When life gives you hail...get a Jeep!

It all started on March 17, on my way to the office in downtown Fort Worth. At 7:15am, the pea-sized hail started. Ten minutes later, after golf ball and egg-sized hail, the 2004 Tahoe, with 204k miles was totalled. While it wasn't what I had planned, it provided the perfect oppportunity to buy a Jeep!

I've wanted one for three years now, and while I didn't have as much time to research and review what I really wanted, there wasn't going to be any better of an excuse for purchase. I ended up with a 2016 Billet Silver Sahara, fullly loaded, because it was the right price (purchased March 31) with the amenities I wanted. Most important, the wife and all three kiddos (8, 5 and 15 mos) approved!

The Harken hoist goes up tomorrow night so we can go full-topless this weekend. For now, it's stock, but mods will come soon.
