Unbelievable Jeep Gift (Gotta see this!)

So I am on my way home and the wife says that there is a surprise in the garage for me. Its my daughters 4th Birthday in about 3 days and she said she got her a gift at Toys R Us today. I walk into the garage and low and behold, look what I see...

It has a 24 volt battery and can get up to speeds of 7 MPH. It has shocks, racing seatbelts, padded seats, working radio, etc. They never had toys like this when I was her age. I was deathly afraid to find out how much she paid for it so I did not ask. Now my daughter says she has a Jeep like her dad

I agree but you gotta admit it's just extremely cool.
Makes me wish I had a kid so I could see the facial expression when I gave Him/Her that.
His daughter is gonna be a 4 wheeler now because he planted the seed.
Once you get bit by the wheeling bug there ain't no cure.

All other things being equal, the simplest solution is the best.

Just like the real thing - 4 cylinder and top speed of 7 MPH. She going to say dad, I need a 6 cylinder with more power. This 4 cylinder just won't go fast and it's under power.

I see that it comes with tools so when it breaks on the trail, you might get it home. Never to young to learn how to work on a jeep.

I got a car with pedals, top speed was???? Cool Jeep, I see a bigger jeep in your future.....

I could use a new one.

Nice man, I like it

You gotta see what some people have done to them, anything from more power (obviously) and also the other obvious, lifting. I think it would be sweet if someone actually lifted one to be able to flex....now that would be cool.


I am now a dealer for Iron Rock Off Road
I offer the same great products you already know about,
the same low prices you have been seeing, and with
the same experienced customer support, but I can offer it nearly 24/7

there was an awesome thread where a guy took his daughter "wheeling" in her power wheels jeep down near a stream and stuff, the threads still on here but all the pictures are gone from it

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f7/my-daughter-got-tj-512476/ obviously he reused some of the photo names for the grand cherokee photos you see in the thread now
