Smile Previous Jeep Owner: Time To Return?

Good day all,

I am a previous Jeep enthusiast, owning a Cherokee 98' model until I purchased a 04' KJ Columbia Edition named BlckKJ. What a great adventure owning both Jeeps, especially the KJ which was definitely modified (Lift, Bumpers, Lights, CAI, etc...). The KJ went to Jeep Jamboree in the Blue Ridge Mountains, adventured multiple times to Silver Lake Michigan sand dunes, enjoyed the holiday spirit of giving by driving multiple years to the Great Lakes Jeep Club Chicago Toys 4 Tots, all while "BlckKJ" easily represented "my brand" of who I was.

2010 came and after replacing my radiator 2 times, 3 water pumps, 3 windshields, and a transmission rebuild, 160K miles, I decided to let her go.

That was when I moved into a Honda CR-V. Yes, Jeep to Honda. For work/life reasons this was a good fit. I was looking for the most bang for my dollar along with extremely good gas mileage. I found it with the Honda and have no regrets. However, I am saddened when looking at old images of my "BlckKJ" and the fun Jeep days!

TODAY, I AM LOOKING TO RETURN!!

So for now I am researching what I want to do. My main intent is looking at the 2014 GC Altitude 4x4. I am planning on staying under $40K but want to get the most for my money. I love sunroofs, technology, and exterior looks. V6 is what I am leaning with regardless of the model I get since I drive A LOT. No kids yet (soon?). This WILL be my go to car for many years to come and I want to make the best decision!

Now that you know a little about me, I'm ready to take this step and see what path it might lead me, hopefully with JEEP!

Ordering or buying off the lot? Let me know what's going on dude!

BTW: If you are interested in going to a Jeep show... be sure to bring your ID just in case you win 4 new Goodyear tires or something.... hehehehehehehehe.

Re: Previous Jeep Owner: Time To Return?

Looking for an Altitude, most likely off the lot if I can find one when I am ready. Hesitation kicked in though as I am debating if no parking sensors/rear view camera matters or not. LOL. Silly, but to be honest with all the other tech in it why not give those as well?

Re: Previous Jeep Owner: Time To Return?

Me, personally, I can go without the parking sensors, but that backup camera... uh, I don't think I'll buy another vehicle without one, with how high beltlines are these days!
