both, I think, didn't think it through. Blue Beauty is a great daily driver with full time 4wd and Onstar for Better_Half. Should've been two H3's. One with highway gears and smaller tires and one with part time 4wd and a strong front end for the jeeper. Toyota's design and execution are what they are. Less than a week with Blue Rubi and every day the satisfaction and enjoyment goes up. Did not notice any drive line hum like the H3 had even quieter than the redline lubed H3. Blue Rubi is quiet and still feels like a jeep. The H3 should've had the A pillars like the JK has. Surprised by the how much better the minivan motor is purring since the 6 on the odometer is approaching 300. Drove in the rain this weekend, BFG mudders were great, to Dallas for the Jeepfest and saw three Screamin Lizards, it was nice to know their history. The go pedal is hard to restrain and follow the advice of Arthur St. Antoine in Motor Trend " ... Wrangler: Go slow with pride." .

Ten days and 600 miles later still loving the rubicon. Gassed up Blue Beauty and it feels like a country cadillac, better_half sure has a nice daily driver. No a/c windowns down redline in everything and had to hit the go pedal to avoid them. Where did that burst of power come from that 3.5 motor. Got back and gassed up the rubi, saw a miata column all numbered up (rally) from Gaylord Texan. Then the idea that the base rubicon was like a sports car 4x4. We are lucky to have two great American products.
