And so it ends

Well...looks like the family life beat out the jeep life...for now. While i wa out of th country the jeep was traded in for a mini-van. 3 Kids will do that to ya. But I'm sure I'll get another one once they get older.

Minivans are dirt cheap. Go get your rig back. You'll find out quick you need 2 vehicles anyway. I have 4 kids and there's no way we could survive with one vehicle. What do you do when it's in the shop, wether it's your shop or someone elses, you need a vehicle with kids.

I bought "MY JEEP" for my wife
I bought "MY OTHER JEEP" for my daughter [she sold it]
I finally bought one for me

I have my ZJ, the wife has a civic. When we need a mini-van, we borrow my dad's or the wifes mothers.

if we reach the point when we need something larger.. I'll trade in the ZJ.. for a 4dr TJ!! or a compass or something.. but certainly not a mini-van..

or.. we'll trade the civic in on a ridgeline or a CR-V

I feel your loss.

You can get almost as many kids in zj as a mini van, it just depends on how you stack them.
