Hi , my name is Paul and I am addicted to Wranglers

It has been 8 months since I had my last Wrangler and this makes number 10.
So my wife made me promise that if we got another one I would not modify, change, paint , not so much as a card trick to it.
So we bought an 18 JKU ...
She is out of town ... i just rewired my power passenger mirror for the relocation, will rewire the drivers tomorrow, leveling kit goes on tomorrow, trailer hitch, wheel spacers til I get new wheels and tires....
I think I need help ... a few pics of my more recent ones... my present day one is my avatar

So, you have earned an eight month chip?


And then you relapsed.

Let me clarify - I see no issues from *my* perspective and the way *my* marriage works... But from a relationship standpoint - if she was a "hard no" - then you may need to slow down a bit if you want to stay married and not sleeping on the couch..

After 29 years of marriage its easier to ask forgiveness than permission... for instance ... I just installed a 500’ zip line , which when I mentioned I might be doing that she said absolutely not ...
Well after seeing it and now she is thinking of getting on it ...
So next weekend will be the interior color kit, alien sunshade, grab handles .... I really need professional intervention.

Ahhh - Wasn't sure if I was speaking to a youngun or not... we are coming up on 21 years this fall...

Same boat here - I have my "ask for forgiveness" moments - but they are usually not big ticket items... we have a standing $50 rule... anything over $50 needs to be at least discussed... I *may* have stretched that a tiny bit in the past...

My old lady just shakes her head. She comes from a family of men that are always working on something. If her dad or brother approves, then I don’t even get a head shake. Usually her dad gives me the “What the hell did ya do now?” bit. There’s nothing I can do that her brother wouldn’t love.

If the Jeep doesn’t cause us to starve, then she is ok with it.

Hello, My name is Paddy, I drive a Jeep and I have an abnormal appetite for hair pie. I can eat a whole pie all by my self. It doesn't matter what kind of pie. I like chocolate cream pie, french silk, bayou goo, french black bottom, elberta peach, and cherry pie. Touche!

I'm planning to get a 2nd Job at Duluth Trading that just opened up this spring.
It should keep me busy for the winter at least, and working weekends means less time to be modding right... thats what I'm telling myself at least (as I'm also wearing head to toe Duluth now)

Damn, TEN Wranglers???? I thought I went through cars...
I have had two wranglers, 2001 TJ and in 2018 bought the 17 JKU (check my garage link).

Hope you have fun! I know I do, even when i'm just changing her oil :-)
