53 year old gal here just ordered my first Jeep ever a JK Sahara, (manual tranny too!) trading in my BMW hardtop convertible for it. All my girlfriends just shake their heads like they think I've gone off the deep end.
But when I mention my new Jeep to the guys... Every one of them say the same thing, with a little look of envy "I always wanted to get one of those!"

I parked my 330i when I got my JKU Sahara months ago. I havent been in the BMW since. Although it was a fun car to drive, the jeep is tons more fun.

I'm old enough for AARP but I can still pedal a bike over 400 miles in a day, so I don't know that a biological age means all that much. As others have said, you're only as old as you feel.

Just sold my 2000 Porsche Boxster S and bought a 2013 Wrangler Sport. I think it is a much better fit for this 56 year old.

That's an average of 16.66 miles per hour for 24 hours straight. I'm 62 and last rode 60 miles in four hours, and might have road another 60 miles before I called it a day, but 400 miles in 24 hours is something else all together. Not saying you didn't do it, but I'd have to see it to believe it

My midlife crisis at 57 ('13 JKU Sahara). On of the coolest vehicles I've owned other than my '69 Wagoneer when I was 16.

I know this isn't certified proof but here's a pic of my best effort from a 24-hr race I did in Iowa a few years ago, drafting wasn't permitted. I spent about 42 total minutes off my bike during the race. A 24-hr event is...umm...fun, if you've never done one before. I'm not good enough to win, I just try to beat my old record.

I think the winner pedaled about 470 miles that year.

I am not 50 and won't be for 17 years but I figured y'all might understand this more then lots of the other people on here.

Back in Feb me and my best friend were coming back from an offroad event in California. It was a 23 hour drive for us each way so we had plenty of time to talk. We had an older guy pass us on an Harley and we both had a laugh about the whole mid life crisis thing. Then we got to wondering what the hell ours was going to be since we both have allways been the kind of guys that find a way to own what we want.

This was the load that we were hauling when all this was going on. and I don't have a clue what we will look like going down the road in another 20 years.

Sooo all that being said, to the "car guys" that allways worked hard and got what ride you wanted what did you do for your "midlife crisis" when it happened?

I have no problem believing it. I did a double in just under 10 hours on a hilly course with no drafting (A midsummer nightmare) so I don't doubt it at all.

We had a 02 Cadillac Deville. I bought a 2004 Rubicon when I was 54. Sold the Cadillac in 07. Just bought a 13 JKU. Is something wrong here? lol We love the Jeeps!! Duramax Silverado HD for the RV. Got rid of the hot rods, speed limits everywhere, no fun there. Wife is really into the whole Jeep thing more so than any other vehicles we ever had.

You are my hero or should I say heroine. I've got a MB C 280 that I'm seriously thinking of trading in on a JKU. I'm about to turn 53, a woman... and if I do this thing, I will be getting a manual as well.

I'm 58, wife is 59 and this is our 1st jeep. We replaced her 2003 Nissan Xterra (that we bought new) with a 2013 Sahara Unlimitied. I drive a Mazda Miata. Went to the dealership fully intending to buy a Moab but because it's her new ride opted for the Sahara. Obviously there were things she liked about the Sahara over the Moab. I guess I did right because she keeps reminding me that the Jeep is the best vehicle she has ever driven (her last 3 vehicles, Xterra, Corvette, Mustang GT).

Ever since I ordered my new Jeep, the BMW has been in the garage. I've been driving the kids' car to save on mileage till I trade it in!

If you're trolling these forums, my guess is that you're doing more than just "thinking" HAH!
The BMW earned me 2 speeding tickets in three years (both of which I totally deserved!) so what fun is it to own a car I can't drive the way it was meant to be driven? I owned a full sized Bronco about 10 years ago and absolutely loved it. I miss that "go ahead and pull out in front of me, I won't even feel you as I run you over" feeling. No need to speed in that beast!
Plus, I'm tired of trying to see around the car ahead of me!
