As long as you can get in it to drive it, you are not too old.

Never too old

Never too old to own a Jeep! In fact it will make you feel younger!

45 years old and we just bought our first Jeep (97 TJ) a couple of months ago. I always said "someday" I'd get a Jeep but for various reasons I would not prefer a Jeep to be my primary vehicle...I would not want to be without a pickup truck. So the Jeep would have to be a third vehicle, and we just couldn't justify the expense for what would essentially be a toy

Fast forward a few years, kids grown, debts paid off, and finally starting to have some disposable income in the budget, and suddenly the idea of buying a Jeep seems not so irresponsible. We are finally at a point in our life that we can indulge some of our own wants instead of always putting other responsibilities first.

And it certainly helped that the wife was on board with the idea 😎

hey, it wasn't the experienced 4x4 drivers who kept going around corners too fast and turning them over, until the nanny government made them change into something that looks more like a squashed tonka toy than a CJ.

Ageless

I just celebrated my 50th, on my second Jeep. Drove a Mini Cooper S Convertible in between. The mini was a blast, but eveytime I would walk into the dealer, I would drop 1000 bucks. That gets tiring real quick!

Got my first one at 21, got the latest at 55. From my perspective 40 is pretty young

Another 40 years young Jeep owner here. Bought my first Jeep at 28, just bought my 5th last fall. Traded in a 1-year old Ranger Rover Sport that I "thought" I wanted. Definitely turned a lot of heads for people who didn't "get it" why I would make that trade. I just said I had finally seen, done, and owned enough to realize what I really wanted! I especially love heading to the airport in a suit with the doors and top off with all the Euro-boxes around me wondering who the nut is . Then after about 5 seconds you can see about half of them get that little jealous look on their face instead...
