Why do I liike our Wrangler?

My wife has been wanting a Wrangler unlimited for a long time. She had a nice Durango limited that was loaded with about every option. I told her I thought she would be disappointed in the wrangler. It wouldn't ride as nice, didn't have all the options that her Durango had, etc. We finally went to the dealer and came home with a brand new 2014 Sahara unlimited. It's loaded with about every option minus leather seats. We both love this vehicle! I really don't know why but it's just really fun to drive. It doesn't ride as nice (although, it rides better than I thought it would), it has kind of a bland interior, bad site lines, doesn't get great mileage, etc. All that being said, I find myself wanting to get another wrangler for myself. Starting to think Jeeps are addictive!

Welcome aboard and congrats! I believe his and hers would be advisable lol! And remember step one: get it naked (weather permitting!), get it dirty and play with it!!!!

Congrats on the new Jeep. to the forum. Jeeps are addictive and whether you have a CJ or a new Jk you are now part of a family. Remember to wave at other Jeeps. This will be vehicle that you will LOVE to drive.

I felt the same way when Mike wanted to order his jeep back in October 2012. By March 2013 I was stealing his jeep whenever I could get away with it. By June I had him accepting of the fact that as soon as the new blue for 2014 was released, I'd be ordering one of my own!

It's a great husband/wife hobby. We have such a good time working on our jeeps together, going to jeep club meetings and having wrenching parties. I vote for you going out and getting yourself a jeep, SOONER rather than later!

It's a hard top. My wife is stuck in the 80's with the big hair! I doubt she will ever take the top off.

I want to get her Jeep paid off before I buy another one. I will need to keep my truck since we pull a travel trailer. One of the wife's arguments to get a Jeep was that it can be towed 4 down behind a motorhome. We eventually want to trade the trailer for a motorhome. Then I can get rid of the truck and get a Jeep.

Ahhhh... Well, good luck with your planning then! My dad had a motorhome up until a couple of years ago and it was a blast! All the grandkids loved to go camping with grandpa, and they got to see some amazing places!
