SolarYellowTJ 54 here. I bought my first jeep (a Grand Cherokee) in 1996. I am now on my third Wrangler and just ordered a JK 10th Anniversary Rubicon. I think I will own a Jeep until I die!

TooManyToys 57 here, on my 4th wrangler (had 3 TJs). Traded in my '12 Challenger R/T for the JK. Loved the R/T but it was so damn pretty I was afraid to leave it anywhere so it sat in my garage while I drove my POS company car.

That being said,
  • I was born a little over 54 years ago.
  • I'm in pretty good shape so I think my body is in it's late 30's
  • The best part is that when I'm behind the wheel of my Jeep I feel like I'm in my late teens

Couldn't have described myself better. Just turned 54 but when driving my jeep I'm ageless - especially with the top off!!

Our Sahara is my wife's DD. Before she bought it 4 months ago she test drove a 328i, among several other vehicles. You can see in my avatar what she ending up buying and she loves it.

She's also in her 50s.

My BMW sits in the garage too.. E90 M3 -- comes out to play on the track though.

Sorry for invading, since I'm 50 / 2.

Hooray for us with a "few more miles on the odometer."

I'll turn 51 next month. The first "new" vehicle that I wanted to purchase was a CJ many years ago, but we just couldn't afford it. Over the years I've had my share of "cool toys" (Z28s, Corvettes, an HD, and Crotch Rockets). Well, back in November, I finally purchased a Jeep! It's not about age, midlife crisis, or anything else. It's just having a vehicle that "fits me" and I enjoy owning, and the kids and grandkids all love it. Now I'm part of the "addiction", owning a "work in progress".

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!

chemicaljeep 55 here from KY. Just had both knees replaced. on my 5th jeep but who's counting. me and my jeep keep getting new parts

victor1955 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).
