Here is my buddy, Tony, with his Jeep he built. He owns an Off Road manufacturing company in Simi Valley called Genright.
BTW, NO RHINOS anywhere in sight.
Here he is on the cover of this months "4 Wheel Drive" magazine.

ARB's, coil overs, link suspensions, 100:1 final ratio drivetrains, 4 real seats, hear and possibly A/C will always dominate a rhino.
Yes, they are boring.
I would know as I have built many.
I worked for a guy that was into them and we built quiet a few of them.
I just never understood whats the big deal going over a rock.
Now if it was to get to bitchen fly fishing stream...or a hot gold prospecting place.
Then great, but to do it just because it's there?????
Sorry, don't under stand.
I think about 5 that I helped build made into mags, the others were to ugly.
But if you like it enjoy.......
Well, I have done Hi Desert Roundup in my old 1967 Scout (1348 RTI BTW...) and have done the extreme stuff for sure. MOST Jeep rides you go on don't include Refrigerator sized boulders, or gaps the size of a Rhino.
Most Jeep rides are with folks who 'wheel their stuff, but need to drive it home Monday. In that sense, Rhino's shit on them... period.
But for a built, pro-level rock crawling endeavor, you are right... Rhino's don't stand a chance.
But, anywhere my lifted FJ or your basic lifted Jeep are going to go, they will be going there hours behind the Rhino on the same trail.
