ps, somehow in my drunken stupor last night and the revival of fond memories with your post.....Great looking TJ... and I don't think you can go wrong with Gecko! It's crazy to think they get the same mileage towing when the '21 weighs 5200 lbs and the '06 was around 3750. Unreal how heavy modern cars have become...
I had a 98 Cherokee, 2 dr, 4.0L / 5spd canadian spec. It was light and fun but slow in the mountains when we loaded it for camping. I never towed with it but I wasn't all that confident in it's ability to stop in a hurry or pass anyone going up a hill. May have been the gearing though, I think stock it was geared pretty tall.

I forgor ro say very cool Jeep, love the colour, love where you are going, inspired by where you have been.
Looking forward to future updates.
Exactly, a bicycle is often the best choice.What island? Sounds like a bicycle is the answer!
First few commuting trips we're seeing 25+ miles on electric only, nearly all backroads. Jeep is estimating 26 miles all electric range when fully charged. It was a nice day out so no HVAC draw.

I want for a senior friendly pure electric Vespa.
Most e-bikes are far too aggressive for me. With a bad knee I'm not a fan of electric assist, I'd rather drive than pedal.
The other HUGE choice is reducing the commute. Reverse the trend to bedroom communities. Make EVERY residential community self sustaining. No need to commute. I am amazed even I did a 90 minute commute to work in the 1980s.... I loved my job, we loved rural living, rural schooling for the kids. BUT there must be a better way to live than driving 180 minutes every day.
NOW to try to bring this back on topic...... nope, not possible.
Beyond the energy we consume is why we consume that energy.
