How often do you think about selling your Jeep?

So I guess the question is, how often do you think about selling your Jeep. Personally, I am thinking about selling mine right now... probably for another Jeep. It seriously seems to happen to me about once or twice a month (especially when I break stuff) At the moment I am thinking about buying a CJ8, locking in, putting a 350 in it, and then buying a daily driver (2wd ricer truck) Decisions Decisions.. how about you?

Never. My daughter will own it when I'm dead. I guess I bought the right jeep the first time. I only think about selling other things so I'll have the cash to do what I want to it, like: Paint, 350, 700R4 tranny, better springs, new rear bumper, winch.................... List is long.

Yup, I thought of selling mine alot when I had less money invested in it. For the first 5 years I owned it I could have made money over what I had in it, then the decision to put more stuff on it surpassed the $$ i had in it, and now I'll just keep her forever.

Yea, you guys are CJ guys... when I had my CJ, I didn't want to sell it either. It was paid off, it was set up the way I wanted it set up... only down fall is it had a 360 and was my daily driver. My Rubicon is the furthest thing from paid off... let's just say that.

Never have. When it looked like the Gladiator was going to be produced I planned on trading it in.
