Welcome from a Navy man.

License to kill gophers by the government of the United Nations. Man, free to kill gophers at will. To kill, you must know your enemy, and in this case my enemy is a varmint. And a varmint will never quit - ever. They're like the Viet Cong - Varmint Cong. So you have to fall back on superior intelligence and superior firepower. And that's all she wrote.

Ex Navy here, too. Congrats! I waited over 30 years for mine, and have spent the last year kicking myself in the tail for waiting so long. Loved some of my rides in that time, but none of 'em were a Jeep!

Looks good. Never knew I wanted a jeep until last year. Never knew what I was missing.

Retired air force.

I tried to be good, but I got bored...

Didn't want you to be the only former Marine to post, so Congrats! I checked out some 2011 Rubicons yesterday and really liked the new tan color. Enjoy the Jeep!

There are very few vehicles that can be defined as "made for offroad". Unfortunately, the Wrangler can definitely be defined as "made for offroad" by its inability to handle well on road
