Don't let the age scare you. This Jeep is well cared and maintained and aching to get you to the beach. It is a 5-speed that has a newer top, carpet, CD player with Bluetooth / AUX in / USB hookup ready to play your favorite tunes. This is an extra car that is usually available all of the time. Instruction on how to lower top will be provided if needed. No OFF-ROADING. Please outline a brief description of what your intentions are when renting the Jeep. I want to be sure it's returned in the same condition it's rented out in. No heat. It's a jeep in FL :-) She has a newer top and new paint and is a real looker. I want to keep her that way. Thank you for your interest and happy Jeeping! Vehicle is located near St Pete Beach. Airport pickups are available to provide transportation to the Jeep not actual airport delivery.

I love the whole concept of Turo but the business model is only as good as the people behind it. Joel is "good people" and it's such a great experience to skip the corporate rental counter and connect with a "local" especially when they originally hail from Western New York. Go Bills!!!
Joel and his Jeep were great and made our Spring Break in Clearwater, FL that much better. Great vehicle with definite cool factor. Fun to drive as it is a manual transmission - was highlight of the trip for me as I miss driving a manual.
Kids loved riding in it. Was just a great addition to our trip and will be part of the overall memory of Spring Break 2017 for us.
Joel was great, very accommodating and was able to change to a more convenient pick-up location and schedule based upon our travel plans.
The next time we are in the area and want a Jeep to have fun in, I'll contact Joel first!
I booked this with Joel same day and hours before I wanted to pick up. Joel was working. He had a set pickup point and the car was dirty from the spring pollen in the air.
Despite the short notice, the lingering mile high obstacles of time, work and travel distance ... Joel washed, cleaned, the car, was early at pick up point, didn't eat lunch, and work right on his heels to get back. He didn't let that phase him either as he had nothing but smiles and gratitude and was happy to rent the jeep out. Even joked about it.
I would definitely rent from him again and I would highly recommend him if you are stress, worried and running late.
We are Jeep enthusiasts having owned several in the past and Joel's Jeep certainly did not disappoint, the jeep was impeccably clean, and operated perfectly...Joel was super cool to deal with and we did try and rent the Jeep for another trip in a few weeks however it was already booked... Better jump on it while you can ! You will love cruising around in this Lil beach cruiser :)
Not a single bad thing to say. Joel is a great guy, had an Uber waiting for me at the airport and drove me back personally. I had to extend the rental for a day and was no problem whatsoever. I can't wait to rent the jeep again on my next visit! Makes me feel like I'm at home. Thanks so much for everything!
Joel was amazing from start to finish. His Jeep was in great shape and even surprised my girlfriend with a little wine. We had so much fun driving this Jeep and his customer service was outstanding. Would return anytime.
Being a newbie to Turo and having my very first trip canceled by a hiccup from the owner was disappointing. However things turn around rather quickly after modifying my dates and BAM! The ultimate vehicle appeared. I must admit I didn't get my hopes up but after receiving an email from customer relations all doubts had diminished. Joel excepted my trip and "the red beast" delivered. It not only proved to be the perfect vehicle for a beach excursion but a Florida must! I use to own a CJ7 and although very similar...this Jeep had a surprisingly much smoother ride. Thanks Joel for an awesome experience and the Turo family for being a stellar organization!
Wow... This Jeep was AMAZING. I had the BEST trip. Joel was incredible and very flexible with me. He was so kind and really helped me out. The Jeep was fun and easy to drive, and having the stereo that linked with my phone was awesome. I had the top down a majority of the time, but when the top was up the AC worked very well. Could go on and on about how great of a time I had... now to convince my wife that we need one, ourselves!
We rented Joel's Jeep for the day and it was awesome! Beautiful weather for it, the Jeep ran great no hassles with getting the jeep. Easy pick up and drop off. We will defiantly use Turo again in the future.
The Jeep was awesome and Joel was super easy to work with. I would recommend this Jeep to anyone that is looking for a top down experience at the Jeep. Will renting the Jeep again if ever in the area again. Thanks Joel!
Personable and enthusiastic, Joel was a great advisor regarding all aspects of my first experience with Turo. In addition to the Jeep being a blast, Joel offered sage advice in becoming an eventual Jeep owner!
Joel was great to deal with and his Jeep Wrangler convertible is in excellent condition. We had a lot of fun renting it for two days which wasn't as expensive as renting from the large rental car companies. We look forward to renting Joel's Jeep in the future.
Absolutely beautiful Jeep in excellent condition! Had a beautiful day cruising around downtown and the beach. Pick up and drop off arrangements went smoothly with Joel. Excellent experience, I highly recommend Joel and his Jeep.
Joel was awesome!!! He picked us up at the airport and dropped us off with no problems at all. The jeep was in great shape, full of gas, clean and showed us how everything works. I would highly recommend renting his jeep. When I visit Tampa again I will be sure to rent Joel's jeep.
This truck made my trip. 5 speed manual always makes driving fun and it's funny to see other jeep owners waving at you like you belong to the same club. Truck is clean , mechanically sound and Joel is a great guy. The truck was a hit with the ladies. Nothing beats hair blowing in the wind cruising the beaches. Rent this truck you'll be glad you did .
I've had the Turo app for some time now. However, this was the first time I had a chance to use it. Renting with Joel was spot-on! Especially considering the fact that my decision was same day. I appreciate his flexibility. ...and the Jeep!... It made Tampa that much better! See you next time I'm in Tampa Joel!
First time using Turo. Joel left a great impression. The vehicle was clean and ready to go when I got there. At my request he showed me how to take the top off and put it back on. Then we did the paper work and I was on my way. I will be using Turo again in the future!!
