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+?

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.

41, and my first jeep. I love it. Probably will pass it on to my son when he's old enough. Wait, I have two kids, so I guess I should buy another jeep soon :-)

When I was much younger, I made mods that were "good enough" to get the job done.
I'm 54 now and I make sure my mods are done well or not at all.

Nope, 40 is not too old to own a Jeep, but it's old enough to know how to do it right.

So I guess that kid thinks that 40 is too old to own a vehicle. Jeep = vehicle.

At 44, I can afford the kinda mods that the 20 year old kids can only dream of.

Kids should be seen......

Hi, Kids
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......

Got my first Jeep back in March when I was only 56! Man I love this thing and I plan on being a Jeep owner until my time on this world is over.

Are their Jeeps in heaven?? LOL

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!!"

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.

Too OLD???

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.
