Old Jeeper from PA checking in...

Hi All... here's my story,

Way back... many years ago (when I was just a kid) I said to myself that one day I would like to own a "Jeep" (the 2 Door Wrangler Style).. but somehow as I grew older, I drifted away and purchased more than a few non-Jeep vehicles. Then about 20 years ago, remembering my original plan as a kid, I decided to finally buy my first Jeep.. except by now, I also had a wife and a couple of kids to think about.. so the time just wasn't right for the 2 Door Wrangler style vehicle.. so we purchased a 4 Door 1990 Cherokee instead.

Well.. as you can see below, over the years since my first Cherokee.. I have owned more than a few Jeeps.. (but still no Wrangler!)

But now the time is finally right.. the kids are grown and off on their own.. and it's just the wife and me.. so we're finally gonna get it right... we're finally going to buy our first Wrangler!

We both love hiking, camping and the great outdoors, so we really feel that a Wrangler will be a good fit to our current lifestyle.

Looking to buy...
2011 Wrangler Sport 2 DR (S Package) Flame Red - Dual Top

Currently own...
2003 Grand Cherokee Limited 4.7L V8 Inferno Red (will probably trade for the Wrangler)
2004 Liberty Limited 3.7L (Spare Vehicle)
1995 Grand Cherokee Limited 4.0L (Old Faithful.. still runs great!)


Previous Jeeps...
1995 Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0L (this Jeep was killed by a drunk in a head-on crash)
1990 Cherokee 4.0L (My First Jeep)
