Been looking into getting a small jeep as a toad. After reading this, am having 2nd thoughts.

Army surplus Jeep!

No software to hack.

With the Army and Marines getting ready to dump the Humvee for a new ride I wonder if AM General will cut them loose for sale to civilians.

Multi fuel, armored, low or no tech software, MG mount......

Gotta watch the small Jeeps. We have a '15 Renegade and it CANNOT be towed - 4 down or 2 down/dolly. Upset the DW a bit, since she just got her Renegade shortly before we bought the MH. We found an older Liberty (great shape, low miles) and we couldn't be happier.

Have been releasing them for a while. Not "multi fuel". Straight diesel. No armor. Soft skin trucks. No machine gun mounts. Nothing wrong with tech either

I saw a news report about a week ago about how thieves are using electronic devices to steal codes on newer vehicles. They said the best deterrent, for vehicles with electric key fobs, is to push the lock button on the fob 3-4 times when locking. It resets the codes and messes up any device that tried to steal any codes.

We bought a Jeep Unlimited almost a year ago. No problem towing. Short set up...done.

As far as stealing something, don't sweat it. If somebody wants something bad enough they'll get it. We've had no trouble whatsoever.

The only thing that kills you with a jeep is all the accessories they think you need after your purchase, then to make sure you don't get junk made in China masking as OEM.
