Cool new to this site but not to jeeps

I have owned a 1992 jeep wrangler, a 2001 jeep wrangler Sahara, I had to get rid of that one after having children. Then I purchased my baby a 1997 Jeep wrangler sport I sank about 4,000 dollars in paint and accessories in 2009. On 10 Dec 2012 a old man struck my Jeep totaling it, well according to his insurance company it needed to be totaled out. I begged and pleaded for them to fix it and not to total it out. Their final answer was to total it out for 7,500 us dollars. I WAS PISSED OFF. You can't find a jeep that was the quality of mine for 7500 dollars. I have always wanted a 4 door jeep but me being a Sheriffs deputy, it was not in our budget. I am in the Navy reserves and am going to Kuwait in March. I needed to find a replacement soon. At first I found a 2007 Jeep wrangler 4 door X 2 wdr was not that excited about it because of the 2wdr and not 4wdr. I always thought it was stupid to have a 2wdr Jeep. Well I got the check from the bank for 12,900 dollars to pick it up. Well I got there and being a jeep owner for years I noticed it was a piece of crap. There were burn holes in the seat, several dents and scratches. it appeared that some kid owned it and just went wild through the woods with it. The boot around the shifter was broken along with the plastic around it. How in the hell do you break that!!! What does someone do to break that. Well I took my check back to the bank. That was yesterday. Today this morning my oldest daughter wakes me up and states I found you a jeep. A 2008 Jeep wrangler 4 door power everything 4 wheel drive a dream come true. I got the check from the bank, and guess what ??? It was the most awesome jeep I ever looked at, it was flawless. I bought it for 16500. I am now happy and looking for ways to enhance it. Hey every body here hope you enjoy the post.
