I recently drove the XJ 4 hours to a fishing spot and felt like I had been driving and old truck all day and was stuffed by the time I drove home mentally from bounding around the bad roads I was on....
