Lets get this over with...

Hi, my name's Jeff and I'm a jeepoholic.
I've had this affliction from a young age, it probably started with my Tonka jeeps.

My first grown up jeep was a '59 Willy's truck. After lots of work and a long trip I ended up selling it, I had no where to store or work on it.
Years later a CJ7 found me, I cared for it, drove it and finally took it apart for a build that never happened.
There have been a few other CJ's since then, and my heart still belongs to them. I have a '74 CJ5 project that needs a new tub. Or at least a less rusty tub.

But the Wranglers, wow have they changed jeeping. Fuel injection, computers, A/C, carpeting, power windows, heated seats(!?) coil springs. At least the new ones have round headlights.

Currently I have my eye on a '13 JK Rubicon with manual trans.
As soon as the dealership says it's ready (it's being brought in from out of state) I'll go look it over and make the deal if I'm happy with it.

I'll get some pics posted up if it comes home.

Thanks for the welcome.

Blue Baby Sound, I have got to tell you, your wife's Willy's has THE LOOK.
I think the stance and tire:wheel well ratio is perfect. That jeep convinced me to keep the factory Rubicon wheels on mine. If I decide to lift it I hope to get the same look as your wife's.

And here's mine, I brought it home yesterday and finally got a little desert time in it this afternoon:
