55 and on my second jeep. Wife and I drove #1 ('94) it till it was beyond rust recovery. (Insert mournful music here) . We still have the tags!

That kid just doesn't understand jeeping is ageless.

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

61 years old. I learned to four wheel in 1970 in an M-37 in a place in Alaska that had no roads. The US Government owned it.

The Jeeps in my signature that I presently own are #'s 5, 8, and 9. Somewhere in there I briefly went to The Dark Side and owned a K5 Blazer. In any case, 42 years of four wheeling.

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.

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

If you are 40+ you shouldn't have a Jeep. Maybe get yourself a nice Buick.

I learned to drive at 13 in an old 1942 Willys. Had another in my 40's and at 51 just got a JKU Sahara.

Am still wondering what I Jeep I will be driving at 80. Tell the Kid to go make love to himself.

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!

A very sweet little old lady, I'd guess 65 minimum, gave me a very hearty Jeep wave this morning.
