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.
Agreed! I am 53 and just got my first jeep as well!! Your as young as you feel and I didn't know that vehicles came with an age limit!!
Never to old for a Jeep! I'll be 52 in July. Drove a CJ-5 in high school and enjoyed the hell out of it. Of course it also spent as much time up on jack stands as it did on the road. Sold it after I graduated and had to get something a little more dependable to get back and forth to work. I've wanted another one ever since, and finally got in a position to buy some toys, so I got my 95' YJ last summer. The wife likes it as much as I do, so she didn't mind when it showed up in the driveway one Saturday after she had gone out shopping
I doubt I'll own my YJ by the time I'm 40 (only 17 years away lol) but I will likely own whatever new generation wrangler they are on at the time. I seriously considered buying a new JK last fall as I liked its creature comforts and capabilities better then my YJ, but decided I did not want any car payments till I got my GTO fully restored. I have a bad back and the leaf sprung ride wasn't too good on it, but my recent lift kit made it more springy and comfortable luckily.
The JK is a beautiful mean machine.
'69 GTO drop top, have had for 7 years and done a full restoration on it.
1995 YJ, moss green with the 2.5/ax5 combo. 124K miles
youre never too old to own a jeep...im 66 and just purchased my 04 wrangler unlimited...love it..wouldnt drive anything else...my bride is 54 and she drives an 04 liberty...she also loves hers..but i think she would love to just take over my wrangler..which aint gonna happen....
Yep 57. I have owned most of the other cool toys, BMW, Audi, Porsche, C Cruiser, Land Rover (piece of crap). Bought my first last year and love it. I cannot think of another vehicle I would want )not one) The family loves it. So much so I bought my daughter one.
I initially questioned it but its for me and this is the way I roll. Ps all of the young sports I work with love my jeep
I don't think the jeep is an age specific vehicle. It's not a civic or a Buick which you pretty much can guess who's driving them.
I wished a had a dollar for the different types of people I have seen in a jeep, wow!
bought my first jeep when I was 17, pos beat up 47 willys with a 307 chev and 3 speed manual tranny biggest peice of junk I ever owned. (not the jeeps fault but previous owners) I am now 41 and just bought my first nice jeep, 2005 wrangler. I am glad I gave it another try.
