Just picked it up this weekend!

I just got my first Wrangler this weekend and I love it. It's a 2005 Unlimited 6-speed with 14,000 miles and in unbelievable condition. I just finished detailing it and found all the original chalk markings on the frame and stickers on the driveshaft & suspension. This Jeep has never even seen rain. The original owner just kept it at their summer cottage to take to the marina and to town.

I'll probably get bashed in this forum for not being into the big tires and off roading. But I love working on cars and I'll use this forum to do all my repairs and minor upgrades. My other car is a 500 horsepower 1985 Monte Carlo SS that I've build from the ground up. But let me tell you, this Jeep is just as much fun and will be even better when I can do some summer cruising with the top off. I still have to get used to being slow taking off from a stoplight, I'm shifting into second gear at 10-15 mph....I'm used to my faster cars shifting at 40-50 mph into second gear....however, it makes driving more enjoyable and less agressive.

I love the Jeep wave, I waved and got waves back about 20 times this weekend.

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."

Wow. I love your new Jeep and I love your attitude. Only cool people own Jeeps IMO. That means that you are cool.

Welcome to the club. Whether it be a Scrambler or a new Rubicon, we are a Jeep family.

Welcome home.
Our Jeeps are the same color; YAY!!
Jeep; There's only one.
