I have had the Jeep since 2007 and dumped tons of money into it with a lift, tires, bumpers, ect......only to go out and break parts off-roading it and spending more money. I also was using the Jeep as my DD most days since I owned it.

In Michigan I could take the Jeep out and play many places near my house. Now that I am in metro ATL there are not many places close by to use the Jeep off-road and I was only getting around 12MPG in traffic here.

The Jeep also had 177K miles on it vs the 106K on the Focus.
