First and foremost I want to say hats off to the boys in Toledo. They put together a fine machine.
I've been a Wrangler owner for about 50 hours now and have loved every minute of it. I got the Dark Cherry Unlimited Sport. I only have a lousy cell phone pic, so I won't bother sharing (you all know what it looks like). I've put about 80 miles on it and I'm averaging over 22 mpg. Much better than the 15.6 I got out of my '05 Ram 1500. I also called my insurance agent to make the necessary updates and found out my premiums will drop by about 25%. Nice, I should have done this years ago.
A month ago, I was convinced I wanted a Tacoma. After renting one for a weekend, I was dissappointed with the power/torque from their V6. Don't get me wrong, I still really like the look of the Tacos, but it was just too much of a step down from the 5.7L Hemi I was driving. The following weekend, I test drove a JKU and loved it.
I feel like I've just bought freedom to go out on the beach with my family without worrying about getting stuck. I can't wait to personalize it with a few low-cost mods. (Is a Jeep baseball cap a mod?)
Looking forward to learning and sharing ideas from the members of this forum.
