That when I got in the Commander this morning after picking up my JKU last night I would revert to instinct and try to put my foot on the clutch, and all I could do was sit there and smile. Dang it is so good to have a Wrangler again with 3 pedals.

I paid about $420 from amazon with free shipping. I wouldnt say its a good price but its worth it to have the ability to run doorless when you know its gonna rain in an hour or two.

I've had to fix every pair of my husbands jeans because of this. He hates riding in my Wrangler because of it! (He has a Cherokee)

Wait? There's a toggle switch between the power window controls??

That I would never question someones choice of JEEP color. Before I was a Jeep owner I was so closed minded about the color of a vehicle! BLACK or NOTHING! When I would see a Gecko or Orange Crush driving down the road I would think what the heck are they thinking!! Well now I know! I am excited to see those "other" color Jeeps on the road! LOVE seeing the new 2014 colors too! Its a Jeep thing. I know.

X2. My family looked at me like I was crazy the other day when I said "that Dozer looks great. I think I should have gotten mine in that color."

Before owning a Jeep, I wondered why anyone in their right mind would ever even consider buying a vehicle in that color. Now, I kind of wish I had one.

Yes, what was I thinking when I ordered a Gecko green Jeep? It was the result of offroading with a rental in Sedona. I had my pick of colors and the green Jeep just grew on me. So I ordered my own Jeep Gecko color and boy do I get lots of approving comments from people who love it (I guess the haters won't say anything ).

The fun colors are just one aspect of what makes Jeeps so much fun and so personal. You can go conservative or colorful and go from there.

Loved it! We did Schnebly Hill, Soldier Pass, Outlaw and a couple others. The town is great too. Elote Cafe is not to be missed.
