It was time for me to say.....

Goodbye. After owning my car for the past four years I decided that it was time to move on. I went back and forth with myself for over two months and felt I could move on with little or no regrets. A new job and a farther commute helped with my decision. I was getting 21 mpg so deciding on the jeep which I should average around 25 helps somewhat but really had no impact. I want to thank everyone here who over the years have given me great advice and feedback. I looked for a jeep forum to join but so far I have not found one even close to this one. On a side note, I do have a set of BLIZZAK snow tires which are on 20" stock Camaro rims I will be selling. If anyone is interested please PM me. They have around 1000 miles of usage on them and they are in excellent shape. Thanks. By the way, I put up a few pics to share. Next week I am getting the hood decal which they owe me. My first mod will be to put a red pinstripe around it. Here I go again. LOL

Good luck with it.

Oh god, no offense to you but I HATE the new model Cherokees. I have no idea what they were thinking when they did that with the front end. Jeep has always been so iconic with the same basic look and I like that and when you see a jeep, you KNOW it's a Jeep. This is one of the ugliest cars I've ever seen now.

lol sorry to be so brutal. But at least it's a bad ass car because it's a Jeep! It'll hold it's value and last a long time.

I was very upset to see the simple design of Jeep turn into a Nissan Juke-inspired piece of garbage.

Totally agree. If they destroy the Wrangler I'll be crushed. Some of my favorite car's as a child were wrangler's and cherokee's, i have no idea why lol. But I wanted a Wrangler when I realized I could afford a Camaro. Wrangler will be my next car once I'm done with my apprenticeship. Need a truck, a camaro and a Wrangler. haha

I, too, think the Wrangler is a really unique, special vehicle among automotive enthusiasts. I don't feel the same about most of the Jeep line, so I guess this isn't the worst thing in the world. The Wrangler's stripped nature needs to be maintained for Jeep to still have that mystique. Otherwise, they'll just be a crappy SUV brand. I would love to see GM try to get into the Wrangler game with a trimmed mini-Hummer-style vehicle.

I'm sorry but what the hell are you talking about. There is nothing similiar between a Japanese vehicle and the Jeep lineup. The Jeep trailhawk is a fantastic ride and the interior puts the interior of say a RAV4 to shame. Companies like say Toyota build boring uninspiring cars. Jeep builds good looking vehicles that are fun to drive that you look forward to every day. Dumb comment imho.
