Fine. You win. I bought a Wrangler.

The JK has been on my radar for a bit, looking for a 4 door vehicle that's not a monstrously large truck to commute and to haul motorcycles to the track, to the dirt and across the Plains. I put on about 30,000 kms/year on my bike, and I'm sick and tired of wasting limited vacation time and tires riding from Toronto across the plains to the fun stuff in CO and UT. Been there, done that, got the badge. Last time I was in UT, last year, I rented a Jeep and did some offroading...of course I was hooked.

Lease is up on my VW Rabbit in the next couple of months, so I went into a couple of local dealerships to see and to drive one on the road, just to see what it was like in a manual, in stock trim, and on the highway.

I came back from the test drive and the guy had the paperwork all ready drawn up, and I told him again that this is DAY 1 of what will take me months to finish - I'm JUST LOOKING

Well, what would it take to get you into the car?

I have lease payments - don't want to pay for 2 cars when I'll only be driving one.

How much?

$X.

I'll cut you a check, says he.

Goddamn it.

I have a black JK Sahara sitting in my work parking lot. And I'm going to blow off the afternoon to go for a drive.

You win. I'm in.

Hmm... I was planning on going in a month early to check things out and place an order. Sounds like that might not be such a great idea now.. grats on the new wheels!

Yup, it's that hard to resist after driving around in one. I got hooked after renting one to drive on the Outer Banks. Congrats!
