Top 5 Reasons Moms should Drive Jeep Wranglers


The more I drive my Jeep, the more I am so glad I bought it. It has been an amazing journey, and has been very therapeutic for me in so many ways. 

A little over a year ago, I posted on my blog the Top 3 Reasons every Mom should drive a Jeep.




Now after another year has passed, I have found I need to expand that list to my Top 5 Reasons every mom should drive a Jeep Wrangler.


The first Top 3 on my list 
1. Good Bye to carpools -- because there were less seats in the Jeep then my mini-van which means no more listening to other people's bratty kids. 
2. Snow days are more fun in a Jeep. 
3. Those Calgon "Take Me Away" days are so much better in a Jeep.

Since my introduction to off-roading, my new found love, I would like to add two more reasons every mom should drive a Jeep Wrangler.

Off-Roading
Last May, I took a lesson to learn to drive my Jeep on the trails, and at the time little did I know, I found my new favorite activity. Taking my Jeep out on the trails and tackling those rocks is exhilarating and challenging.
As a stay at home mom, the need to find challenges is a constant for me, from advocating for my children; to taking on volunteer roles to make a difference; to new find new challenges in the great outdoors.  Off-Roading gives you a sense of power you can do anything.



Do-it-Yourself Modifications

With so many Wrangler Unlimited's out on the highways and bi-ways, I had a particular desire to make my Jeep look unique to me. With limited funds, it became a challenge. So -- I decided to make the changes to my Jeep in my own garage. So far I have added a front bumper, rock sliders, lights and some other smaller changes. It has been extremely rewarding knowing I made these changes on my own with some help from the great online Jeep community.


It has been a huge sense of accomplishment, which I needed. As a stay-at-home mom for 15 years trying to break back into the work force, I have felt very discouraged and dismayed. But being able to accomplish these types of modifications on my own has been a great accomplishment, and has given my the renewed confidence I needed. 

I plan on continuing to modify my Jeep on my own, and still search out a new career as I reach this new phase in my life. With the positive power my Jeep plays on me, who knows maybe I will become a mechanic!
