Midlife Crisis?

Hello!

I just got my first Jeep! My friends are telling me that I'm in the midst of a midlife crisis since I went for a two-door Sahara.

Whatever the case, I LOVE my new baby. Looking for a name...Suggestions anyone? I'll upload a pic if I can figure out how!

Welcome. I bought a 2015 JKU Sport in January--I refer to that purchase as my own midlife crisis, so you aren't alone. Or I'm not

That's a nice 75th anniversary you've got there. Well done.

Nice Jeep! Enjoy!

Midlife crisis? Ha! Yeah, fun and coolness were definitely factors in the decision making process of my recent purchase, so I think so. But, I went with an Unlimited, so I'm taking the wife and kids along for the ride. :-D

Have fun in your Sahara!!!

Welcome to the forum!
I hear ya, broke up with the younger GF a few years ago, bought a couple of motorcycles and now moving onto the Jeep. Mid-life crisis? nahhh. Just another day. Though the bike is likely going, will help support the mods.

In my case I was 39 and my older girls had graduated from high school. One signed up for the Army, another off to college and the third in Florida with a husband and kids of her own. So I purchased a Triumph.. then I let my other talk me into trying for a boy. Nope... another beautiful little girl. So the bike went and the Jeep came. Just a little too risky a bike is up here in Mass with some renewed responsibility fot the next 18 years...

To be honest I like the Jeep more anyway.

Yea I staking you.
Saw a comment about the sticker in the windshield.... and had to check this out. Very nice Rubicon HR there Lady. Everyday I feel I need to find a reason to drive mine too so I might be suffering the same symptoms.

Summertime is coming and your ride will change how you live!

I can totally see that! Even now I'm looking for reasons to drive it...Yesterday the reason was, well, no reason. Just drove!

It will get worse when it is warm enough to loose the top and the doors.....
