Now I am officially a wrangler owner

hello guys and gals! I bought a wrangler and so I figure I can do a intro thread legit now HAHA!

My jeep is a 2001 TJ 4 cyl auto hard top 2" lift or budget boost 31" tires aftermarket fender flairs nice simple alum wheels. and a ramsey 8k winch.

I had inherited my girlfriends 96 ford ranger and not being a ford person I just wasnt feeling it. I seen this jeep and thought it looked good and decided to test drive it just for fun. Yea its under powered and the auto will probably kill the milage but its super clean. It has 23,156 miles on it. Its practically new! Anyway the dealer said he would give me $2500 for the ranger and the deal was SOLD! The price was $10,995. At the bank they blue booked the jeep at $13,000.

I drove it off the lot a little after closing time and it was already dark so pics will have to wait until tomorrow.

I AM STOKED!!!

Welcome and see above ... we like to be polite, but sometimes get a little bent when you don't wave back.

As promised heres a few pics. Cell phone pics while my camera batteries charge. This was this morning before I took it to get the tires swapped out. Thats where it is at right now.

I had put brand new goodyear "wrangler" MTRs on the ranger I had and traded in. The dealer said since they was the same size (31x10.50x15) I could swap the new tires onto my new jeep. I had the tires siped and they are AWESOME in the snow and ice. I cant wait to have them on the jeep and maybe go do a little snow wheeling this afternoon.

Nice looking Jeep.... but man I can't stand the chrome bezels on an awesome looking blackout vehicle (and the hardtop windows would look better with some dark tint). But I'm just jealous because I can't justify buying a winch until I get mine stuck. Just a matter of time, maybe 12 inches of snow this weekend in MD.
