Happier than ive ever been! I love my yellow beast!

OMGdess I have not been this happy in forever. After wanting a jeep since I was 8 years old (....Mr. Cox did carpool on Thursday mornings - he was my fave - he had an old red Willy's and we got to ride in the back on the metal seats - if you could call them that - as he flew up our bumpy street....we loved the noisy bumpy ride so much we'd yell for him to "speed her up, turn her around, go over the bump, go over the bumps!!" And good old Mr. Cox would do it for us every ride. Anyway, I'm rambling (but isn't following the odd trail central to Jeep Life!?)... So, I swore I'd drive a Jeep when I grew up....here I am, decades later, FINALLY driving my first Jeep. It's my 60th birthday present to myself. I figured if not now, when?

Just got her, 5 days ago. Where am I now? Sitting in the auto shop waiting to hear why she has a shimmy at 65 mph and a weird rattle. No, I didn't hear or feel either if these when I took her for the test drive before purchase..

Am I worried? Well, yes. But, well, ya know that meme going around - it says something like "I work hard so my Jeep can have a good life"!? Yeah, that. My girl, SunWolf (she and I live between the desert and San Diego - Sun Wolves are Coyotes, whom I also appreciate) is a 2005 TJ manual hard top with a bit of lift, some great tires and a sparky spirit.

I guess it won't come as too strange to some of you that I love her like a person - or maybe more than a person. My heart is just so full when I'm with her. We have bonded over our 300+ miles together so far. I'd do anything for her. And I 'feel' that she has my back too. Can't wait to take her off-roading. Love the Jeep family thing too - have already gotten my first few Jeep-waves. 😁

ANYWAYZZZ... Glad to be joining this forum/community/family. I've been a Jeep person for a long time at heart. Now it's for real.
