Old Noob

I joined the forum a few weeks ago, and have been lurking and learning in that time. I finally found my Jeep, and got her today.

My wife and I have been all over SoCal looking for the right Jeep. We worked the Craigslist ads, Facebook Marketplace, even CarGurus, and found some nice ones that could have worked. But none of them was quite right. We were headed home at the end of another day's fruitless search, got stuck in some hellacious traffic, so I decided to take the "long" way home. We came around a corner, and lo and behold, was the Jeep I had been looking for.

She was just sitting on the side of the road with a For Sale sign on the windshield. A 2006 Flame Red LJ with a black hardtop. She just spoke to me.

I got ahold of the owner, we did the old song and dance, and she's now parked at my house. Not planning on too many mods, for now. It'll take some time, but eventually I'll figure out what to do with her. It's a one owner, really original Jeep, so I don't want to mess it up.
