So I picked up my new Rubi Unlimited last weekend & am getting used to a plastic dash, Nav, AC, remote start, and power windows in a Jeep of all things. I think I can make that conversion. Eventually. But there's two things I just don't get about this Jeep:
1) The V6. What a pathetic POS that is.
Can't even get out of it's own way! I was planning for a Hemi a couple of years down the road, but it may need to be soon! After reading the posts here on the Superchips Flashpaq, I ordered one & hope it will at least tide me over a while. Man, this V6 is a joke. What were they thinking, and who the hell decided to put that in this (otherwise) Sweet Ride?
2) The cupholders. Yes, the cupholders. I'd be perfectly OK without them - it's a Jeep! But if you're going to put them in, can you make them hold more than a shot glass?
Who drinks from a can anymore? It's at least a 20oz bottle, or a 44oz or bigger cup. I know, I know - it's just a damn cupholder..but c'mon - cupholder science is one of the most advanced areas of research in all cars built in the last 10 years!! Tuffy is in my future, but again - didn't know I needed those mods so soon!
So tell me - what's the history on each of these? (Particularly the engine)?
