I'm not buying another Jeep anytime soon. Every time I go anywhere, I take a company rig, and that's a nice option.
There's an old saying: the only thing better than owning a boat is having a friend who owns a boat. This is kinda like that.
Haha okay you got me there!
Im kinda the same way, part of me would like to buy a car, something with good fuel mileage so I dont take the Jeep everywhere, but why bother when I work at a dealer so I just borrow cars off the lot for long trips!
We had an Alpha Romeo Spider with a house my parents bought to turn around and sell..... Came with the house.... I loved that car.... but we never got it running... Ebayed to a Canadian trucker who brought his Semi to Va to pick it up for his daughter..... he said quote and quote...." Love these cars but I will be spending more time under it then driving it!" Get another Jeep brother!

Because I would never, ever need to climb under my 1980 CJ and fix things?
The Alfa runs great. Haven't done a thing to it yet. Weird, I know.
I drive Jeeps all the time. I just drive the work Jeeps. I only drove my personal CJ about 100 miles in the past two years. And it deserved a better owner.
But cars (yeah, I know, sue me) come and go. I've owned probably 6 Jeeps over the years, a few Samurais and a Scout. And that's just my fun "toy" offroad list. There have also been dozens of other cars and trucks.
I've never fallen in love with a particular vehicle.
I got caught cheating...on the Jeep. I bought an Alfa Romeo. . And a motorcycle.
Guy in my Jeep club did the same. Got rid of his YJ and bought a gorgeous Spyder. I have to say for as old as his is, it is immaculate and I wanted one. Couldn't get rid of my rig for one though.
I did kind of the opposite of you. I got rid of my motorcycle(s) and put the money into mods on my Jeep when I first started really building up my current one. I miss the bike, but don't miss worrying about going down on one or idiot drivers out on the road.
