Wife and I were together almost 28 years before we got our Jeep. Kept it for a good long while and sold it to our Son to drive. Went away from Jeeps for awhile, and right now I am looking hard and long at a new Wrangler. It would probably be in my driveway right now if the dealership was really looking to SELL one instead of fleecing my pockets.
Good Luck with your first Jeep!
