I had a CJ back in high school (the good ole days). Needed a newer 4x so I could get around during inclement weather. So I sold the '97 F-350 4x4 8mpg guzzler, bought a 07 JK that was a repo from TX. It was very clean and the price was right.
I'm a machinist by trade, and work too many hours. Have to pay for the bumpers winch and other goods somehow...
