Third Jeep, first wrangler

Hello from MN. A couple days ago I just picked up an unlimited Rubicon in Anvil. I've had a 5.9 Grand Cherokee and a Grand Cherokee in the past, but always wanted a Wrangler. Loving it so far...can't wait for my ceiling hoist for the hard top (used The Forum to make that choice, thanks!) so I can go topless!! Hopefully this will stop my insane car turnover since the 5.9 Cherokee. I got a job with a 160 mile daily commute and the 5.9 gas mileage wasn't cutting it, so I bought an extra car, a Saturn L200 and my wife somehow stole the 5.9 then traded it for the 2nd GC. I went Saturn -> Volvo -> Audi S4 -> Ford Fusion -> Ford Focus ST -> Wrangler. I have to admit the ST was very fun...except in the winter...but not as fun as the Wrangler. If I'd have known these things were that fun, I'd have bought one years ago.

I knew it was a done deal the second I drove it. Thank goodness the salesman didn't!

Do you mean 'the wave' as in the fact that every person in a Wrangler I've passed has waved at me since I got this?

Yep. Consider yourself lucky. You'll never drive anywhere again without meeting a friend!

Yeah, I wasn't warned about 'the wave', so the first other Wrangler owner just got a surprised nod, but I've been prepared since.
