Biting the bullet

Tomorrow I start asking for price quotes. Hopefully have it on order within a week or so.
Base everything on fun & work to be done.
Why buy a hammer no matter how good if one needs a screwdriver ???
Will also be used in support of consulting and photography businesses. GM is one of our clients, but not Jeep.
One of uses is to take a point on a topo map and figure out how to get there no matter what the terrain.
Front bumper and winch will be added. Also ACE rails and later more lights.
Lift, tires and rear bumper will be standard.
Will do work across the US.
Operating temperature range will be -50 F to +130F.
Never thought I would order a 4x4 in automatic.

When I got out of the Army for the second time (total of three times), the Veterans Administration had free psychological testing for jobs.
One of their conclusions was that I thought deeper than the average person. This was mainly due to the ability to visualize.
I was brought up in a very abusive environment. One of my escapes from the horrors of childhood was to visualize other things. One can find good in any bad if one tries.
I can look at a topo map and tell you where the best photos and sights will be. Unfortunately do not have the time to do many magazine or book assignments now.
Ansel Adams helped me refine this skill. He could do it better than I.
So not after conquering mother nature (went through that phase a long time ago).
Not looking for the nicest or sexist Jeep.
Just a nice Jeep for getting from point a to point b no matter what the conditions.
For fun and work.
I can also visualize organizations and computer systems the same way.
I can tell you the best way for information to flow through an organization (no matter how big) since I have already visualized all possibilities.
Need to scan in 10,000,000 documents a day and have them automatically indexed. Have designed systems to do that and did great jobs due to visualizing.
Been awhile since I had a Jeep. Looking forward to it.
