Sought an older Jeep for dog transport.. Instead ended up..
...enjoying the test drives so much I decided to trade in my Infiniti and get an awesome 2012 Rubicon with most the Infiniti's nicer features (GPS, leather, nice stereo, auto everything, etc.)
Took it out to the trails at Four Peaks this morning (I live in PHX) and had a blast! So far couldn't be happier. Hoping to get more involved with the Jeep community here and do some more offroading. Can't wait!
