Re: Need Ideas - Surprise Wife w/ GC

I put the smallest bow I could find on my new wife's sunroof when I surprised her and dropped it off at her office. Told her they were out of the big bows. She laughed. Her coworkers at the firm were jealous.

Re: Need Ideas - Surprise Wife w/ GC

I would take her to the dealership when the Jeep comes in, tell her you are reconsidering the Jeep and you want to test drive it again. Place a note in the Jeep a head of time, the note should read This Jeep was Personally made for and write your wifes name on the note.

Re: Need Ideas - Surprise Wife w/ GC

I dont know what was up with the "anything but a Chrysler product" comment, but I think people will be getting out of that mentality pretty quickly though with how nice newer Chrysler products are. My friend at work just spent $60,000 on a new X5 a couple months ago. He has been driving the dealerships loaner for an entire month now as the one he bought new was absolutely plagued with electrical issues.

Anyway, back on subject..maybe another way to do it to keep it a little more simple is to swap out her current car with the new one without her knowing. Maybe make plans to go out for a nice dinner then when you guys walk into the garage she sees the new Jeep. Then the rest of the night is for you guys to enjoy and im sure she will have permagrin the rest of the evening :-)

Re: Need Ideas - Surprise Wife w/ GC

I know when I ordered my Dodge Ram, it came with a factory sticker stating it was built for Mr. Bry@n _________...So if you ordered it in her name, it will come that way.

Personally, I would have the dealer deliver the Jeep to your house early in the am and just let her walk out to it. I like surpirses but my wife would catch on quick with the fancy dinner etc... I think it's more of a shock if they are going about their normal day and it hits em...

Both the work and dinner idea's are great though.

Re: Need Ideas - Surprise Wife w/ GC

Sit in the passenger seat naked with the keys, call her via cell and let her know you want her to come take you for a ride.

So I borke down and ordered her one about 5 weeks ago.

I'm looking for creative ways to present the GC to her as a surprise.

Whach ya'll got for ideas?

Thanks.
How about this

Drive your own vehicle to dinner, but have the new Jeep completely waxed and detailed awaiting your arrival. Make sure the place you eat at has valet parking.

At the end of the meal, pretend you are having your own car brought around, but instead, make sure the valet brings her new Grand Cherokee.

Enjoy!
I love this idea!

and for getting your wife a Wk2 for you anniversary! Good job!
