LOL She should take a ride in my hypergreen JK! Its a toy for me so I love it.My wife things that the color is too bright and 'in your face'. Last night she said that she was embarrassed to be seen in it
By the sounds of it, her first “mod” would be to have the entire Jeep wrapped in greige vinyl...I don’t know your plans to mod yours but I would highly recommend that you work together on making decisions. What would she like? What are her interests? Was she “all in” on getting your Jeep? She possibly feels left out.
...Give her time, get her input, work on it together, and enjoy it together. Who knows she may come to enjoy it so much that you will be looking for another Wrangler.
Best of luck!!!!
Enjoy the ride!!!!
That what I did as my wife was not sold on Mojito Green and said it is my Jeep, go for it. But she does like riding and driving it.You sir are a genius! I wish I had thought of that, get something fun but in a color the wife hates so she won’t be “borrowing “ it all the time!
Hi everyone I picked up my new JL this week and want to share my impressions comparing the two.
I couldn't agree more.
That said, my '84 CJ7 was more comfortable than my '81 CJ5, which way out shined my '47 Willy's CJ2A. Over the years, every new design was better (subjective) than the model it replaced. Looking forward to the JL replacement!
2015 JK Unlimited Sahara Altitude edition
3.6 L, 6 Speed Manual
33 inch KO2's
2019 JL Unlimited Rubicon
2.0 Turbo, 8 Speed Auto
33 inch K02's
I find the JL feels like I am driving a much lighter vehicle. The steering in particular feels very light.
The seats in JL seem to be thinner and the JK had better seat bolstering.
The 2.0 with the 8 Speed transmission feels monstrous compared to the JK.
I don't mind the Stop/Start function at all. So far it has perform flawlessly.
The infotainment center in the JK was from the 1800's in comparison to the JL.
I went from a black JK to a Bikini Pearl JL and my wife absolutely HATES the color
I immediately recognized that from “Cah Talk”!I'm a divorce lawyer with 30 years of experience. You LOVE the color and 'she was embarrassed to be seen in it'. You only have two choices here. Immediately trade the vehicle in for a loss and get a white Wrangler or file divorce papers and retain me to not only protect your Jeep but also the rest of your assets. I have offices in Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal, and Stinky Dead Fish in the Northwest Territories. Feel free to private message me with questions regarding retainers, etc or check out my website:
Brandy, I know you are trying to maintain the “wife” code. But here’s the reality. If a husband REALLY REALLY likes something, like a car or a Jeep, wives are genetically inclined to pretend that they don’t like it. Wives cannot help themselves. They WILL find something to criticize, and continue to hammer it to DEATH.Hmm, no problem, leave her at home... Seriously, I think it's a really pretty color. Wait till she sees it on a nice sunny day. You could tone it down a notch by getting some custom decals to break up all that Bikini You have an awesome Jeep. Enjoy it
