The Tomster's here

Hi, fellow Jeepers.

My name is Tom and I live in western Kentucky. I'm 62 years old, soon to be 63 (hopefully ).

I sold my 2001 Sport on 12/18/11. I couldn't stand being Jeepless, so I bought my current 2012 Sport with the S order package on 3/21/12, a week ago today. I got the six speed tranny. She's white with a black soft top.

My last Jeep was beat all to pieces from running the trails at Turkey Bay Off Highway Vehicle Area in Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area. I had her locked front and rear and she was on 33" tires with an OME lift. She had lots of armor and a Warn 9.5Ti winch.

I named her "Thelma Jane" so she would have the initials T and J, since she was a TJ. She was a factory order and I kept her 11 years and 10 days. I don't know what possessed me to sell her. She was set up great for the trails and I had a Corolla S to drive as my daily driver.

My current Jeep is going to stay stock and will be my daily driver. I traded-in the Corolla to get her.

Yep, she is going to be a Mall Crawler, and I even named her "Molly Jane." I will do some light off roading with her, but that's it.

I like her very much so far. That 3.6 L Pentastar engine is great! I have only filled her up once and I got 19.1 MPG. That is great mileage for a Jeep in my opinion.

You know you drive a TJ when you have the parts for the mod, the right tools for the job, a BFH & still need a Sawzall to get the job done!

None of this stuff for Molly Jane. This was my old Jeep, "Thelma Jane."
