Isn't Owning a Jeep A Love Hate Relationship?

I was just sitting here balancing my empty checkbook, wondering where all my money went? Looking Back through my register I see Jeep Parts 745.00, Jeep Parts 243.00, Jeep Parts 835.00, Gas 55.00, Jeep Parts 83.00,......

But then I walk out into the garage where my beautiful JK sitting just below the garage door about 1/2" And I see how ridiculously awesome it is and how proud I am to own my dream 4x4.

Thats the reason I choose the name I did, cause it sucks the money right out of ya. All you want to do is spend more and more getting this or that. These things should be a Sin to Own

I've dropped over 10K in mods/stereo/tires, etc. in mine and you are right she's beautiful and worth every penny. It's like a Mr. Potato head doll!

God yes- I've spent enough on it to pay for it, and I'm still only a year in on payments

Love it when it's covered in mud and climbing like a champ, but then there are the days when I break stuff (like my t-case linkage last night on the trail- stupid plastic clip!), when I hate it.

Worth (almost) every penny? God, yes! Mark W.
