Intro From The Land of 10,000 Lakes

So…

My daily driver crapped out on me and I went looking for a replacement.

I’m sick and tired of driving the old man station wagon. I wanted something sporty with some options out-of-the-catalog to make it me. There were no catalogs to pimp out my wagon.

I wanted something either front wheel drive or 4 wheel drive to handle winter driving. My buddy had a couple of Jeeps but they never really appealed to me. Everyone I talked to told me to stay away from the Jeep.

In all my car shopping the Jeep just made sense to me. I’m probably boring all you hard core off road rock crawler guys to death, sorry. This boring old man made the decision that the Jeep had the most potential to go from daily driver to get through the snow and be a kewl little hot rod when the weather wasn’t as severe.

Everything people told me that was BAD with the Jeep you guys have been addressing here on the board. I have been and will continue to lurk these pages we call the WranglerFourm.com and share the little knowledge I have when I can.

So…

I ordered my 2013 2 door Wrangler Sport on 3-12-2013. The dealer said it will take around 6 weeks.

This Monday morning the Jeep web site has my Jeep in the Paint shop.

It is kinds sorta nice to have an update site to keep us informed. Last time I ordered a vehicle I didn't know a thing till the dealer unloaded it.
