J is for Jeep Jogging Stroller Review & Giveaway #BabyMustHaves #JisJeep

As a Mom of 3 kids, two of which were pretty much back to back pregnancies I never had much time to really loose the baby weight. Yeah, my oldest is 11, so?! 

In high school I was in JROTC and ran at least 2 miles EVERY day. I even ran a bit after high school. I enjoyed it. Running was a big stress reliever for me. 

Fast forward 11 years and I am about 60lbs overweight. I am part of the Nutrisystem Blogging Program and have lost 20lbs. I knew that diet alone wasn't enough so I needed to get off my butt and exercise. I started running again, very slowly. 

Having small kids they usually like to be a part of whatever Mommy is doing. To solve this I simply strap one in my J if for Jeep Jogging stroller and hit the pavement. 



Being a Kolcraft Mom I had the opportunity to be one of the first ones to test out the new 

J is for Jeep® Wrangler Sport Jogger


When the box arrived I was a little nervous to put it together. I am proud to say I did it by myself. My only mishap was the front wheel. But I quickly fixed it.









The directions are really easy and assembly quick. Well, as quick as it could be when your 2 year old is "helping" you.

Here are some of the amazing features of the J is for Jeep Jogging Stroller

* Compatible with many popular infant car seats { no adaptor is required } including Baby Trend, Britax, Chicco, Cosco, Graco, Peg Perego and Safety 1st.
* iBaby sounds system connects to your iPod or MP3 player
* 16 inch  rear air filled tires for jogging comfort and increased performance on uneven surfaces
* Forward-locking front wheel provides increased wheel base and stability while jogging, swivels for everyday use
* Shock absorbing suspension system keeps the ride smooth
* Smart handle adjusts to multiple heights
* Multi position reclining seat
* Large underseat storage basket can be accessed from the front or back of the stroller
* Convenient free stand design stands upright when folded
* Child cup holder for easy access to cup/bottle
* Adjustable 5 point harness and safety tether for safety
* 60lbs child weight capacity 
* JPMA Certified
* One year manufacture warranty


Some of Party of 5's favorite features include:

* 2 cup holders!
* a large canopy
* one touch brake system
* extra large storage basket
* iBaby sound system
* adjustable handle




Jogging with my J is for Jeep Jogging Stroller is amazing, the suspension is wonderful and the girls and I love that we can jam to our music as we get in a nice run. I love the ease of the stroller as well as the comfort for my toddlers!

My only wish is that the J is for Jeep Jogging Stroller came in a Double since sometimes both girls want to go for a run with me. 
Oh and that the iBaby system was a bit louder!

I love that the "Smart Handle®" adjusts to multiple heights because I'm taller than the average women and I hate bending over to reach handles.

I like the iBaby feature

Eileen said...

This would be for my daughter who lives in an area where their driveway and portion of the street, plus some of park trail is gravel. Because of this, I think the best feature for a stroller for her lil' guy would be:

"16 inch rear air-filled tires for jogging comfort and increased performance on uneven surfaces"

If I could pick her out her first stroller, I'd pick this type ALONE just for this reason. So many stroller wheels have a "mind of their own" and/or break down so easily on gravel. Having air filled tires is AWESOME! Thank you!
