My concern is I really like the stigma of Bronco's being that Big, Tough, Workhorse. I was in the military working on the Humvees before they were offered to the public. They were one badass ride. We beat the crap out of these things and they took everything we dished out and more. I thought they would carry over the attitude into the private market. I think they totally got it wrong and sissified the brand. I no longer think of the Hummer of this badass capable rig that would totally run your ass over. I think of a shinny chromed out H2 running 24" rims......Kind of the same thing as a Escalade.
Jeep does a good job walking the line between tough and pretty. I guess that is why they are successful in the market.
