    Default New toy 4 the wife?

    Looks like she might get her wish and a new/used 4 door. Some stupid &#($&^@#* rear ended me today at lunch. Luckily I had the van. It is repairable but it may be just the argument she needs to convince me. What are the pros & cons on the 4 doors everybody? I have not checked them out.

    That sucks. I am thankful we haven't had any accidents yet with my wifes van or my Jeep.
    I know if I could afford it, I would get one in a heartbeat. Main reason being is room for the whole family to go out drivin, instead of just four of us. Plus you have to look at storage space behind the rear seat. But everyone has their own preferences.

    I like them for all the reasons mentioned above. The reason I bought an XJ instead of a TJ was so I could fit 2 car seats, stroller, camping/skiing equipment etc.

    We were looking at the JK until we realized that we needed something to pull a trailer with our jeep on it, so we dropped the JK and got my wife a pickup truck

    Depends on the obstacle. In some situations a longer wheelbase is better.
