I love how these forums wander...But back to the root of the post
I have learned;
I should have never waited until 50 years old to buy a Jeep
My grandson's first vehicle will be a Jeep if I have any say in the matter (and I do).
The heater resistor pack is a pain in the ass to replace.
But the answer to how to do it (and to basically every thing that can go wrong with a Jeep) is found right here on the Wrangler Forum.
My wife loves riding shotgun but will not drive it (a good thing)
A rolled car is totaled--a rolled Jeep now has character.
The Arizona desert is best seen with a Jeep off the beaten path.
Wave at all Jeeps--regardless of doors (or lack thereof). A wave back is a bonus but I don't expect it--their issue, not mine.
Besttop Supertops are the best!
The faster you go, the higher you need to turn the volume
Keep the mud and dust on the Jeep as long as you can--rare desert rain makes it a great day to wash it off.
You don't need automatic windows--I forgot how much I missed the crank.
If you cannot get the back seat out as the latch mechanism is somehow broken then it was not meant to come out anymore--just learn to live with it.
If you cannot learn to live with it there is always a blowtorch solution.
Old grayed out fenders can be made black and new looking again with that same blowtorch (just go easy on the flame).
I will own a Jeep until the day I die--and then the kids can fight over it!
