Lmao 😆 well I guess I’m just a material girl living in a material world 🤷🏼‍♀️ BUT c‘mon the all colored everything just makes it look a bit more luxurious than rugged. As I’m typing that, I’m realizing I’m about to buy a more “luxurious” model just to make it look mean AF 🤔 Ok, rethinking those black fenders and bumpers 🤦🏻‍♀️
Jeep Girls are the best!

A Jeep and a sports car make the perfect garage. But if you can only have one, the Jeep wins in my book.

When you start looking at what $54k buys you, it's amazing Jeep can get that much money for these things. I'd rather have a used $27k sports car and a used $27k modified JKU.

get a Jeep Sport S and an older 5.0 Mustang for your go fast itch. mustangs are far more driveable than camaros on the street.

if you can only have one, id recommend test driving the turbo jeep. people seem to really like the get up and go on those.

$45k for a High Altitude seems like a good price. those are fully loaded with everything you want (sounds like it). just spend the extra $5k (from $40k) and get what you want.

2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon
Went from a 2015 Audi S5 to a 2021 Wrangler Rubicon.

You can't compare these two .. It's like comparing apples to potatoes.

I loved my Audi, like really loved it .. Custom ordered it from Germany with the red/black/carbon fibre interior ... It was an amazing car, and I only put 50,000 km on it in 5 years.

My life started to changing:
- My girlfriend and I are getting more serious, so if we get married and have kids, it would be hard to carry stuff and the kids in a coupe
- Since COVID we have been travelling a lot more in our area, which is Calgary Canada. We have access to some of the most beautiful hikes in the Rookies
- It's way easier haul a dog carrier with 4 doors and a bigger vehicle
- I can haul my instruments to practice and gigs without having to ask my band members
- I don't have to ask anyone to borrow their vehicle to pick up something large, like furniture
- I don't have to pre check the road conditions to a hike, I just go
- I don't get curb rash because I have a big side wall

At the end of the day, the wrangler is just so much more convenient. I love being high up and looking at the peasants below. The Audi was nice but speed only leads to speeding tickets.

If I was offered both vehicles, I would still pick the Wrangler ... Hope that helps!

If visibility is one of your concerns, the visibility alone in a jeep compared to a Camaro is night and day. Jeeps sits up very high and have all open windows, so your visibility is probably one of the best out there. You will never look back once you own a Jeep Wrangler JL.

Took my Chrysler 300 SRT in for an oil change and ended up trading for a new Altitude. I hated the lack of visibility in the Chrysler. Kept that Wrangler for 6 years then traded for my present Rubicon. Never looked back. Oh, and added a Willys for the wife to drive.

@Rhonda13 I think you’ll like it: you’ll sit higher off the ground while still having the top down freedom you seem to enjoy.

On a side note, the woman in the photo below only appears in an advert only on this thread. The picture is too nice not to share. Right @Headbarcode?

I switched from a Cadillac CTS (0 rear visability, super low to the ground so similar to your situation). No regrets at all. Visibility is amazing. Also, as you have to follow traffic laws on the street you will end up using the Jeep's capabilities far more often than you did the Camaro's.

Lol def not a dude but it’s cool! Definitely feeling the vibes that it’s not going to be a bad switch or decision so thank you! Def a hard decision and there’s just something driving a sports car on a free highway 🌞
I had an M3 convertible, only time I miss it is when there is a loooong stretch of open road in front of me. Other than that I hardly miss it including its 450 dollar oil changes!!

Ok guys, I’ve been researching and looking for Sahara Unlimited’s for over a year. When the color matched bumpers came out, I was sold! I’ve never owned a Jeep though, lol! Total newbie here but I’m on the fence. I grew up and learned how to drive with a Jeep Cherokee so I have a little bit of cred.

Besides that, I’ve only owned 2 door sports cars since I was 17. I currently own a 2017 Camaro that I absolutely adore but the blind spots should be illegal. I’m used to no back seats and horrible vision but this car tops the cake. I can barely see when it’s raining hard and I hydroplane nearly every damn time being that I’m driving a damn tank! I just need visibility in my life, lol! So what I’m asking is...am I going to hate life after switching from a sports car to a Jeep Wrangler? Yes, I’ve driven them many times before because I’ve rented them every summer for the beach. But I’d love to hear from someone who’s done the switch and was it worth it?! Thanks!!
I sold my 14 SS Camaro shortly after I bought the JLUR.

I don't miss the Camaro much.

I switch from a Wrangler to a Fiat Spider whenever the sun comes out.

Don't think so. I smile more getting into my TJ than my Charger RT (that's up for sale). Just like anything, the grass is always greener so you're bound to have a few down days of punching it to hear the exhaust roar to life But the wrangler's v6 and turbo are punchy enough that it should be negligible difference.

Never settle.

Just don't go into financial ruin to impress someone at stop light. Get what suits you for the season you're in.

Guess if you love to attack maybe you will be a bit dissapointed but the wrangler offers so many many other side

My wife insisted on us selling our 97 TJ with no A/C for our 21 JLR. She loves it. We had a 2012 Mini Cooper Clubman which she liked but this is way better.
