I finally have a Wrangler!!
Hey everyone! A little story on how long I've wanted a Wrangler:
I have wanted a Wrangler since I was in high school. I drove an 1989 Cherokee Pioneer that was handed down to me by my dad in high school. I had friends that had Wranglers and I was always bugging them to drive theirs. :p In college I drove an Acura Integra. I think I got that car because I couldn't quite afford a Wrangler yet. Landed a sweet job bartending in college making some pretty good dough so I started to look to trade the Integra for a Wrangler! But then, my girlfriend at the time (now my wife) found out we were expecting, so that idea went out the door. This was in 2003, where there were no 4-door ones. So I traded in the Integra for a 2000 Grand Cherokee. Had that baby for 7 years and recently traded that in for an 07 GMC Acadia because we needed a large car for our 2 kids and 2 big dogs. I have been driving that for the past few months.
My wife was driving a VW Jetta and she was complaining how she wanted a bigger car - mainly because of her new job. So I told her that she could start driving the Acadia if we could trade in her car for a Wrangler.
Here's what I came home with a couple of days ago: :D
