    Not really... This is how you end up with more than one Jeep.

    I'd do it again in a heart beat! Love riding in your XJ!!!!!

    Good luck Jason! I hope you can get her to see how much fun jeeping really is. The views most people don't get to see, pictures she could take, etc. It's about the adventure, the time spent together, seeing new friends, and meeting new friends.

I have scaled back to about 2x a month now, which is fine for me.

    Re: Jeep for brains husband vs keep it on the road wife

    I must be one of the lucky ones, I married into a Jeep family. My wife grew up in Jeeps. Granted I did have a FSJ when we started dating, but I was more into older full size Chevy's. The only complaint I hear is how much I spend, then all I have to do is say " you wanted it too". Our biggest problem is getting the time to go out.

    And to make a few more of you guys jealous, she just said the other day she wants to go out shooting again since the weather is nicer.

    Re: Jeep for brains husband vs keep it on the road wife

    Relationships are about compromise and it seems that all women find the guy they like, then try to change him.

    I disagree with having the wife find her own hobby to do while you're out. That can lead to the pool boy taking care of things while you're out wheeling.

    Find other couples that wheel and go with them. Nearly all the women in the passenger seat feel the same about steep climbs and/or off camber trails. I also suggest, and this works well for everyone, end the ride with a dinner or a visit to a friends house for drinks or cookout, etc. It can make for a long day but if she get's something out of the day maybe it'll make her a bit more receptive to the hobby.

    Or, you could take the easy route and give her a 30 minute hot oil back rub after each trip!!

    Good luck, man. I hope it works out. But, in the words of the great Willie Nelson...."You know why divorces are so expensive? Because they're worth it!"

    Just putting some humor into the mix.

    Also, sounds like she doesn't like the big groups. My wife is the same when it comes to that. As fun as they are, she just doesn't get how tail gunning and taking 7 hours to go 5 miles is fun.

    Re: Jeep for brains husband vs keep it on the road wife

    I cant say much that hasnt been said in this thread other than I remind my wife that being out wheeling is better than being at the strip club or casino. At least on the trails she know Im not out picking up women.

    After that happy ending to your "I need a tow" thread I'm wondering if it's the men your wife should be worrying about!

    Re: Jeep for brains husband vs keep it on the road wife

    I guess I'm lucky, been married 41 years, my wife has lived through motorcycle racing, stock car racing, hunting day and night, and now Jeeps, rock crawling pretty hard trails. She goes about every other day when I'm out wheeling. I pick the trails based on if when she goes. She didn't go on Highway to Hell but she's been on Hal Johns in South Dakota, Holy Cross in Colorado. So she's a veteran passenger. When she goes I try to pick trails that end up in places like Telluride Colorado where she can shop, spend money, and eat in fine restaurants. I also keep the big "D" bug away by making sure I spend as much or more on her than I do on the Jeep. Yeah she has a lot of nice things but it's cheaper than a divorce. Flowers, yep, but never when she's being mean to me or on my case about something. I only send flowers and gifts when she is good to me and we're getting along. I bought her a house in Arizona so she'd have a nice place to stay in the winter, YEAH RIGHT,,,,It has a two car garage so I can keep a Jeep in AZ so when I'm down there wintering I can go play. Maybe it's just me, I have an 85 year old aunt that lives in FL that if I called her tonight and told her I was wheeling in Utah next week she'd fly in to go with me not every other day but every day! But back to the wife, she's over 60 and puts up with me, she knows it makes me happy and is tolerant of it,, I think,, because I am tolerant of her wants.

    Re: Jeep for brains husband vs keep it on the road wife

    I needed to use the family van for the weekend. So, my wife was forced to drive the jeep. She sent me this text.

    "Your car drives much better. And I may have felt a little cool driving it."

    So at least I have that going for me...
