Fit or Fun?

August 5, 2010

Jeep Image

There is something about this Jeep that has me rethinking our plans.  As I mentioned earlier, our existing car isn’t suitable to tow, so we’ll eventually have to replace it with something else.  We had pretty much decided on getting a Honda Fit for a whole host of really boring practical reasons.  It’s inexpensive, light weight, has plenty of cargo capacity, gets great gas mileage, Zzzzzzzzzz.

But lately we’ve been running into a fair number of unpaved roads, which I didn’t really expect in the North East.  I’m wondering what we’ll encounter when we head west.  So we’ve been thinking that the dainty little Fit might not get us everywhere we want to go.  And how practical is that?

And then today we see this bad boy, tricked out for serious off-roading.  It even has the requisite mud splatters to prove it is legit.  But there is something else here that I can’t quite put my finger on.  I’m not sure exactly what it is, but for some reason I really want a Jeep now.

Only on a Jeep Image

    We’ve been a jeep family for many a long year. We bought our first, a Cherokee Limited, in 1988. James, my younger son, owned a couple of second-hand CJ-7s (one bright orange) in his late teens and early 20s. We bought a Jeep Grand Cherokee in 2000 and a Liberty in 2003 when the Cherokee Limited finally died (first time it had ever left us on the side of the road in 15 years).

    Go for the Jeep! Just make sure the hood is sufficiently cooled before you embark on your, ahem, other activites.

    So it looks like the female vote count is unanimously in favor of the Jeep. Interesting.

    You can’t go hard top though. You have to go bikini top. It’s the only way!
