My gradfather was a WWII combat vet and used an old jeep on our family ranch in Texas for years. My dad and brother drive TJs, and I drive a CJ7. Together we have owned many jeeps including a Vietnam era military jeep, a jeepster commando, a cherokee, 2 jeep libertys (the wives drove these), 2 CJ5s, 6 CJ7s, 2 YJs and 2 TJs. So I would say yes, jeeping certainly runs in the family. Happy trails!
