The keys are melting into my fingers/Should I sell my Jeep?

And it is sooooooooooooo relaxing. My mind is just so relaxed right now.

You know what, some guy is offering to buy my Jeep and if I sell it to him, I'd actually make money selling it to him.

But you know what, as he offered me money, I thought of my daughter's smile as the sun and wind caressed her face. I thought of the possible trails, the memories, the sun on my skin. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy money and I especially enjoy making a profit but for some weird reason, this Jeep transcends money. It is something that contributes to my well being. It contributes to my soul. It is my therapy because it allows me to mingle and play with nature.

Yea, I told him that I don't want to sell it. I'm keeping it. All of my cars in the past I've sold becuase I enjoyed making a profit or just trading it in for something different.

THis Jeep is very different. THough I hear a plethora of complaints about these things, there is NOTHING like it on earth.

THe Jeep is good for the soul. MY Jeep is good for my life. Now I need to watch the Jeep commercial again to complete this post.

Yup, I just did. I'm living my life to the fullest...............

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.

My parents have been using the jeep for the past few days because their truck is broke down and the mustang was snowed in, the driveway. By the third day of them using it my mom came to me and said "I want a jeep, this thing is so great to drive and it holds in the heat even with a soft top." "I thought it would be cold! It's like two degrees outside and im burning up in it!".

There are some pros and cons but the cons I can live with.

We had like 50mph winds last night and I had to drive a hour to St luise and Im lucky the cops didn't pull me over thinking I was drunk. That wind had me all over the road,I had to man handle my steering wheel just to stay in my lane.

On the way home the winds had died down to normal and it was smooth driving all the way home. Really in my eyes that's the only thing bad but how often do winds get that high. That's what they make roll cages for!

Enjoy your vehicle to the fullest not everyone can say they really do.

EDIT: Woot 3,000th post

That almost brought a tear to my eye. I love my Jeep! She's my friend and she's not going anywhere, ever!

Lev,

Congrats on the 3000th post!!!

Yea, I have a 2000 TJ and there's power steering leak even after changing the steering box. It's a little annoying but when I look into her round eyes with the lined grill, I smile and I tell myself: "I can't be mad at you because you're my girl. Just don't tell my wife."

Sometimes its hard to believe your as old as you are Hedonist, your all giddy about your Jeep like an excited 15 year old with his first car. Not knocking you at all, its neat, nice to see you so passionate about your jeep.
When it finally warms up here and I can drive around at night with the roof and doors off i'll probly be the same. Still way too cold here, ive still got the hard top on.

When I was looking for a Jeep to buy I approached several people to ask them if they wanted to sell, but before I even mentioned a price they said NO
