mountainsoul Good read. I've been really impressed with the road manners of my Unlimited considering its DNA. Much better than I expected.

Make Mine a Jeep

Extreemely well put!

I've driven Jeeps for many years... Well, sort of if you include Cherokees and Libertys etc. Dispite that, I've always had the yearning for a "Jeep / Jeep" ie CJ, TJ whatever. Although I can't explain it, I've always been attracted to "that" rugged look etc. Nevertheless, the one issue that always seemed to deter me from "making the move" was the lack of room / function. I just couldn't haul enough people / things etc. In late 01 I bought a Liberty that I still have and really like. Although it wasn't exactly what I "always wanted", it was very close to the look and function that I always sought with a Jeep logo on the hood. Not too long after my purchase, the 4 door "Jeeps" arrived and my yearnings for a "Jeep / Jeep" were back. I found this forum by accident several months ago and use it as a means to keep my desire alive for the purchase of one of these animals before I'm too old to drive. Visiting this forum is extreemely therapeutic! Anyway, my 02 Liberty now has 85K on it and although it has run wonderfully, at some point I'll need to decide to replace or immortalize it. Retirement and a limited / fixed income however could be a significant hurdle to clear but I'll keep visiting this forum and see if I can fulfill my long time quest. Oh, yes, it really is "a Jeep Thing" and not too many folks understand "it." Keep on Jeepen!

Make Mine A Jeep

From Car & Driver May-2010 BY P.J. O'ROURKE

Jeep Wrangler for his (or very often her) daily driver?
The question has been bothering me for 30-some years—ever since a rattle bag of us Car and Driver scribes returned, wet and aching, from a Jeep jaunt in the Michigan woods and declared that the off-road enthusiast was the new sports-car aficionado. The CJ-7, we claimed, was the MGA, the TR3, the Austin-Healey 3000 of the 1970s. (Why someone would choose a British roadster for a daily driver is another question, one that quit bothering me in 1998 when carpenter ants got the last un-museumed Morgan Plus 4.)

The Jeep Wrangler/Sahara/Rubicon makes sense if you’re crossing the Rubicon to get to the Sahara where you’ll be wrangling cattle. But if you’re using it to drop the kids at soccer practice, you’re nuts. And I say this as a brand loyalist. I grew up in Toledo, Ohio. I lived five blocks from the Jeep factory. My family had a CJ-2A, used to plow the lot at O’Rourke Buick and still in the possession of my cousin Mike. The dads of half my classmates at school worked for Willys, I mean Kaiser, um, American Motors, er, Chrysler, uh, Fiat and Barack Obama. I thought my bedtime prayers began, “Now I lay me down to Jeep . . .”
