And i took it for a little test drive and tried everything out and it worked good. So now i'm a official jeep owner.
Congrats on the new jeep, you're gonna love it! Nice looking rig too! I remember the thread you started a while ago when you were thinking about buying one, glad you went with the TJ, good choice!!
I was in the same situation with my dad. He loaned me the money up front and i've just been paying it off in small payments that work out for me seeing as im a sophomore in college and money is tight right now. It works out really well. You learn to appreciate what you have much more when you actually pay for your own stuff, especially a vehicle.
Glad to hear you did your homework on it too, good job getting the receipts and finding out who did the work. Thats what i did with mine, it had a new engine installed and i actually went to the guy who put in the new engine and asked him a few questions about it. Doing your homework on a vehicle before you buy it saves you a lot of cash and headaches later on down the road.
Anyway congrats again man on owning a jeep! Just be careful, its an addiction
