first car 92 lebaron convertible - in a baby blue.
then a 97 fort taurus - a real POS
on to a 01 saturn sl1 - learned I never wanted a car with out P/W and P/L
then what was my favorite 04 Monte carlo - wife hit a parked car for me
I then got to drive her 98 oldsmobile, she got the new car, joined the army sold the olds, drove a 94 BMW 318IS fun car - pos, wife sold her new car and got another new car, Put the BMW to rest and got a 04 kia spectra, sold that for way more then I payed for it and am picking up my jeep when we get back to the states.

Toyota Tacoma - 1st Owner, wheeled it close to 13 years. I've been driving a Jeep for 3 weeks. I won't lie. Every little thing I do in the Jeep gets compared to that Taco, and I haven't decided if I made the best choice.

I'm coming from a 2005 Chevy Colorado. 3 inch lift and 31 inch BFG mud terrain km2. The kicker is that it's only 2 wheel drive. Figured it was time for a 4x4.

2006 Outback 2.5XT - AWD pocket rocket. I loved that car, it did everything I ever asked of it. Traded it in ten days ago for a '13 Dozer JK Sport S Not regretted it yet, don't think I will...

There are 3 vehicles that I drive.

I purchased a 98 Acura Intergra new...of the lot 14 years ago.
I still drive it today. (It is what I drove to work yesterday....but I rode my motorcycle into work today). I love that car...and will drive it until it dies.

In 2005, I purchased a "fresh off the boat" Triumph Bonneville T-100. I love that motorcycle. It is a "forever" bike. I don't plan on getting rid of it....ever.

In 2008, I purchased a 2006 Liberty as a winter/tow vehicle. That is what I'm trading in on a Wrangler.

I will say this 14 year old Acura/Honda quality>>>>>>>> 6 year old Chrysler/Jeep quaility.

I got my wife a 2012 Lexus RX350 last year, and I currently have a 2003 Audi A6 2.7t 6 speed that I just finished going stage 3 with. I bought the Wrangler so I wouldn't have to drive the Audi every day anymore.

Jeez ... I started with a 1988 Olds Delta 88 Royale my parents gave me in high school. I eventually bought a 2000 Sahara off the showroom floor, which I loved. Got married, needed more space and had a few cars since then.

2005 Ford F-150 5.4 xlt
2005 Honda S2000
2006 Lexus RX330

Bought my YJ because a buddy of mine had one in high school and we drove it everywhere. He was a year older so had his license first. I knew at some point I wanted a green and tan YJ!

Honda Odyssey. Had it for 2 miserable years and the husband NEVER would drive it. I've had the Jeep for over a year now and love her more every day.

Had a 91 Ford F-150 for 5 years then went to a 2005 Toyota Corolla for another 5 years. I sure am glad to have the jeep now.

Prior to purchasing my JKU, I had a 2012 GMC Terrain for about 4 months. Loved the Terrain as it was fully loaded and more luxurious, but we always wanted a wrangler. The fiance currently drives a 2012 Fiat 500 Sport. Before that, I've owned couple Camaro SS's...

1999 Cavalier Z24 Convertible (first car)
2001 Camaro SS
2004 Cavalier Sport
2000 Camaro SS
2006 Saab 9-3 2.0T (Stage 1)
2012 GMC Terrain SLT

Here's my 2000 Camaro SS baby that I should have NEVER sold...

2001 Volkswagen Golf. It was my first car, and I drove the wheels off it for 6 years. Buggy & unreliable at times, but tons of fun, and I fell in love with it. Sold it to the neighbor after I cracked the head & watched him repair it and pass it on to his grandson.
I still love that car.

Got the Jeep in March. Love it more.

I sold two cars to buy my Jeep in 2003.


Great car. I bought it from Budget with about 8000 miles on it in 97 and loved it.


Fun car but had a new baby, no garage to keep it in and no time to work on it. Gone.

Got my TJ and never looked back. Love my jeep and it follows my theme of my last 8 out of 10 cars. Two doors.

Looks like a lot of ppl coming from trucks & suvs. I had a loaded 2000 volvo s80. Nice car but not very reliable. Had to replace the engine, some kind of computer module, and i swear the front lights are always burning out. Love my jeep tho.

Still have it as I am waiting on the Jeep Unlimited to be built, but its a 2006 Acura RSX typeS

bought it at 24, and really felt to old for it at 25. I do love it though, its really fun to drive. Its quick and handles amazingly through the turns, But its just time to move on.

The Jeep will just be a new kind of fun.

It was always my dream to have a jeep. B4 I got it I had a 2006 mercury mountaineer for 4yrs. By far the best vehicle I have ever owned. The space the ride IT'S TOWING ABILITY. funny story, my husband owned a jeep while I owned the mountaineer, he would go out muddin and stuff....I would get a call that he was stuck....I would REVERSE into where he was and them pull him out...HAHAHAHA I loved my truck. So I put this on it just to bust his balls. I could see other jeepers laugh and shake their heads at it.
