NICE!...yellow has always been one of my favorite colors.
I think the nicest color Jeep has is "Anvil"! It's a gray/steel color!

Already have a Tacoma no want or need for an inferior vehicle. :)
:lol: My first 6 new vehicles were all Toyota 4x4 trucks...all GREAT vehicles!
1985, 87, 91, 95, 99 and 2002.
Pretty plain Jane compared to what's available now.
Then moved to the SUVs. Currently running an Xterra.

The Jeep was purchased as a project vehicle to teach my son automotive skills and fabrication. It was a great bonding experience, especially during those "I know it all" high school teenager years!
Love to find an old mid/late 80's 4x4 toyota with good frame and decent body to make a project out of.

As much as I love my Jeep, I wish I had the funds for a 4Runner. The older I get, the more I desire more cargo room and a more comfortable ride. That being said, I can't imagine not enjoying my summers with the top off the Jeep and my beautiful wife by my side.
New 4runners are really nice. I like having the external cargo room vs an SUV though. Bikes are for when I just want to enjoy a nice warm day.

Maybe in FL!
My first 85 was sprung front and rear! That would be the one to build!

Seems like anything labeled a truck is way over priced here. Ford Rangers in particular. Just do a search on CL in Phoenix. 4 to 6 grand and above for a 15 to 20 year old Ford Ranger with a 100 grand on the clock. Chevys the same. If it says Jeep get your wallet out.
Learned that when I got my Tacoma, my original intent was to get something a couple years old with less then 40k miles on it, 2-3 year old models with 30-40k miles were all going for over $27k. Ended up going new since it would only a few thousand more.

Yeah have to be something thats lived its life in the south, anything from up north will be riddled with rust from years of road salt. Good frame and cab are only impotent things to me rest could be replaced with aftermarket stuff.

I guess the Patriot doesn't count as a Jeep even though it was on the front & back. I traded it in on my current Chevy Silverado Z71 4X4 (which just went into the shop :(( )

So if we are hijacking this thread to all SUV's, in 2014 I replaced my 2001 Tahoe with 335K miles on it for a 2015 Tahoe which now has 125K miles on it and still going fairly strong. I gave my old Tahoe to my daughter in law and she has been driving it for the last four years.

I replaced the 2015's battery and now for the first half hour or so, the rear dome light briefly flashes whenever you brake or signal (left only, believe it or not). Checked the internet and it is a thing, not a recall, only covered under warranty if you complain about it while it is in effect (I got the 100K extended). Just nuts. Can't fix it because the new light is impossible to find. Oh well.

Funny(ish) Jeep story, my idiot brother in law parked his yellow and black Jeep with the rock crawling exoskeleton on it across the street when he last visited. When he left and pulled away, the pipes caught the neighbor's mailbox and pulled the post right out. Never even noticed. I had to pay for the new one.

I had a 1970 Toyota Land Cruiser that I bought new in Texas. A great Jeep that I had for 5 years. Not one problem except the rear main bearing leak oil. Seemed to be a problem with the Toyota straight six from 1970.

Those old Land Cruisers were awesome. A buddy of mine bought one a few years back and did a re-build. Sweet ride.

Old ones fetch a pretty nice price too, considered looking for one to do as a project.

Had the opportunity to buy an FJ40 when I was in college from a guy who was the main mechanic at a Toyota dealership that had his own service business on the side. He did some nice work to it...but unfortunately at the time I didn't have the $7K he was asking! Now the damn thing would be worth probably be worth more than $25K just as it sat!!! I looked for one before buying the Jeep as a project vehicle, but soon found they're getting STUPID money for these things!!!

Another example would be the Toyota FJ. Highest resale of any vehicle so I have read.

Pricey out this way.

I've got two Jeep Comanche pickups, one longbed and a short bed. Both have the 4.0 inline six cyclinder, great engines. The short bed has almost 300,000 miles, only major repair was a clutch, still purrs like a new one.
