Greetings fellow Martians..., ah, I mean Jeepheads..

Hello everyone!

I just picked up a used '04 Wrangler in the worst color ever. Silver. But, the price was pretty damned awesome so I jumped on it. It has a lift under it already from the prior owner. Looked like they were attempting to build a rock crawler as they trimmed out the front fenders. Currently running 31X 10.5s

A bit of background on myself, This is my 5th Jeep. Once bitten by the Jeep bug, there is no going back. lol

My first Jeep was an 80 CJ7 with a 304 AMC V8 and the worst auto tranny ever made. The engine was bullet proof but the Transmission had to have the torque converter replaced 3 times in 2 years with little to no off roading in that time period.

Second Jeep was a '59 willies CJ5. It had a small block V8 and crawler gearing. Unfortunately I just got out of college and could not afford to fix it up. Lots of body cancer.

Third was one of the last of the YJs. It had the updated 4 cylinder and some of the nice features or the TJ. My now ex killed it. We traded it for a Grand Cherokee.

The Grand Cherokee was a great Jeep, but it was not a CJ\Wrangler.

Now it has been several years since I got rid of the Grand. I was driving a Chevy Aveo. ##shudder## It was a great fair weather car, but add the snow we get in the wonderful land of western So. Dak. and it is worthless. I will miss the great fuel economy but that does me no good if it can't get me to work. lol

I will post pics of the TJ when I get a chance to take some. Looking forward to learning more about the TJ platform as I am use to CJs and YJs.
