Jeep - 4months old - 12K miles already!

I'd like to thank everyone on the board for the awesome amount of info and insight about Jeep ownership. I went from a Mustang GT to a 2013 JKU. It's my first Wrangler ever and I am loving it. The wife and I have taken it on several long road trips in just 4 months. I am about to turn 12,000 miles already. No mods yet except black locking lug nuts and locking hood latches. I work in downtown Memphis so the locks are just a security blanket for me! I scoured this forum for several months before my purchase. Great info!

12,000 in 4 months? Do you drive it to the bathroom?

Welcome! I am surprised at how many miles I have put on mine. I went from about 10-11k per year on a vehicle to already 10k in only 9 months since I bought mine.

I have had mine 6 months and have 12k on it. I bought mine to drive, not look at.

And congrats on going from a chick car to a jeep.

I have been traveling a lot more this year. I used to put 30 to 30k a year on my vehicles. My JKU is almost 8 months old with 9300 miles. I love driving it but just dont have to drive as much as I used to. It will probably get 15 to 16k on it this year. That is very low for me...but like others have said...I bought it to drive it..not to make a garage queen.

I've had my '12 JKU since 30 April 2012 -- just shy of 15 months -- and already have 19,800 miles on her. Meanwhile, I've put less than 4,000 miles on my F-150 in that same time period. Needless to say, I drive the Jeep everywhere....and the truck is now for sale if interested.
