Finally a Jeep

I have been reading Wrangler Forum for several years and have been a member since 2011. I have not posted because though I have deep love of all things Jeep, I lacked the one essential...an actual Jeep! I was driving around in a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 which did not want to die no matter the sincerity of my wishful thinking. I imagined all sorts of horrible things that could befall my truck. I even parked under shaky looking trees during storms. What I could not do was bring myself to buy a new Jeep when I had a truck that was paid off and still running strong. Finally, however, the combination of Maine winters, salted roads, and just plain age rusted out enough of the doors that it would no longer pass inspection.

Of course time marches on and my favorite Wrangler colors were no longer in production, No Steel Blue Metallic, no Mango Tango, no Black Forest Green. I decided on a 2015 Wrangler Unlimited X Edition. The X edition only comes in White, Black, Red, and Yellow so I did not have that much of a choice. White was just too white. Red and Yellow are very cool...too cool for a forty something Dad like me. So I decided on the black. Looks damn sharp too with the body color top and matching fenders. I managed to find one with Tru-Lock Differential and 3.73 Gearing as well. Throw in remote start to help with the Maine winter chill and the 430N radio to confuse the hell out of me.

For those still in the market place: MSRP - $42530 / Paid - $38650.

Yes....those came right off on the first day, Also the X graphic on the rear. I wanted the X package just not the graphics. They did not look good on the black, If I had gotten the white then I might have left them on...it worked with that color. The X package is a great deal compared to adding all of the included options individually. Thanks for the welcome all. By the way, the Jeep "wave" is alive and well in Maine. Feel like I joined a great new club. Getting my new plates soon....
