Precisely why my wife has her own vehicle. She got what she desired rendering her opinion on my Jeep mute
Sadly that logic has fallen on deaf ears with my wife. If I ride the motorcycle to work she ditches her Honda and takes the Jeep. :LOL:

Wives that don't let their husbands buy a jeep turn into single women.
Men that listen to their unreasonable wives turn into grumpy aholes.

I can make my own decisions mom....happy wife happy life my asssssssss.
I called my wife from the dealer and said I am looking at jeeps, I will be home a bit late.
She demanded I come home NOW and if I come home with a jeep I am going to be living on the street.
Well, I got a jeep, and I am not living in the street, my wife likes the jeep but would never own one.
Sometimes you just gotta say...F U,,,I do what I want.

I would NEVER say FU to my sweet wife. I have become a pretty good marital negotiator with such things, and I respect her.

Kinda the opposite for me. I had a pretty awesome built FJ with long travel on 35s ect. My wife got a 2dr Jk sport to go wheeling with me. She followed my FJ everywhere offroad in her little 2dr sport on 33s .. when I needed to use my lockers, she just crawled right up behind me haha.. i was like wtf!?
Her JK sold me on getting a Wrangler for myself and selling my FJ.

Retired from Corrections....I have stories.
When it comes to Jeeps, my wife is a co-enabler. She says things, like "whats it take to run forties?" She encourages me to spend money on the Jeep and even suprised me by having 5.13 gears installed on the Jeep for Christmas. Bought me a winch for my birthday and We have been wheeling the last four weekends in a row. When we got home from camping and wheeling for four days in the U.P. of Michigan, we cleaned the camper and Jeep up. About an hour later, she was like take the top and doors off the Jeep so we can go for an evening ride. NOTE: We had already been in the Jeep for four hours on our return trip from upper Michigan to home. As we cruised in the Jeep, Metallica came on the radio and she turned it up full blast and just smiled from ear to ear as we cruised. This morning, she said, I need more time on the trail and around a campfire. 1 year 4 months and she will be retired with me....... Can't wait.

I also have a keeper.......33years now, and she’s always been all in. Buys stuff for the Jeep all the time. Always asking what each mod is for , how does it work or, wanting to learn more and more. We’re looking for her a fixer. It won’t be cheap, her off-road company of choice is Poison Spyder and LOD .....:facepalm: She doesn’t like to get extreme off camber so the two must haves as of right now is wide axles and 40 s. God love her........:)

Ah hem! On behalf of wives... I was the one who talked the husband into getting our JLU. We needed something for heavy winters and his little Mazda wasn’t cutting it anymore. I had to drive it one day and I barely made it through a nasty storm, I immediately came into the house and yelled, “We are getting a GD Jeep!” He didn’t want to spend more than $30k on a vehicle. He wanted something unique that did not look like every other suv on the road. I came from a Honda Element, which I begrudgingly replaced with a Subaru Forester. We had some sad events happen in a relatively short period and I said, “Why not spend a little more to have a little fun? We need something to look forward to.” He agreed and off we went to the dealership. Now he thinks of ways to accessorize customize his ride and whenever we go out for errands I’m in the driver seat. :LOL:

I don't think my wife is quite sold on the idea of a jeep yet, but I know once the top comes down she'll love it. She can't drive a stick though, so that's part of the reason I'm ordering a 6 speed :like: When she falls in love with it she can't steal it!

My 3 year old on the other hand... everytime we're out: "A jeep daddy a jeep!"

Raising her right, she's very excited for it.
Very similar situation, my wife doesn’t drive manual transmissions, isn’t interested in learning and I love it that way. She has her own car and has a heavy foot. If I’m in her car I’m always asking her if it’s necessary to drive 40 mph between traffic lights.
I don’t want her driving my Jeep that I baby and spent 50k on, so it’s 6 speed MT for me. The only negative is if we’re out late and I’m tired I’ve gotta get the large coffee as opposed to a nice nap in the passenger seat.

My Wife is special that way. She’s mentioned a few times lately that she misses rowing through gears. At one point years ago, she had a ‘69 VW Bug, no AC (in FL), and absolutely loved paddling through the gears.

I forgot to mention, 37 years of marital bliss here. We see eye to eye on most things, and the things we don’t, I use my marital negotiation skills ;)

Like you my wife cannot drive stick and has no interest. I'd hate to try and have to teach her on this light clutch jeep has now. But with that said she does have a 2018 JLU which she absolutely loves. She was not too happy that my 2020 willys jl is the same color though. I was looking for stingray gray but found a Granite crystal metallic one on a lot in Conn. that looked great but even A greater price. So she kids me now that I got one like hers. She was not too happy at first I mean, hers is 4 doors and mine 2.

After years of want, I finally got my JL; also after years of hearing "I just don't know why you NEED a Jeep so badly..." Now that I have it, all I hear now is "So... we should take the Jeep, because _____" fill in the blank with endless reasons to put more miles on the Jeep translates out to. *I love driving it... just not for the sake of driving to town. She said the other day "Maybe instead of getting the Audi Q5 I like/NEED, we should get a JT..." I said "Sure! but I'm keeping MY JL, no 'post purchase swaps." I think we're back to the Audi.

My wife gave me trouble because she loved my trade-in car, 2018 Mustang GT Vert. Today I catch her taking my Jeep on an errand not her car.

While walking the dog an hour ago, she had to admit I was right. Jeeps are fun! Just in a different way from the sports cars I generally buy.
