Greetings from Montana

Recently moved to Montana from Kansas City area...prior to that, Houston. I've always 'wanted' a Jeep, but couldn't justify it in Houston. When I moved to KC for a year, I kind of quit thinking about it for awhile. As my move to Montana got closer and closer, I decided it was the perfect time to get one (JKU). My wife recommended I wait until the move was done...good call on that, except I didn't realize it was going to take me 2 months to figure out what I wanted and then find one.

I still have no idea what I want. The number of options are overwhelming and the desire to keep it a functional, comfortable DD all while having the most capable off road vehicle possible and keeping it within a certain budget…has proven maddening. I’ve literally gone from saying F it, and buying a decked out Hard Rock to buying a base model Sport and putting a few mods onto it myself. Not to mention that the pricing at various dealers is ALL over the place. I’ve found Rubicons from 34k to 49k and everything in between. And then the argument over gearing, transmission, lifts, and tire size…

I do know that I want a Firecracker red color and black wheels (Backcountry wheel/tire combo). That’s a start, right?
