how many out there over 50
 
thought about this after reading another post I'm driving jeep #6 now 2nd wrangler, 1st was 95 yj bought need in 95. all this to say i'm 57 and wondering at what point in life do you start to think a caddie is what you need, I'm not there yet. but just thinking do I stop thinking about new mods at 60? 65? 70? are will I keep on jeeping on till 80?

Moabite 04-14-2013 09:15 AM

66 in less than 2 weeks...been jeeping for over 30 years...and plan to do it for another 30. Anyone who thinks any age is too old to enjoy a Jeep is just plain stoopid. My lifted '08 Tundra Limited is my Caddilac.

67 here!!!!:wavey: Don't even think about stopping yet!!!! But you might want to look for the Caddy to go with the JEEP!!!:D I am currently looking for a nice sporty coupe at this time. Not Corvette or Mustang/Camaro.
Cadillac doesn't make the El Dorado any more and Lincoln doesn't make any coupe any more; so I don't really know what I want. Just looking.
But the JEEP stays!!!!!

This is my Jeep:

Honestly, you're only as old as you feel.

Then again, the way my Jeep drives, the thought of it being piloted by a 98-year-old man makes me a little...nervous. :)

New mods to make life a little easier.:thumb:

Pennsyman 04-14-2013 09:24 AM

Turned 54 this year, and bought my first Wrangler, after wanting one forever. I could care less what anyone else thinks or says...never have, and never will...they live their life...and I will live mine. Hope to own my present baby a long long time...as for a Caddy....not even in the cards......the '68 Cuda I own is the ultimate time machine...though the Jeep is a pretty close second.

genesbro 04-14-2013 09:42 AM

Knocking on the door of 58 and still loving it. Don't think I will stop until I am unable to drive period. Maybe then I will be able to hire someone to take me wheeling.

ME ME ME! Ouch that hurt.

Dnjn123 04-14-2013 10:02 AM

Almost 56 here. After 6 years of driving a Jeep liberty I just bought the 2door wrangler that I have wanted for many years. no regrets!

55 now. I was 54 when I bought my first wrangler after wanting one for years. Bought it as a second vehicle, but I drive it a lot. My DD sits while I take the Jeep.

Mach2Plus 04-14-2013 10:26 AM

70 yoa this coming June--still flying, still enjoying my Jeep.

seattlepete 04-14-2013 10:29 AM

50. First Jeep. Now will have one till I'm 100.

danrb 04-14-2013 10:30 AM

55 here. Will keep moding as long as I can. The only question is at what point will I need a device to lift me up and put me in the drivers seat. lol

Remember, "Never give up, Never Surrender".

"at what point do you start thinking a caddie is what you need"

My other car is a Cadillac. Have you looked at some of the new caddies?
A caddie and a Rubicon is the best of both worlds when you're 65

Haha. Unless you're in a constant mid life crisis, then the best combo would be a mini cooper and a Jeep :dance:

Close. My girlfriend has a new Fiat 500 (sporty and 40 mpg) and a jeep. Personally, I think the best combo is a truck and a jeep. Cadillacs are for old people. :rofl:

However, there was a fellow in Moab quite a few years ago who lifted a Caddilac and installed a 4-wheel drive setup in it. I haven't seen it around in awhile.

Dynogyno 04-14-2013 11:17 AM

51 years young. First jeep last year and only regret not having one earlier in life. What other daily driver, loaded, with leather, etc... Can you take directly to the trails and have a great time? I have only driven my 90 Porsche Carrera twice since I purchased the JKUR. Still have half a life to live and plan to live it with a Jeep as long as possible.

Not quite 50 yet, but with the CTS-V's, Caddy has just now started making cars I wouldn't mind owning! Love the idea of a 4 door performance car with a 6 speed!

52.8 over here..... but who's counting :whistling:

Heywodja 04-14-2013 11:32 AM

Dammit.. I will be 50 in May, then I will be able to say I'm over 50.

Michigunman 04-14-2013 11:33 AM

52 here and on Jeep number 4 after about a 25 year hiatus. I'm sure there are at least 10 years worth of mods left on the list. After that who knows. Mine is not a daily driver though.

Jeep number 1 circa 1980.

Flipped it into a canyon and went up in flames, perhaps?

shipjim 04-14-2013 11:40 AM

67 this year. my TJ was totaled so Now I have an 09 JKUR. Love it can't wait to get to the mountains in CO and on to MOAB. Only comfort item is Corbeau Baja racing lseats, suspension for a better ride. We'll be driving it from Houston to Glacier MT this summer so we wanted som comfort.

47oldman 04-14-2013 11:44 AM

65 here never had a Jeep ordered a Rubicon 10A should be here next week. Had 3 H1 Hummers really like these Wrangles, Wife just got a Sahara Unlimited, I drove it and had to have one.

Beastmaster 04-14-2013 11:44 AM

At age 16, my first vehicle was a 1959 Willys Jeep Station Wagon: The worlds first SUV! :D

Must be my Dad, heaven knows I don't look that old.:whistling:

BTW Wolf, nice self portrait. :thumb:

JeeperJake 04-14-2013 11:55 AM

between the 'cremation supplies', the 'updated medigap plans' and the 'Jeep mods' catalogs, which mailers do you think I spend the most time reading?

One advantage about being a vintage Jeeper is not having to re-do all those mods that really didn't achieve what I had intended....
