Hello from MD/VA/where ever the Navy sends me

Started reading these forums when I decided on deployment that I was going to buy a new Jeep. Drove a '97 Forest Green TJ for 5 years; senior year of HS and 4 years of college. It cost $1800 with 94,000 miles on it, no carpet, no A/C, half doors with soft top, manual, and a busted radio. I loved it. Unfortunately, driving back to college my senior year(9 hour trip) the 5th gear went out. Driving at 60 mph on I95 in 4th is no fun so I had to bench it(not sell it).

With gas prices the way they are and with me being out of a job for 6 months after graduation (long story), my mind was set on cheap and fuel efficient. My father happens to work at a Chrysler dealership so he helped research it out for me and found a car that seemed to fit my needs: a 2011 Dodge Avenger. Was happy with the car at first but at 10,000 miles the transmission went out .

Was covered by warranty, was fixed at no cost to me. But from then on out I hated it and missed driving my Jeep more then ever. So to remedy this, I'm going to order a 2013 CG JKR with all the things that made me like the car without me having to drive a PO... . Still working on price, looks like total cost with my options for Jeep(before taxs & fees) will be $31,200. Not only am I stoked to get back from this 9 month deployment to see family and friends, but if everything works out the way I'm planning, I'll have a new Jeep waiting for me .
