Jim and I have always appreciated the Jeep brand for its durability and reliability.
Following are photos from the day I said goodbye to my personal vehicle that I got before I married Jim — an Isuzu Rodeo — and I said hello to my new Jeep Grand Cherokee.
My Old Isuzu Rodeo SUV
Kissing my old 1999 Isuzu Rodeo goodbye in the parking lot of the Isuzu dealer in Nashville. Though we liked the Rodeo a lot, we didn’t like the lease payments, so we were thrilled to move on and find another ride.
My New Jeep Grand Cherokee
When the lease on the 1999 Isuzu Rodeo expired, we gave it back and paid cash for this 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. It had a lot of miles, but was a one-owner vehicle (a woman who drove it to work and back). She also kept every service record, every oil change, tire rotation, etc. This Jeep was in really good condition when we bought it through AutoTrader.com.
Jim… Always At Home In A Jeep
The new Jeep was like a new toy for Jim. He was eager to polish up the inside.
Shining Up The Engine
Jim even took it so far as to polish the engine!
All In The Family
That makes 3 Jeeps in our 2-adult household (and no kids). Yes, we love Jeeps!
Please join me in welcoming a new Jeep to the family.
We just purchased our 4th Jeep!
It’s a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland. Here’s our review.
Yep, we still have the 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited – couldn’t be happier.
I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
