What was the first thing you wife said when you brought home your new toy?

The first thing my wife said when she saw my jeep was.....Are you crazy? She didn't know I went out and bought a Jeep. It was my very first jeep. I owned 17 cars prior to this. She wasn't expecting a CJ7. What did your wife, girl friend, mom, dad, husband or boy friend say when they saw you pull up in your first Jeep?

"I want one" she currently has a Murano. So I told her she can.have my bonus which I get in Feb to buy one. She is debating between a 2010 and a 2012. By then.will know a lot about the 2012s and can decide if worth price difference.

Mine said "When are you gonna lift it? It looks terrible stock!"

And "Why did you get yellow? Didn't they have an Orange one in stock?"

Mine said "Are you happy now?" & "Will you shut up about the Jeep already?"

He was with me when I bought it. I'd been bugging him for months.

First she said "I thought the last Mustang was your mid-life crisis!" Now, every time it's nice outside she says "Let's take the Jeep!"

She knew I was going to test drive it but wasn't surprised when she came home from work and it was sitting in the garage.

So she said...

I knew you were going to come home with a jeep when you left this morning.

LOL! We went looking for a second car for the wife, a nice econo box like her last one.
Soon as we hit the lot she made a bee line for the Wrangler sitting there.

It was simply "I WANT IT!"

Never ever argue with Momma!

The best thing about mid life crises is you get to have them as often as you want.... I've had several, and enjoyed every single one.... TJ was my most recent... Lord knows what the next one will be....

Hey, check my sig. I have 'em all the time. The wife won't cooperate enough though. When we bought her Monte, she wouldn't let me upgrade it to the Earnhardt edition. I think she suspected I'd "borrow" it too much. She was probably right. It was a a supercharged SS.

When you refuse to grow up, life is more fun!

She found it for me. She was out with my son looking for new Wrangler for him. He found his, then she saw the used low milage 98 sitting there, and she gave me a call on my way home from work. That dealer had a double sale. All in one package, mom drives a hard bargain.

Verbatim what my wife said (had a 4 dr Tacoma). We had just had twins about 3 months before I bought it....beside herself.

But now. Twins LOVE it, she "enjoys" it.

My wife found the first and third (current) TJs for me. I found the second. The fact that we have purchased three TJs, two of which she picked out...says it all right there.
