    My attempt at Being a JL Salesman

    So my wife wants a new ride... sheís currently in a 13 Honda Accord. Its a great vehicle with good mileage. She drives a lot for work being in Sales... and mpg is an issue. But with our boys getting older, she is ready for a slightly larger vehicle that sits higher. To make a short story long.... We finally sat in a JL... Holy Crap is the interior Nice!!! She loved it too.. But Iím having a hard time selling it, being that Iím currently building our JKU... She likes the JLU but she says ďWe have a JeepĒ and itís a little small... so we test drove a 4 runner and she really likes the size & feel of it.

    Iíve tried every sales pitch... Shit, I knew more about the JL than the Real Salesman.. lol. Mileage on both the Yota and the Jeep are the same and not great for her work.... but when stepping up to that size without looking like a soccer mom... the choices are slim. The Cherokee & Compass are a no go... But Iím still trying to push the JL... Weíll see what happens.

    Just wanted to share and maybe hear YOUR sales pitch.... Iíll keep you updated.

    My attempt at Being a JL Salesman

    1) unless your toes look that good, you should let the buyer drive the Jeep. Itíll cause her to have an emotional bond and feeling with the vehicle.

    2) show her all the custom stuff you can do for her Jeep lol (hide the prices).

    3) Jeep girls are obviously much more attractive.

    4) from my experience, women, like driving with the top off. Go on a drive with the top off (the car that it is).

    Without knowing more about what sheís into or likes, canít really advice much more. My wife hated the stock look of my JL but loves it a lot more with the new wheels and add-ons. She also loved riding with the panels removed.

    Show her a picture of my wife's Jeep and how much fun she's had building it. We get each other Jeep parts for birthdays/Christmas/etc. Win-win.

    Not a bad idea.... Donít think sheís into Pink though.. lol. The hardest thing to sell her on is in regards to the amount she drives daily from customer to customer .... and The only Mod I could see is wheels. She doesnít want to build & wheel in it. (So she says) haha.

    You said the Cherokee and the Compass are a no-go. Did you guys check out the Grand Cherokee? My wife wants to trade in her Infiniti for a Grand Cherokee Trailhawk. She wants something suited to Colorado, but doesn't want a Wrangler. She was a motorhead/speed junkie when we met, but is completely turned off by the Grand Cherokee SRT and Trackhawk.

    The Grand feels like too much vehicle to her... She didnít like the looks of the standard Cherokee and the Compass felt cramped with poor visibility.

    If your wife is anything like mine, the more you push for something the less likely it is that she'll agree

    My wife daily drives our JL and she loves it. Also tell your wife that you can look at it as an investment if you keep it long enough for your kids to drive one day. There arenít many vehicles that age as well as the Wrangler and I would expect that at least to one of your boys would appreciate driving a 5-10 year old wrangler. Sell it to your wife that itís an investment. Your kidís car will be paid for when they start driving and itís one they would probably love to have. Then you can tell yourself ďitís for the kidsĒ Every time you make a payment.
