Lmao.

I guess you can take peace in spreading the joy that is YJ ownership to another...

Youll get my Jeep from my cold, dead hands.

You will regret that one day big time. Probably sooner though, as soon as the money is gone.

Sorry you had to sell it. I have been there with other Jeeps I have owned. I had CJ5's and a CJ7. I really miss the 7. It was a nice Jeep but things happen. Hope you can get another one soon.

Me? Wife and kids plus a 45 mile commute. She could not drive a stick either. Had a friend that offered me more than I thought it was worth so I took it. Compared to what people ask for 7's now it was not enough money. LOL

I know you're getting beat-up pretty bad in here about it, but I'm really glad you sold it for a great reason. The proper education trumps everything in my book, even a Jeep. When you get out and get a real good job, you'll get a really nice Jeep and be able to afford more mods b/c of what you had to sacrifice to get there. I still suggest that you hang around on the forum and continue to educate yourself about Jeeps so you'll next one will exactly what you have in mind and what you want, don't be a stranger. Good luck man and keep it real.

I like how you guys are treating it like its some sort of human being and it will hold a grudge forever and you need to seek its forgiveness. I mean come on i would never sell my jeep because i don't want my jeep commiting suicide becaue i just GAVE IT AWAY AS IT WAS JUST SOME TRASH AND IT DOESN'T HAVE FEELINGS!! "oh how i love you oh 1990 jeep of mine" you guys need to just chill!! Im sure his jeep after some thearopy will get over it. Don't worry i bet his jeep will be taking care of just fine by some 400lbs chick who will paint it pink. OH MAN I FEEL SO BAD FOR HIS JEEP! I WOULD NEVER DO THAT TO MY JEEP!!! WHAT WAS HE THINKING!!!!!!???????????? anyway sorry you had to sell it! DAMN IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This.

I've owned several Jeeps previously and could never afford to do all I wanted to do to make it more, bigger, better, etc. I got this YJ after working for years to get a good job with some disposable income. Now I can afford to build it the way I want and do what I please with it.

You'll get another one again when the opportunity is right and at least it went to someone who will enjoy it as much as you did.

When I was reading you sold it, I was thinking for what reason would you sell something you liked so much. That is one of the 3-4 answers I can respect you for. Hope all goes well with school and you can buy yourself a graduation present, meaning jeep.

100% correct! The better of the two gifts your parents gave you was the foundation of love and smarts to sell your jeep for continued education. I'd be very proud of you if you were my child!

Congrats to you sir.

Share you fortunate luck with others. Volunteer for a local orginazation to show your parents thanks. It is OK to get hooked up, so long as you pay it along. I came from a town where the students drove better cars than the teachers, because they were "entitled" to. It isn't a very attractive way to be.

Not saying thats you, or you havent earned that jeep through family help, just my thoughts. I remember a 16 year old girl in Algebra crying b/c her parents got her a USED mercedes for her 16th birthday. She had wanted a new one. Our teacher offered a trade of her 10 year old Toyota Camry, since she was so sad. Pathetic, huh? Again, not that that is how you are. Just a reminder to stay grounded, ya know?

I 100% agree with selling it to buy a YJ and get debt down!

And good luck with that whole postgraduate job deal.

Those types of people make me sick, i second the swap to the YJ but thats just me. Whatever you do i wish you luck your parents really care about you and thats what matters more than any jeep/car.

The college thing is an important step that you are taking for you and your family. Having the detrmination to take care of your family and sacrafice your other best friend (Jeep) is great. It will pay back tenfold give a few years. Stay in touch.
