I leased with 15k a year. Sitting at 6k after 2 months. I wont do this again. haha
I went out and bought a little getting around car a few weeks ago for work and whatnot to keep the miles off of the JL until winter.

Not even 1.5 months and I have 4500 on the odometer. I drive it to the store, to Starbucks, to get my daughter from school, or just a head clearing ride after work (I work from home and just have to get out of the house after work). Pretty much any excuse to drive it. I have taken weekend trips to everywhere within a 5hr radius, pretty much every weekend. I bought it in August, so my strategy has been to make the most of the remaining warm/sunny days here in NY, since I missed having a jeep through June and July. This wouldn't be to bad but, it's a lease (don't do a lease you will regret the sh&% out of that). I figure during the cold days the mileage spike will even out since I don't see myself having a legitimate excuse/reason to drive it. However, for now if the sun is out and its not cold or raining, the top comes down and I'm headed someplace. BTW supposed to be 85 degrees today here in NY... Guess whose knocking off work early..!
I got 5500 ish miles on it since October. That doesn’t sound like much, but when you take in consideration that 4000 of those miles are wheeling/off-road then does that count as a lot?
I’m in wheeling anonymous......:facepalm:

I traded in my 2019 JLUR after 8 months with 1,800 miles on it. I've had my 2020 a month now and I'm at 160 miles.

Everything is local to me...
Why did you trade the 2019 JLUR ?

Funny my girlfriend doesn't get that at all & I work from home. We fight about it every single week. After work I just have to get the hell out of the house.
Look man, I ain't telling you how to live your life but all I gotta say is if she's a Jeeper she's a keeper ;)

I buy a new jeep every year. Build it up up and trade it in at the end of the year to start over. It is a hobby of mine.

Probably be the last one though. Illinois is wiping out the trade in tax exemption January 1st so it won't be financially reasonable anymore.

Fishing , I hope.
Actually just got back into it. I had surgery on my left hand (I'm also left handed) that took me further out of commission until the end of August. The issue had ruined my spring and summer fishing.

Here is my first trip back on the Upper Potomac and the first fish: I was a little jazzed.

How does that song go ? You can sit by the pool but you cant have a swim, you can feel the cushions but you cant have a seat ......and so on. Leasing is too confining .

I have a 2016 Grand Chrrokee for the daily driver with a little over 100,000 miles on it. The Rubicon I purchased 12/18 and I have ~5000 miles on it. You've got to have a backup! :like:
