I just purchased my first Jeep, a 1990 Wrangler YJ 4-cylinder. I had been looking at getting for a while, in part because the road I live on would only be called a road in third world countries
I have owned my Jeep (named Josephine, or Josie for short) for a week now, and I have already taken her so many places I never thought a vehicle could go. It definitely radically changed my perspective on the time necessary to get places. My other car is a drastically lowered, very fast, Volvo V70, which is a lot of fun to drive, but definitely has not made me smile as often as Josie. My house is surrounded on three sides by national forest, and I am planning a camping trip very soon, with my new-found off-road capability. To finish up, I hope Josie runs for a long time, but if she ever does go to the great garage in the sky, I will buy another Jeep in a heartbeat!
