I sold all of mine, I owned my 97 tj the longest, I think 4 years (98-02)

Other than that my superduty is my longest owned vehicle coming up on 2 years in 2 weeks.

I bought my 75 Wagoneer on Good Friday in 1997. It's in my barn thinking about what to do with it next.

I got my 01 Wrangler in October 2000 if I remember right. It was a factory order and I was supposed to have it around Labor Day, but I remember it was a few weeks late.

I destroy them about every 9-13 months, rebuild a new one in 6 hrs, destroy it in 6 months etc etc. With that said the eb lasted the longest at almost 1.5 yrs. Which is now torn apart in my driveway

Got the xj in 99. Stripped it to a bare shell and used all the parts to build the Comanche from an empty shell in 2007. So it's more or less the same jeep, so 13 years.

5 years on the XJ now. I will most likely keep it at least one more year, but maybe not.

Had the 78 F150 for 15 years. Would be scared to find out how much I have into it, but it will probably never be finished.

Yes, thanks.

I had my first jeep a little shy of 4 years.

I have had the current pile of parts for ~ 2-3 years.
