Considering first Jeep, from California

Hello all,

I'm considering buying my first Jeep. I'm looking at a 2014 Wrangler Unlimited. It will be weekend/camping/mountain car. Wife isn't sure about the safety since we have 2 young kids. Rollover is worse than other cars and crash data isn't great. Any help on facts and convincing her it is safe would be appreciated. Seems like the additional front seat airbags would be safer but still none in the rear. I also think I need to custom order to configure the way I want it and to get hydro blue. Again, any help on custom ordering is appreciated. I'll search the forums for answers but I wanted to say hi and explain my general situation.

Welcome to the Forum! I commute an hour to work and an hour home every day on I-93 in New Hampshire. It's very hilly and has a lot of curves with weather and driving conditions that includes all extremes. I have witnessed several accidents, stopped to help people out while waiting for police and/or rescue, seen the aftermath/cleanup under way of many many many crashes. I don't ever recall a Wrangler being one of them. Just like any vehicle, drive it according to the conditions. Park a minivan and a Wrangler in the driveway and ask the kids which one they want to ride in - It'll be the Wrangler every time!

I have tree kids 10 -15yrs old and they would rather ride in one of the Jeeps to the loaded traverse. So we got rid of the 09 Traverse no we are a Jeep only family.
