That's Settled  
Nin and I need to look into buying an old Jeep. Too many places around here we want to explore and need a high clearance of 4WD vehicle. We started down to here today, but it wasn't doable in a car. And it's not the first time we've been thwarted in our explorations! Our ultiame goal is to be able to do the Toroweap road which leads to this:

Somewhere along the way, Nin and I have become adventure girls. I blame Utah :D

I has no idea who Nin is, but this sounds like a blast. Enjoy it!

I wouldn't get a Jeep that's too old. Maybe an '04 or newer. I have a Liberty and I love it to bits and pieces. However, it doesn't have the best gas mileage. I know that the Grand Cherokee gets a pretty decent mpg and I think that the Wrangler does as well. Since it seems that you intend to use a Jeep for off-roading then I would not recommend the Compass. It's built too low to the ground.

Sorry for the long comment. I just love Jeeps. And with the unpredictable Colorado weather mine has certainly been a lifesaver.
