Nahhhhh, you never get to old. This is the second Jeep Wrangler we have bought, the first was an 2003 traded a Volvo in on the Jeep and never looked back. In 2007 we bought our second Wrangler and we love it. You are right about hauling gear (Not Much Room), thats why we added the rack system. Now I must say our kids are mostly grown, our youngest (Natalie) is now 17 years old. When they get that age they don't and won't ride with dad & mom. (Its embarasing if their friends would see them riding with us
) So I told my wife lets take the back seat out and add the rack system to organize the gear in the Jeep.
A funny thing, after we took the back seat out, a question came from our daughter "What if I want to ride along", Go figure
Mark ... Listen do you hear that ? ... "Listen"... Hear That ? ... Yep, I hear a Jeep Wrangler calling your name ... Hee Hee
