Wow, we had a great time this evening wranglering around

Wife and I took turns playing and driving, put 150 miles on it just toying this afternoon.....now to figure our the baseplate I'll install.


This rv thing is fun, even when not out on the road.

Nope, rag top, manual tranny, two door Sahara, 3.73 gear, connectivity package, slush mats, that's about it.

Here are a couple photos, funny thing is the Cherokee just under the mirror ( in the garage) we just purchased to tow, DW loves it so much it's now her everyday suv and it isn't getting any tow equipment

That's the same color the dw wants. We are in the looking and saving stage right now. Was considering the Sport S but the Sahara is tempting also. Haven't seen them at any of the dealers around here. No Saharas within 100 miles.

Didn't mean to offend anyone with my "city Jeep" comment. My point was that for me, with only a couple years of "jeeping" under my belt--the 06 Wrangler, with its good ground clearance and high angle of attack/departure, was a good choice for me. First off, I don't mind getting a few scratches on a 10-year old Jeep. Second, I was concerned about the dependability of the 3.8 v-6, given its track record in other Jeep products. I did give in to temptation and got a bit bigger tire--"32s," and recently went with 2" lifted springs and new shocks--both OEM shocks and springs seemed a bit "tired" to me. Realize an experienced jeeper could probably take any jeep product over about any trail--but for a newbie like me, I have found the 06 Wrangler, two-door to be very capable, and extremely forgiving in the back country [places like Durango/Silverton], again for this newbie.

We traveled to several cities about a 100 miles away over the past month, bought from a deal 70 miles away. Just the way it worked out.


Good luck!

Ah very nice! Love that color. We were looking at that color in the 75th Anniversary trim, but I think I like it better in the standard trim after seeing yours.

Yup they are pricey

Well we have a brand new Dodge Jeep dealership in town [Strathmore,Alberta]. There first day of business was yesterday Aug. 20th , balloons tied on all the vehicles blah blah. They have a nice selection of Jeeps. One that caught my eye was [ to me ] a super nice 2016 Black 4 door Rubicon. Leather and all the goodies. Window sticker $54,000........Cdn. < Ouch !
Not sure what that type of vehicle would go for in the US ??
With the exchange , US $ > Cdn $ it might be worth the trip if you plan on buying new. Today , Sunday the 21rst , 1 US dollar = $1.29 Cdn
So.......$54,000 Cdn = $41,959 US. That is for a high end Jeep , and sticker price that a guy could widdle down quite a bit. A Sport or Sahara would be a much lower price and with US dollar power a person may get a pretty good deal. You would have to pay 5% GST. I hear import is not that painful.
I'm not a salesman ! Just throwing it around.

Cheers and Happy trails

Well Gang,
We did it, we bit the bullet and purchased a 2015 JKU Rubicon. It's got 27K on the clock and absolutely FLAWLESS. We actually could not have done better with a brand new one. In short, after all the research and looking from basically coast to coast for a nice used one and, delving into the thoughts of a brand new one, we ended up with a deal about 3.5 hours from our home. This thing still smells brand new. I applaud the previous owner for not SMOKING in it and or mistreating it in any way. We're totally happy with it. And Man, do we love this "Hydro Blue Pearl Coat".

Now, to set it all up for towing and, a bit of off roading.
Scott

With all the pictures of Jeeps being posted we couldn't put the decision off any longer! We came home with a 2016 Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. Very different than our Suburban, but fun to drive.
