    How are you liking that Jeep Watt? Did you think it was as capable as you've found it to be, or have you not really tested it yet?

    hi Joe,

    it's one trick pony as I mentioned earlier but a very good off road disposable - the bic of 4wd, flows away in a river or sinks in quicksand and not much is lost.  It goes everywhere,  here 12 miles in, on a nasty track in the Molesworth.

     

    IMG_4283.JPG

    On the highway, it's marginal up to 120 kmh on a straight and dangerous above.  Very little linear or cornering stability.  Since every 4wd skirmish way back in usually involves and hour or more of highway slamming to and from, Sun has ordered an SVR for next year as a more reasonable compromise, although he will have to wash the salt water off from the beachSmileySmileySmiley

      Also as previously mentioned the Macan turbo was an absolute flop;  did the road well, but useless on the tracks.  When I asked Porsche mgt.  to produce a real 4wd, they said who cares, the soccer mommies are buying masses of macans and cayennes.  So really only RR does both tasks well.

    Watt, I drove the Cayenne on the Porsche obstacle course in Atlanta and it acquitted itself very well. Went through deep mud even on severe uphill inclines and maintained its stability on downward sidehill roads. I was very impressed.

    However, I do agree that the RR is the SUV for slamming in the outback.

    Thanks. I've heard the ride quality is terrible but they are obviously capable off road. It's hard to find one that can do both well, but your SVR should do the trick. Only problem is, you don't want to lose that one in a pile of quicksand. Smiley As for utility only, the HiLux / 4Runner is an option as well. A step below the SVR but you can option them up pretty nicely.

    el Yeep has 5 dots of service so the tide table on the screen.  Did this run half before to half hour after low....   Make a mistake and you loose your rig here as you noticedSmiley

    Another olde fryende;  the wilde and crazee kittee of Pohara yumped in the Yeep just like she did the MT last year...  Was that part of the 20,000 views we lost in the crash?  Anyway, she is an institution.

    Seeing your Jeep on the tidal shores reminded me of this: stranded utes are so common on the Kimberley coast Australia that local artists do cutesy paintings teasing those who don't understand tides.  Locals in Broome told me many strandees are American visitors who glance at the tables and read 11 as feet - they are 11 metres in this region.  I would guess that this is a good yarn at Americans' expense... better than admitting the flooded utes are locals who have had too many beers...
