The BF's Jeep is a 2002 and has less than 38,000 on it. I guess it is about 3800 a year and not 2000. I had a Liberty for 4 years and put little less than 14,000, which included a road trip to AZ from WI.

I know, it's not normal. I should have my head examined.

Thanks for the welcome! Yes 2-3 times a year. we only put on...maybe 2000 a year per Jeep. Did you know on the 2012 you can only get the oil filters at the dealership? That is going to suck. I'm use to doing my own oil change and can do it normally for $15 bucks. I don't even know what they will charge me for the filter.

Damn that blows chunks.
Hate dealerships

I don't own a weapon...yet. WI just passes its concealed and carry, and I will be getting mine soon. Just have to budget in the money for a gun. But tires and wheels first. All this is REALLY cutting into my shoe fund (I have a small...400 pairs and counting...addiction to shoes)

I like my women to be adventurous, and it's must they have to be outdoorsy so to speak. And sometimes I just test them by having my top off and doors off.

Hoytgirl07 Welcome
I am not a girly girl I do get mine muddy but I knew that when I bought it. The only thing I can say is if you dont want to get hooked playing in the mud dont try it! The last time I went I spent 4 hours just washing the underneath of mine! But I bought it knowing that it would get muddy but also knowing that I love mine so I will take really good care of her and bathe her when Im done playing!!! I have annoyed my hubby about questions about it but I am not completely dumb when it comes to cars. I grew up around nothing but guys and had to be able to drive a manual, change the oil, and change a tire before I could get my license. I love tinkering with mine. Good luck with it!

HAHAHA! Yes he is a guy who has never taken his Jeep off road. Which I guess doesn't surprise me since I'm more handy than he is (owns more tools too). He has two sets of tires for his Jeep (summer ones...beefier and the winter ones...stock).

I tend to tear mine up and if you ever have a question feel free to ask. Welcome to the forum. I have a TJ but I'm sure if you ask about the tires in the JK thread someone will know right off the top of their hear.
