Just Joined the wrangler club

I just strayed from Ford . But I think Ill be ok, Ford just didnt offer anything more family oriented for the wife and I. Ive had two ford rangers and one F150. I just ditched the 150 for a 2006 wrangler. 6speed manual 4.0l. Its sitting on, what I think are the DC1s which are popular among the ranger-forums with 32's. Its a little bumpy, but smaller and more useful then my truck, at least when it comes to the backseat and a commuter. my truck was just too big and I hardly used it as a truck.

Let me know what you think, it has 26,000 miles. the only mods are the bigger tires, the wheels, and a security system with lo jack.

NAH they are dependable vehicles, keep them maintained and they go forever the motors and driveline are pretty much bullet proof for how most "normal" people drive them. Gas Mileage could be better but it is a box with wheels, not very aerodynamic. The reason you will go broke is there is always one more new modification to make, or one more catalog you just looked at and now need something else!! You will like it and if you take care of it it will do right by you. Welcome to the club

It's gonna turn some heads. Congrats and I think you made a great choice. I love cars but this Jeep has captured something no other vehicle has done before.
