Traded my Roush 427r mustang for a jk 4 dr rub. Couldn't get a car seat in the mustang. Took me awhile to get used to the sluggishness of the jeep compared to the mustang, but other than that I love the jeep.

Too many to list (I'm old!), but the one before the Jeep was a Honda S2000, which I still have. It's like driving two ends of a continuum...

Mine was a Saturn L. Before that, a Saturn S. And a Town & Country van which we still have, and which I occasionally drive. I can't see myself ever moving away from Jeeps now that I actually have one.

I traded in a 2006 ranger 4x4 for my 1st 2005 wrangler unlimited. Never looked back. Love this jeep and wished I had done this years ago. I also have a 2004 Mustang GT Convertible so I can go fast or I can go anywhere!!!!!

Okay I'm one of those "older" ones First car is right others may be slightly out of order

1968 Mercury Cougar XR7 (kept this one always - my older sister bought it in 1970 for her first car but I'm looking for another one as this one is to far gone)
1986 Honda Accord
1988 Ford Ranger
1978 Cadillac Coupe DeVille
1986 Ford Thunderbird
1988 Saab 900s
1996 Mitsubishi 3000gt VR-4 (miss this one)

1998 Ford Explorer V8
1997 Ford F150
1994 Ford Bronco (OJ edition )

I usually seem to keep about 3 vehicles around & won't even list my motorcycles. Some cars stay longer as others come and go. Also I like to buy cars that need some mechanical work and fix them up to sell, but I didn't list those

Immediately before I bought the Jeep I drove a Toyota Highlander. Prior to that an Infiniti G35, full sized Frod conversion van, mini van, suburban, and my first car was a '73 Ford Pinto.

nice looking stang. some of the most fun i've had on 4 wheels was in my 95 gt. it was a heads/cam/intake/nitrous car, made about 430hp at the tires, but it was really light. no a/c, no smog crap, interior looked stock but was gutted underneath. full suspension, longtubes, prochamber, dumped mac mufflers, 3.73 gear, drag radial, blah blah blah. 11.50 car on the drag radial. i put 96 style tails on it so the unsuspecting thought it was a first gen 4.6 (which were pigs back then), then i'd break them off some.
i'd love to have another stang, but i'm not giving the 55 up for one.

2000 Merc-Benz E320 4Matic 62kmiles...
i bought a street bike last summer and just needed something to get me around in the snow, but having a 4x4 convertible seemed like a fair trade...
so i traded my car in on a 2010 JK

Anyone ever try and fit a street bike in the back of their 4dr jeep? i know towing it would probably be easier...

I won't be driving my first Jeep until later this year but I'm currently driving a 2008 Dodge Dakota. Great truck but too large for me and the ride is horrible. I felt like I was driving a Cadillac when I test drove a 2011 Wrangler.
