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.
Since we’ve been married, my husband and I have owned 5 Jeeps (3 Wranglers and 2 Grand Cherokees). And when we’re not driving our own Jeep, we’re usually renting one (a 4×4 Wrangler on vacation). We keep a Jeep Bucket List of places that we’d like to go next, and we're always crossing more states off our list of 'Places That We’ve Jeeped in the USA'. As our daily driver, we keep the soft top on our Jeep Wrangler year round (and the back window permanently rolled up) so the dogs can enjoy the ride. Yep… even in the winter! I've been sharing my best Jeep ideas with others by blogging full-time since 1998. When I’m not Jeeping or writing about Jeeps, you'll find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
