Not a hater, but $24,000 plus the yearly insurance and maintenance of a second car buys an awful LOT of gas. Some of us don't have the luxury of space to have two vehicles just to have an extra one for fuel economy when we need to be able to haul people and cargo, tow several times per year, and be able to travel in adverse conditions. Hence, the Jeep.
