Now that I've purchased my second Jeep, I suppose I should stop lurking and start posting. So here's the story:
Jeep1 - 2003 Wrangler Sport: Bought this online 5 or so years ago to replace my wife's aging Cherokee (you seriously can't kill those things). Couldn't find anything we liked in town, So ended up buying the bee from a dealer in Utah. Decided to make a trip out of it, and packed our tents and sleeping bags and headed to the airport. Picked up the Jeep, checked it out and started driving. Drove over to Colorado then down through the mountains, getting lost on dirt roads and driving to the nearest green triangle on our maps to sleep. Took about 5 days to get back home to Houston. Best trip ever.
Jeep 2 - 2013 Wrangler Unlimited: Fast forward to today, and with our first little one on the way, we've come to the sad realization that a 2 door car just isn't practical. So naturally we traded in my old honda and got a 4-door jeep.
2013 Unlimited in Orange Crush. Manual trans, connectivity group, 3.73 rear end. Totally impressed with how far these things have come in 10 years. First mod will probably be the n-fab nerf bars, so the kiddo and 5'2" wife can get in the thing.
You think the upgrade bug is bad with one jeep.... may Quadratec have mercy on my soul.
