Hmmm....2015 JKU in Anvil here, but we snagged the Lifetime Factory Warranty which is no longer available, so it forces me to keep it reasonably stock.

Then a few days ago my LGS was selling Ruger LC9S's out the door for his cost.....$205. Did I need it? Hell no, but now I just ordered 1 thousand rounds of practice 9MM for it, and a rubber grip, and 2 extra mags and a N82 IWB holster and and.................

So I have no idea of what you are talking about.........

Isn't it also customary to put a 6 foot log jack across the hood to match the snorkel and carry a couple 5 gallon jerry cans because fuel stops in suburbia are sometimes a mile apart.

Around here lots of jeeper people with 40" mud tires, 8" lift, snorkel, 6 foot jack straped across the hood, roof rack, jerry cans, tube bumpers with winches and more shackles hanging off them than a 500T crane has on board. As you walk buy them you can see the frame is clean and obviously the vehicle has never even seen a gravel road.

My BIL is one of these douchers but in all fairness even w/o the jeep he's a monumental douche but thats a different story.

The CJ6 I owned had been modified a bit by the original owner. Full floating rear axle, bigger brakes, overdrive, Foldout windshield, extra 17 gallon gas tank under the body, roll bar and a metal roof.
I added the military 17 gallon gas tank under the driver seat and a roof mounted spare tire carrier.
Those new 4 door models look great. The classic style with plenty of room.
I see that there are various available tent tops for them too. But with little opportunity for camping anymore I don't lust for a new vehicle.
My aging 4 Runner will have to do.

Same here decked out Rubicons lifted big tires suspension upgraded, etc. Not a ding on them.

They all have winches on the front that have never been used.

And then there's the big shiny trucks...

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Cor 13:13

There is just something about a Jeep. Certainly hard to justify them compared to other vehicles based on acceleration, braking, ride, interior noise, ease of entry, interior room, interior leaks, low visibility, fuel mileage, reliability ( mine has been A+ so far...).

But there is NOTHING that has the resale value of Jeep Wranglers!

I've had 4 Jeeps. They were fun and always got me home.



The DL is also working well.

Priced a Toyota FJ?
They go for more used than they did new.

Owning a Cherokee for a few years was enough of the Jeep experience for me. Spent a lot of quality time working on it.
