She got her Jeep.
She came home for the holidays, and I took a nice drive in her new Willys! She hadn't even tried 4WD yet, so I had some fun showing her how to shift with some tricks on how to coax it in (slight roll,  wheels straight ahead, etc).
It's a Cadillac compared to my TJ Jeep. So nice. It's the gas V6, and it's pretty peppy, more HP, but not as torquey at idle as the 4.0. It's easy to stall unlike the ol' straight 6 Jeep engines.
Manual trans shifts nice, but I didn't drive it enough to figure out if the last two speeds are overdrive. (it's a 6 speed)
Anyway, I like it. It's huge, but I like it.
