Long story short: the old SUV was finally giving out. I made a list of vehicle desires and to my surprise I described a jeep. This forty-something has since found himself the recent owner of a well kept four door 2008 Wrangler. My head is still spinning but I feel like a kid in a candy store. I have no clue what a Jeep owner is but I am looking forward to finding out.
I used this forum for information to help me with my search (THANKS!) and to start making the Wrangler mine (already).
We have yet to have anyone return a wave. I told my 9 year old son that it was a rule (based upon information we read on this forum) if you own a Jeep. He has given his arm a workout.
