Hi from NW suburbs of Chicago


Purchased a 2015 JK last fall. Long story, but here's the short version.

On vacation last summer, my family rented a 2018 JKU for two weeks on Cape Cod. When it was over, my wife stated she wanted one to replace her old Toyota Rav4. So through her business, she leased a new 2019 JLU. My son, who just turned 16, needed a car, and he'd rather drive my 2011 Ford Escape than my wife's Toyota Rav4. So we sold the Rav4, and my son took the Ford Escape. That left me without a ride - until I found the used 2015 Wrangler JK north of Milwaukee for sale.

Now we're a two-Wrangler family!

I've put on "Quadratec's QRC Side Armor with Step" already, and I've rigged a hoist system in the garage to lift the factory hard top. Now I just have to decide on which soft top I want to purchase so I can get that mounted for the three to four months of nice warm weather we get here in northern Illinois.

Glad to be part of the family, finally!
