I would only say goodbye if I rolled and totaled it----then it would become a buggy. I have lived on instant noodles, chef boyardee and hot dogs in order to have gas money for wheeling.


Sorry for your loss.

I had to say goodbye to my TJ. I bought a full sized truck. Missed my Jeep so bad I bought another one (this one a YJ). Truck will be used for towing duties now.

My girlfriend drives a Mini Cooper S, so when we need to go somewhere that requires more than a few highway miles, the Hemi truck and the Jeep get to stay at home.

I had to sell my baby when I went into college. I do a lot of highway driving, so I needed a car will good gas mileage, and could maintain 75 on the highway. I got a Toyota Corolla, it does a lot of good things, but I still long for my Jeep. A few more months until I graduate, then I'm off to the Jeep dealership

I had to sell my TJ when we found out we were having a baby. Even though we have 2 now, I now have a JK, we have a van for family duty and road trips to family.

Traded in my '06 LJ for an '11 Subaru Legacy because the Jeep was my DD and seeing more and more difficult trails on weekends. If it broke I was screwed on getting to work. Plus 12 MPG didn't help with a 20 mile round trip everyday. I lasted a little over 9 months and then bought the '99 TJ I'm working on now. Since the Subie is now my DD this time the Jeep is a fun summer driver and trail jeep so no worries about the things I sold the other one for.
