Well we started harvest today and after riding my Wing all summer that Cotton Harvester shore is slow. About 2.5 to 2.8 mph, almost as slow as the Jeep we use to have. :?

No it is kinda cool cause it has a guidance system that drives it through the field so I guess you could say I run all day with no hands on the wheel, all I have to do is set there and make sure everything is working correctly and turn it around on the end. 8)

Jeeps are good for what they are designed to do. Go slow over rocks streams and desert. Even that title they lost to the Hummer. But for highway use,face it,they are rough riding,suck the gas, uncomfortable,high center of gravity thereby easily tip over and are unsafe in most collisions, and rattle, oh boy sounds like just the vehicle to take my family accross the country in.

HA HA HA :D :shock: :D :shock: :D :shock: :D :shock: :D :shock:

All the Exact reasons why we enjoyed ours and the exact reasons we got rid of it. It is cheaper to rent one when we get to the mountains than to own one. :lol:

Some people are just too big of a ***** to handle a Jeep.

JEEP.... American made in Toledo, Ohio since 1941.
And I wonder how much is now actually US made content??

HD - American Name, 70% foreign content

Honda Goldwing - Foreign Name, 90% US content


This information and $5 will get you a cup of coffee at Starbucks :shock: :wink: :roll:

I'm just zooming around my farm on my John Deere when I kick it up into high gear. I can actually break 13 mph going down a little grade with a good tailwind. :D

I figured that. :lol: That's why I'm staying out of the Jeep debate. Otherwise I'd be here saying how smooth, dependable and reliable my GC has been and still is with almost 125,000 miles on it and how it would destroy any Hummer out there!

But since I'm staying out of it I won't say that. 8)

Got to ride with my neighbor in his new CAT combine the other day. WOW!

Talk about amazing technology, comfort, speed, abilities, & size!

Ended up with a flat up front (WOW AGAIN) but could not believe how fast he ran that corn!

When they mentioned something about $1500 per tire I did think of my E3's
