Hey everyone..

Hello everyone!!


New to the forum but not to Jeeps. After trading off my Jeep Wrangler in 1999 for a pick up ( needed something to haul horses around in ) I missed it. I've been itching to get another one so this past week I got up and went to a local dealership and picked out my new 2008 Jeep Wrangler X.

I can't believe all the stuff they've got in them these days. Power windows?? When I got my first jeep it had a tape deck in it and I thought that was schnazzy. It didn't even have a clock. I went and bought one of those little round digital clocks and stuck it to the dash. This jeep is pretty darn posh.

I've missed this. I've been walking around with a stupid grin on my face all week. People don't really understand what's gotten into me. LOL- The first night I brought it home I kept looking in the garage to see if it was really there.

I'm a dork. Love me.


WOOHOO!!!

Are you kidding? I took photo's of it at the dealership the night before I brought it home. Sadly, I haven't been able to take it out and enjoy it a whole lot due to illness and that pesky work schedule.. So here she be in my driveway...

Welcome!

Welcome, hikerchick, to the best Jeep Wrangler forum in existence! Glad to have you back in the Jeep fold and along for the ride! BTW, my wife and I used to raise and show Appaloosas for a number of years; lived on the Ohio border by Richmond, IN. Showed horses all over Indiana. But, that was many years ago. Again, welcome!

Yeah, your life sucks. LOL.. I'd trade you about now. I went outside this morning and thought "Wow, it's warm out today,"

Yeah, it was 20 degrees.

That just shows how cold it's been.

Well I'll be in Indy next weekend so I'm sure I'll feel your pain. I do miss the winters sometimes though.

We need all the female jeepers we can get to show these guys how to wheel The rest of my family owns horses and are trainers/instructers etc. I used to tell them Jeeps are cheaper than horses, now i'm not to sure
