In motocross we call that an "endo" and they really hurt!

your history with Jeep

I am on my 3rd Jeep:

98 Cherokee Sport 4.0L I6

2004 Liberty Columbia Ed. Laredo 3.7L V6

2014 Grand Cherokee Altitude 3.6L V6

Between the Liberty and now JGC, I was driving around in a 2010 Honda CRV. Boy am I happy to be back!

Re: your history with Jeep

Well, the Summit I'm currently driving is actually the first Jeep I would call my own - although it's not the first one in our household.

We already had an Overland back in 2006 but only for a short period of time (lemon) and it was considered my mother's vehicle. My brother owned a used Cherokee as his first ride in the US after we moved to the States. I don't know what MY that one was - I guess it could have been a 1997 or so.

Re: your history with Jeep

2014 JGC Overland is my first Jeep ever. Had a couple Dodge Caravans, a Toyota Sienna (all AWD,) a Subaru Forester XT, Subaru Impreza wagon,Toyota Prius, Eagle Talon Tsi, Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX (still own it) and a few others. Lots of vehicles, mostly Japanese brands. Of them all, the Eclipse is still my favorite, but my Jeep has moved to second. I REALLY love this thing.

Re: your history with Jeep

Had a laundry list of import & domestic sports cars/SUVs before my last two Jeeps. My 2011 Overland and now 2014 Overland have started my Jeep tradition. Love the GC and will have another one at some point in the future!

Re: your history with Jeep

We've had a handful of CJs, Cherokees and Grand Cherokees in the family. Currently have an 84 Scrambler and the 15 Ecodiesel Grand Cherokee.
