Need Advice from the Family Men of the board
Ok Guys, I need a little advice. I'm looking about 6 months down the road to my next vehicle purchase. I am going to need to get rid of my '97 ZJ, it has seen much better days.
I'm not a family man, yet. I just got married last June so it will be a little while until we have kids but I am kind of planning ahead. I have two vehicles in mind. Either another Grand Cherokee or a Wrangler. I've decided that if I am going to get either one it's going to be either the Overland (GC) or the Rubicon models. I get a monthly car allowance from work so I can afford to get nicer models. I like the GC because of the space and comfort, but I also want to get into a SWB vehicle eventually so I can join an off-road club/extra curriculars and get some off-the-pavement time in.
Anyway, I grew up with Jeep, CJ's and Wranglers in particular so I know it is possible to have kids and have SWB vehicles. But what I don't remember is if it was a pain in the butt. What do you guys suggest I do, stick with another Grand Cherokee or go with the Wrangler.
From your experience, what do you suggest I go with? I guess a third option is to go with the Grand Cherokee and just get a cheap CJ to puts with.
