Am I crazy for wanting a second jeep in the household?
Long story short I just bought a used jku. Love it no problems ect. The Mrs is currently in the market for a new car and while I'm helping her with the search I just can't find a better value than a second jk (she would be able to buy new) She is completely against it but for the life of me can't figure out why with the other car options out there for the money nothing seems to be close. maybe cause im just a Wrangler fan i dont know. Would you guys add a 2nd jeep to the household or is that overkill.
In September 2012, I picked up a Gecko JKU to replace a Ford Explorer. The wife took it over and drives it exclusively. I got tired of 11 mpg and parking my behemoth F350 4wd truck and I started looking around. Almost a month ago.I bought a JK/R.
I love the mileage, the ease of driving and parking, u-turns are a snap, and the soft top is far better than what I remember on my CJ5. The only problem with it is that when ever I go anywhere, my German Shepherd insists on riding along. He is certain that it is his Jeep.
I don't care for most of the vehicles out on the market and I don't want a Corvette [too cliche]. European cars are nice, but it is a 75 mile trip one way just for scheduled maintenance. The Jeep has the right amount of simplicity, driving enjoyment, individuality, parts commonality between vehicles is simplified, and I save in having to buy specialty tools to work on only one type of vehicle. Parts are easy to find and the dealership isn't at the other end of the County.

" or is that overkill. "
get in--buckle up--hang on

Bought our first jeep JKU in November, wife wasn't a fan but was very supportive of my midlife crisis. Now after 6 months, she loves it and wants one too! They are a great value, but mods X2 is going to put us in the poor house! But if it makes her happy, she can have whatever she wants, because if mommas not happy... Well you know the rest.
She wants winter chill, but jeep isn't making them anymore. She's hoping that hydro blue is a good blue color.
i have a 2013 jku my son has a yj and a samurai. We almost bought my wife a jku but ended up with a ford edge. So if shes not into jeeps prolly not because you have to live with her but i agree the value of jeeps are great.
If I were you, I would not... because I didn't buy the same.
I don't understand why people bought multiples of same cars or trucks. To me, it's boring, I want diversities.
As said, I have a Miata and a JKU to blast thru some curvy mountain roads or go offroad.
Yea not going force anything. IMHO just the cars in that price range 20s were everyday run of the mill boring cars accords camrys ect. The jeep just has more personality and functionality and with high resale value I figured she can trade it in about a yr and get what she really wanted because she really wanted a higher end car. We have a little one on way and her car unexpectedly went up beyond repair so we are just forced to buy something before we really wanted to. But oh well bottom line her choice, I glad to see so many multiple jeep households though
