What vehicle is the JL replacing for you? Post pictures if you have them(Especially if they were a Jeep :like:)

I'll Start. I sold my 4th JK about 6 months ago in anticipation of the JL, and purchased a used motorcycle to hold me over. Just so happened it's the coldest winter I've ever experienced in Houston and my loving wife is taking me to work on days where it's below 40. Motorcycle will be sold once I get my JL(Probably to pay for JL Mods)

2014 Ford Mustang. I'll be trading it in but she's done me well. Needed more cargo space but wanted a vehicle with 4wd, more clearance, good looks, etc. and there's nothing that does it better than a Wrangler for me! I can't wait to take the top and doors off.

I really like the newer mustangs, I almost purchased a 2015 GT Premium but I'm glad I didn't. It was a great car to drive, but coming from Jeeps I knew it wouldn't be something I keep for a long time. I ended up back in another Wrangler and never questioned my decision to do so.

LOVE IT, but with a 2nd baby on the way I had to take one for the team and get something more practical and that I’d drive 12 months a year (always stored it in my garage for winter, didn’t want the salt to ruin it). But if I was « taking one for the team » it had to be for something fun, cool, and special. And what’s more special than a 4x4, convertible ? And as a French army veteran, its war based DNA meant something too :)

Held its value so well I practically drove it for free for 3yrs and 46,000 miles. Loved that thing.

I actually traded it for a more practical people mover (2016 Yukon XL), but that’s going to the wife when my JL comes in and her 15yr old minivan is going away.

That black with red interior is gorgeous. I almost went white with red....

My wife (And I) really want a Ford Raptor.... But with a 6 person family we need to have something that will seat 6. I actually added a 3rd row to my last JK, but we still spent more time in her Explorer as a family.

Hey, I remember you from Mustang6g dot com ! Lol
Remember your pics too, JL will be more practical to load your nephews bikes (if I do remember right lol)
And I do wish I could afford 2 cars as well :)
It's the damn snow and hurricanes man.
I wish there was a way for the Wrangler to have frameless door windows so it looks like a proper convertible with the top and windows down.

That black with red interior is gorgeous. I almost went white with red....
I REALLY want to do the same with the Wrangler, but the whole cloth/leather/armrest/cupholders interior difference is a big conflict for me.

Maybe I'll have an upholstery shop dye the leather to red for me. I'm always getting compliments during the summer on my interior

Love your SpeedTriple, these rims look sharp ! Owned 2 Street Triple back in France, those engines are the best, funny how much so many people are missing on their 2 or 4 cyls :)

Man, I really love those Speed Triple's! Gorgeous bike! The Subi will do too, I had one a LONG time ago... Was fun at the track embarrassing Supercars.
