who has sold and regretted it?

I frequent quite a few boards and im seeing more and more people ditch the WK, perfectly modded WKs and bought trucks or downgraded to something not 4wd. finally have mine paid off and started buying parts for my next round of mods- but now im considering letting her go.

anyone sold and regretted it? I sold a TJ of mine and regretted it for years till I finally hit the 5 yr mark with the WK. maybe im itching for a new platform, or a stock vehicle I know I wont want to mod.

Re: who has sold and regretted it?

I'm not a serious off-roader or anything like that, but when I bought my '14 WK2 what I was offered in trade for my '07 WK was a pittance.. so I kept it.

Nice reliable vehicle, hauls the trailer around, does weekend duty to keep miles off the '14.. never lets me down..

Re: who has sold and regretted it?

So this is a VERY difficult question for me. When I joined in 2009, I said that if they ever make a white SRT, I would buy one. Then when the news came out on the 8.4" Nav and 8-speed tranny in the 14', it was all over. So I bought a 4k "used" white SRT. I had an awesome (to me) 2008 WK 2wd w/ a 5.7L and a lot of goodies (4" BWoody w/ 9" Filter, SRT strut brack, BWoody end-links, SRT sways, HD Bilsteins, Low/Fog HID, ALL interior/exterior lights changed to LED's, custom stereo and MANY more mods)...bought it new and it had 72k miles when I sold it. Barely broken in

Here is the problem; my bank account would be much fatter if I had kept the 08'...but after having the 14' SRT for almost 1 year to the day, there is NO comparison other than it being a Jeep, white and 4 doors.

The info-tainment system in the 14' and transmission is amazing; paired with 470 AWD horsepower and better gas mileage than the 08' (Freeway = 21+ mpg's in my SRT vs. 19-20 @ 5-10 mph less in the 08')...I am very happy with my decision but do miss my first love HAHA

You only live once and never know when it will all come to an end. The only time I miss my 08' is when I see pics or think about her ("Jill")...but if "Jack" is in sight or I am in the driver's seat, he is the only thought on my mind.

I will be interested to hear what others say...

Re: who has sold and regretted it?

With my 98 being the exception, I've always regretted getting rid of the other 4 I've had. They kind of become like a family member to some extent.

The regret is tempered by knowing that someone is getting a damn well cared for Jeep and that I'm replacing it with a new one.

Re: who has sold and regretted it?

I can't say regretted but i do miss my 13 overland, a perfect four season car with only 7500 miles.

I traded it for a three season 2wd carWell the chance to buy a Hellcat fell in my lap and before i new it the papers were signed

So the 04 limited will be my winter driver.

Hear hear.

Even with a '14 v8/Overland, very frequently I miss the 95 ZJ 4.0, which I have this nasty feeling will still be running long after the new '14 explodes.

Re: who has sold and regretted it?

Do you guys wish you stuck it out with old girlfriends too?
I don't regret the past. You get rid of things for a reason.

Stuck it out, no...but would not mind taking a couple for a spin again

Nor do I...hence my ability to now drive a 5k vehicle faster than before!!
