Question Former Jeeper - Back for a Favor: Rent me yours?

Ahhh, posting on a Jeep forum. It has been too long. Here's my deal: I used to cruise these boards all the time 10-12 years ago. My wife & I had a '98 TJ that we loved, and thought we'd own forever. Well...then a daily commute to Boston comes along, followed by little rugrats to put in the back, and suddenly you're driving something "practical" promising yourself that you will definitely get another Jeep someday. That promise WILL be just hasn't yet.

In the meantime, my lovely wife is turning the big 4-0 next month and the one gift I absolutely must find a way to provide is a stickshifted wrangler for a week to remember her "Jeep Chick" days (and look forward to their return).

After scouring the rental car providers, there appears to be no way to rent a manual transmission jeep in New England. So it occurred to me to reach out to my old community, remembering the helpfulness and camaraderie of this crew.

The need: A manual transmission wrangler from the morning of June 6th until at least the 11th. Ideally it will be somewhat late model, in case we need to throw child seats in the back in a pinch, and either soft-topped, bimini or topless, so she can re-live the full affect. As long as it isn't lifted beyond belief, it can be garaged any time it is at my house. No rock crawling or mudding planned....this is strictly a pleasure cruise and the jeep will be babied. A swap can certainly be provided if its your daily driver, though our collateral won't be nearly as cool. We are in the Newburyport, MA area.

If anyone knows of any way for me to fulfill this gift and/or would consider at least talking with me about your own, please reach out. Thanks, Jeep Peeps! I missed you guys.

p.s. If this post would be better somewhere other than the Newbs thread, please let me know that as well.

Welcome back! I wish I could lend you a hand but we are many miles too far. I hope you are able to fulfill your wish for her present! That would be an awesome gift! Good luck! And I hope you are able to get your own jeep soon!

Thanks for all the comments, gang. Good to be back, even as a temporary non-owner. And Beastmaster, thanks for the advice. I think I will repost in those spots.
