You're alright. Life happens and sometimes there is no choice but to go with the Minivan Jeep.
As long as your heart is still in a 2-door. ;)

However I do blame you Minivan Jeepers for all that ducking going around.

I was proudly duck free until a tween-age girl scampered out of the back seat of a JLU and cornered me at a "last chance" pitstop before heading out into the middle of nowhere.
Saw no other choice but to suck it up and gracefully accept my ducking. ...dammit.

Still laughing—thanks guys.

So the story is:
No kids, but I had a WBSP Challenger I picked up last summer—and the two door.

I just couldn’t continue to drive the Challenger down the dirt road, and roll it to the back of the garage during the 8 months of winter here in Alaska.
This came up locally (original order couldn’t secure financing), and it just made sense to combine the two.

It’s a blast—but I will miss rowing my own gears—and of course the Gecko ?.

Hope you guys can let it slide—I’ll still creep on the off-road pictures thread—my favorite. I wish Jeep would listen—I’d trade my wife for a two door, manual, 304 like my ‘86.

Again—thanks for the laughs!

How is the tranny gearing on the 392? Does it drive like a racecar? Or more like the regular 8s automatic option?
With OR+ on it increases shift points and throttle response. Similar to my GC SRT in “Sport” mode , but doesn’t similarly downshift with just a throttle tap, HOLD the gear well, and allow repeat at will— or disable MDS….. Also press and hold traction control button ~5 seconds after OR+ to disable TC and stability control so they don’t decide to cut power when you don’t want….. to Keep Us Safe …... It’s an improvement but nowhere near the “Track” mode fast hard shifts plus mentioned items.

Alex,

If there was a Jeep that I would give up my 2 door manual for, it would be the 392!

Couldn't blame ya a bit. ?

Actually this is a bit more of a betrayal.......I did go 2 door....but with one small caveat.

The good news is once Jeep puts out a manual transmission I enjoy driving, I know I can make the switch now......proof of concept.

Guys—I couldn’t help myself. I still maintain 2 doors is the way, but I can’t have both-and keep the wife!

If she loves you, she'll understand. The secret is you don't say no to her to anything she wants, and then when you do stuff to your Wrangler, you don't ask permission, you ask forgiveness.

At this point, my wife prefers that I do my crazy things to my Wrangler, as long as I leave her car and the house out of it.

I built this awkward looking wood shed to protect the firewood in the backyard from the rain and ice storm that we had earlier this year in Texas, and she thought it was hideous and her words exactly were "why don't you just stick to messing with the Jeep and not building weird things around the house!"

Broncos do make great mall crawlers.

Shopping for a new wife is always fun!
I have a buddy that will disagree with you. Not too fun in this day. I hear horror stories all the time. It’s a different world. Lol.

So make a pros and cons list.
Feel free to add to to the list:

Two Jeeps: ——————vs ——- —- Wife:

✅ ride anytime
✅ looks great topless
✅ purrs when asked
✅ likes to get dirty
✅ ready day or night
Well, seeing this in writing makes me rethink things.

Does anyone know the current trade in value of a 2022 Ram TRX and a 1970 wife? Both are in good condition. ;)

It’s like a murderer killing all but one of his kids.

You kinda wanna say, “At least he let one live” while knowing he quartered the others and put their body parts in a barrel full of cement. In other words, it could be worse.

I mean it’s not like you can’t get a new wife who appreciates the beauty and respect of a two door (totally unbiased) .

Amiright fellas (and marriage worthy gals), amiright?
