    The Amarok fans with all the theories & excuses are really gonna hate this next video :-) http://youtu.be/GE_q-DBSb2Y

    The Sportage must be the ultimate 4x4, not the Amarok.

Sorry -but something smells. Please help me out here - what am I missing?
    In spite of the theoretical better approach angle of the Amarok, I think its front suspension is more dippy & soft core. It responds worse than a Bassett Hounds ears when he's running.

    That's what I've been saying all along.

    Willie, I'm not making excuses. I would just like to know the real reason why the Amarok could not go up that obstacle. I am just asking that some unbias expert gives me a logical and factual explanation because what I know about and personally have experienced with the Amarok does not add up to some of the things being said here.

    But - then again - it is probably not my place to argue with people that know better than me, so I will stop. My appologies to all.
    Then lets get someone from the forum with a standard Amarok go there to see what the issue is and to make a clip.. if it can do it then he can show XJ how to do it.. If not we can see why not.. That simple..

    Not fair, you okes are arguing while I am over my ears in work! I've had 6 hours sleep in as many days! One conference upon the next and this was not kind on the wallet!

    The Rok is a lovely vehicle as a daily drive, in fact I can think of nothing better for my own circumstances, but a challenge vehicle it is not, come to think of it, there is not a single vehicle you can buy of the shelf that will compete equally at challenges, not even the Rubicon or Cruizer (stock standard) will compete convincingly at most challenge events!

    Having said that I believe my Rok has an advantage over any other stock vehicle out there, it already has the scratches and spots in all the right places! Scuff under front bumper means that the driver has more confidence to play with the big boys, whether he will be able to do the obstacle remains debatable!

    No one in his right mind will take his own vehicle, of the show room floor and pull it through his backside, well most sane people in any case!

    If you want a comfortable daily drive that can do 99.99% of what you can ever expect from a 4x4, consider the Rok, if you want to do the other 0,01% better go and clean your garage and start building!

    With that, I've got a garage to clean!
    What a life!
