Here's the deal: I'm taking Jeepchick on a vacation out West in June. Arches, Bryce, Zion, Grand Canyon, Vegas, Death Valley, Yosemite, etc., etc. Flying into Salt Lake City, flying home out of Fresno, CA.
I really want to get a soft top Jeep to rent, to see all of that beautiful scenery from. Unfortunately, I can't seem to get a Jeep, or even a convertible car, for that matter, from any of the major rental places - Avis, Hertz, etc.
I did find one place out of SLC that would rent me one, and charge me a 'retreival fee' from Fresno to SLC, but they are out of soft-top models for that timeframe.
I tried the Jeep rental places in Moab, but for various complications, that doesn't work.
We're not really looking to wheel, just to drive an open Jeep on our trip.
I know it's the one-way rental that's hurting my availability, but changing our itinerary isn't an option - it's SLC to Fresno.
.......Can anyone give me any ideas? Anyone wanna rent me their TJ?
I actually looked into shipping my YJ out and back, which is actually cheaper than I was quoted to rent one
but my YJ wouldn't be up to the trip, and Jeepchick's Grand Cherokee isn't an open-top Jeep.
Thanks for any thoughts. Leve - you live out there, any advice?
