New Member, New Jeep, First Post..

Hi All, A few months ago, I was sent on a mission to locate and purchase a replacement for the family car, our daily driver. Maybe a hybrid, something like a Prius. I happened to be at a combo Jeep dealership looking at a 4dr sensible, then I got sidetracked. There was this amazing rank of used and new Jeep Wranglers, all manner of color, lifted, and fitted, and I bought one. A black 2 dr Rubicon, manual, with a soft top. The wife agreed, the old family cruiser could last a few more years. In fact the Rubi is now her DD!!! and we're still trying to figure out how to get the top back up.

Using a JK as a Daily Driver opens a huge spectrum of situations you rarely/never deal with compared to driving the family 4dr sedan. If you DON'T "drop the top" we drive with the windows up and the AC/heat on. Biggest difference is the slowish start due to stick transmission, incredible turning radius, and ability to park in impossible spaces. Ride is stiffer in a JK. If you "Drop the top", the entire equation changes. You're now driving through a tornado with one hand on the wheel, another on the stick, trying to use your cell phone, put on makeup, sand, pollen, and dust flying everywhere. When you arrive your hair is TRASHED, you're a bit sunburned, your skin is numb, and you get out of the vehicle knowing the meaning of the phrase, "Ride it like you stole it."
