4 years and finally i have a jeep!

I traded my husband's truck for my wrangler and wanted to know how you guys thought I did. Some details:
truck was a 1996 F-150 XLT 4x4 ext. Cab with 171k miles. When I made the trade it ran strong and smooth. Always maintained needed nothing mechanically but it did have rusted out fenders and the cab corners were starting to get bad.
The jeep is a 1997 4.0 manual needs a power steering pulley and a new brake line. For about $30 it will be in great driving condition. Has 151k miles and the transmission has pretty much been rebuilt (he gave me about $3000 in receipts from the last year) jeep was undercoated when new so there is no rust underneath. It does have a small rust spot on drivers side fender (not too bad for Michigan) also has brand new larger tires. I think they are about 29"
Let me know how you guys think I did.
I tried to upload photos but I haven't figured that out yet :-)
