Well, I am 41 and this is my third Jeep in 15 years. Although, for what it's worth I suppose he's right- I don't own a Jeep, the bank does because I am busy working, maintaining a home and supporting a family. But someday soon, I hope again to own a Jeep
I wonder, if this kid likes Jeeps so much, I wonder what he hopes to drive when HE is 40+?
2013 JK Sport, Crush, 2 door, auto, soft-top
Mods: Stock for now except ACE sliders. (Building the wishlist)
2000 TJ Sahara [Destroyed in 2012:Hurricane Sandy RIP]
1993 YJ SE [Sold]
While I've owned a previous Wrangler, I wasn't in the proper frame of mind at that time. Once I hit 56, I realized that I needed a Wrangler again and with a granddaughter around, the 4 door made all sorts of sense. I'm now 58 and my '10 Wrangler has 130,000+ miles and I'm positive that I will own one until I'm too old to drive.
If someone tells me that I'm to old to own a Jeep, I'll beat the little b*st*rd to death with my cane while laughing insanely.
It's not about getting out of the Storm, but learning to dance in the rain.
When I die I am going to be buried with my Jeep, cause I haven't yet found a hole it can't get out of!!!!!
06 TJ Rubi 4.0 and alot of other crap
My wife and I celebrated my 72nd birthday by buying a new 2006 solar-yellow LJ Rubicon. We hope to spend some time in SE Arizona soon to try to get a feel about whether Wyatt Earp really did kill Curly Bill......
Never put off until tomorrow that which you should have done yesterday.
I crack up with High School and College kids say, "I am broke and on a tight Jeep budget" Yeah, well I am 43, married with Kids, work full time, pay a big mortgage, and I too am "broke and on a tight Jeep budget".
Same here The only difference between me and them is_______ I Wouldn't have it any other way
nope after thinking about it,, 40 and over are just to damned old , --lol-
the first standard i ever drove was an old jeep seems like it had the 3 on the tree, and then there was the golden eagle,, never forget it it was white with the blue stripping of course it was new then, lol, i have been hooked ever since...
yep he had jeep envy,im sure of it, if you see that kid again take him on a little ride..
he,ll be hooked fo sure...
i let one of our tennents kids, 15yrs old drive my 5 speed yj (first standard he ever drove) and he is hooked , i told him i would teach him how to drive it , of course this is in 1 of our horse pasture,s---
66 here and I had a young guy with me last summer asked "Couldn't a guy just walk up that hill?" And I replied "Yeah, but you'd probably fall off and I would have to drive around you and winch you to the top!!"
Experience= What you get right after you need it the most!!
43 and just starting to feel like Im able to Jeep properly.
Youthful enough to pursue the fun parts.
Responsible enough to be able to afford my own habbit.
Mature enough to take care of it once I have it.
Old enough to appreciate the fragility of health and happiness.
Besides....I've always though that once they swing up into a Wrangler...EVERYBODY is 21.
It's like an all-terrain time-machine.

"Hope" is NOT a strategy
I'm 58 and just got my FIRST Jeep. I handled old Broncos for many years in some extremely stuff deer hunting. And I plan on playing with this Jeep (and maybe some others later) for many years ... Lord willing.
