New from OC, CA
Thought I would chime in, been lurking for some time, just made my first post and figured I'd add in over here as well.
Just ordered a '14 Limited, it will be my first Jeep as I'm a long time (20 year) Explorer driver.
I am melancholy over it, silly I know. I've had my current '98 XLT 4WD since 2000. I've always loved the truck. Sure it has issues -- it's 15 years old, but it's always started save once (fuel pump). Put 200K on my first one, 130K on the second. My wife drives an '07 Fusion that has been flawless and she adores it.
But I'm sure my new Limited will woo me over rapidly.
Neither Ford nor GM have anything to compare to the JGC, not even close. Nothing with its versatility. I don't want a full size truck, I have no need for a 3rd row of seats. My third row needs to fit whiskey barrel planters and bags of fertilizer and mulch. The others lose on bang/buck.
So, here I am.
I'm not much of a modder, I leave my vehicles pretty much stock. My Jeep will be running me around to work, weekend errands, and poking around in the desert.
I'll lurk some more until it finally shows up, whenever that is. I'm sure I'll have questions as it gets closer.
