I give him credit for doing the comparisons. I don't understand why he saw the diff locks that are STANDARD on the Rubicon as an unfair advantage. Its a factory standard on that model!


The jeep is hands down the best off-roader available in the world today. Can't dispute that. I do agree it's limited for long journeys having been in one many times but it's also a lot more comfortable so there is something to be said for that in extended travel

That being said. This guy is always biased. But usually towards land cruisers lol

Good comparison. Despite its "faults," I'd still take my 110.

Though that Rubicon is running a VM Motori 2.8L vs the gas job here in the States.

I have seen the video before... And I think the jeep is awesome. My brother had one on 35's and it was great. But I want another defender...

Having seen that video (very good), I can't see myself in a Wrangler.

Noticed that he also has a TLC v Defender comparison.

Yup. Gotta love. Again fails to treat factory diff locks as a fair comparison lol


Yet. At the end, he says he would buy the Toyota Lol


Fun vids to watch regardless

We have two Wrangler Unlimited (4dr) Rubicons in the driveway. The model is the most capable factory produced option available. Also, there is no comparing the ergonomics of a soft top or the functionality of the hard top between d110 and JKU.

For those discussing long hauls, look at the options from:

Jeep Campers - Campers

AT Overland for fridge, shelving, storage, fuel, water options.

That said, I enjoy my 110s as well. When the time came to take a trip through 37 national parks, 19k miles, and living in/from the vehicle, Jeep was the selection. For weekend trips that are highlighted by roadside repairs and tuning my mechanical abilities, I take the 110.

We have both a diesel 110 and a JK Rubicon. Sure, the Jeep has a great HVAC system, removable hard top, very capable 4WD system, smooth/strong motor, and flawless transmission, but my 110 gives me more smiles to the mile (as well as miles to the gallon).
