Hello from D'Hanis Tx

Hi- My name is Joe and I've always wanted a jeep. I test drove my first one last week. It was fun. Looking to buy a used one once a few bills are payed off.

I live in the sticks and have plenty of opportunities to offroad it. I also like the idea of rigging it out to coyote hunt at night. That is fun fun fun. Anyone have any pics of Varmint hunting rigs?

So far I know I want a 6cyl. Not sure if I want an auto or a stick. If I corn the roads(private) and hunt out of it, an auto would probably be better but than a standard. WHat do you guys think?

I enjoy browsing these forums.

Thanks

Joe

Amazing.

My first post on this forum is getting interesting quick. This has never happened before.

Anyway-

I thank you for paying your taxes. Some of those tax dollars are spent killing(controlling) coyotes and other varmints that prey on livestock.

My tax dollars is for killing terrorists.

What model wrangler are you lookin' to get? I have a 94 and I've been shoppin' off and on for a newer one. I quit lookin' for awhile, but now I'm lookin at JKs.

I'll probably just stick to my 94, but I am curious as to what other people on the market are thinkin'.

Uvalde

TexA-You wouldn't recognize Uvalde if you haven't been there in a while. It's blowing up.

Amjp- Still test driving. Haven't decided. Whatever it is it will need to have enough power to keep my beer cold and my spotlight fired up!

Welcome follow Texan from DFW! We need more support defending our state from all of the Yankees (anything North of the Red River) on here.

I don't ever shoot Coyotes. Something needs to pick up the dead Hog Bodies!

I would think you would want a Auto with a Soft Top. I like my Hard Top, but it does not work well with getting guns in and out. You might also look for an LJ. The back of my TJ is a tad short for laying down a bolt action gun. Works OK with a shorter Lever gun.

I remember when I was in high school we used to go out into the oil fields at night and spotlight rabbits. I had a Ford Ranger at the time with a manual transmission and it was really hard to drive slow enough without it stalling. If you're looking to use it for hunting then I'd lean hard toward the automatic.

Anyway, Welcome to Wrangler Forum from a fellow Texan and good luck with your search!

Welcome Joe, and hope you enyoy this forum. I just got done doing a drill site, in Montague, TX. The place is running wild, with ferril hogs. There wasn't even any bird activity, out there. I guess those wild hogs, scare off everything. The land owner, even gave us his blessings, if we saw, and shot, some of the wild hogs. Anyway, welcome, and hope you enjoy it here.
