These Beautiful Jeeps
In America...the land where it all began...
Seriously, I wish these were available and affordable in India...

A nice couple of Wranglers on a Washington Street and Pittsburgh Street and the wonderfully comfortable and loaded Jeep Patriot 4x4 rental that we used to drive from Washington to cold and snowy Pittsburgh through the Allegheny Mountain Pass Tunnel last weekend...

Truly lovely vehicles...

Anyone who loves the Jeep Marque will enjoy reading these books.

The first is highly informative and interesting. Like a definitive Jeep book.
The second one has great pictures.

Both available easily on Kindle.

The pic of the old Army type Willys, I couldnt resist adding because I happened to see it at a local garage yesterday...

And here's the little Renegade.
Apparently they are no longer selling the 4WD version of the Renegade here in Dubai. Only FWD Master Editions Longitude.
Its got a full sized spare with alloy and around as much boot space as my Yeti.
How sad that they've knocked off selling the 4WD here! Wonder what caused this decision.

And while its overall size is quite like my Yeti, it is still somehow bigger, boxier and seems tougher and more rugged.
