Our "TOAD" is a 2018 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon (JL) with a lot of aftermarket upgrades.  Through the years, we have owned a lot of vehicles (i.e. - Nissan Maxima, Lexus 300ES, Lexus 300GS, Lexus 450 LX, GMC Denali, Chrysler 300, Mercedes 550 CLS, Jeep Wrangler Unlimited JK, Mercedes 300SLK & Chevy Corvette Grand Sport), hands down the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon has been the best vehicle for us thus far.  We are proud to be part of the Jeep family.  The Jeep Wrangler is  great vehicle & is a lot of fun to work on.  As you can see from the picture, Eric has gone a little crazy with all the after market upgrades.  He has mentioned multiple times that our Jeep has been his "therapy".  Working  on the Jeep has helped him transition into retirement by allowing for him to stay busy with projects.  

The Jeep Wrangler is one of the easiest vehicles we have found to set up for flat towing behind an RV.  It takes less than 5 minutes to set the Jeep up.
