Main Topic: Family Wheeler


I have owned a few jeeps, 84 CJ7, 97TJ, and 03TJ. These rigs were great wheeling rigs for when I had no kids. Now with three kids, I want to take them out wheeling. What are a few great family rigs that you have seen out there. I am leaning toward the almighty JK but looking at the high startup cost. So what are some other great wheelers that you and your dodge loving bro would suggest? Keep it real and get out there.
