I had knee surgery 2 weeks ago and I will not be able to drive my jeep for 2 months till my leg is strong enough or can bend enough to engage the clutch. I was walking by my jeep yesterday and realized how much I miss driving it. So hopefully.
Love the jeep

Been there with the knee surgery. It'll be better than new when it's all said and done. (I wish I'd have my other knee done too). The clutch issue...ya that sucks. That's why I got an auto this time. I'm not getting any younger. Lol

I feel ya about knee pain brothers, I just wish surgery would fix my knees so I could get a Jeep with a stick, I'm stuck with auto cause my knees are bad and need replacement before I can clutch again, plus the nerve damage is too bad to do anything about.

No cryin' the blues about not being able to drive your Jeep for a couple weeks. I won't bother telling you about my '97 TJ I bought new that was stolen earlier this year. :p

I feel your pain with the survey. I also had knee surgery in October. Just now getting to where I can drive my TJ without too much pain. But I missed it too much to stay away any longer. Had to go muddin last weekend to take care of the itch. Lol. You'll be up and Jeepin soon enough.

No news, it has not yet been found and I doubt it ever will since the odds are very high it was driven into Mexico from here in San Diego. Crooked Mexican cops, Federales, and drug cartels are constantly stealing 4x4 trucks and Jeeps here in the San Diego area to take across the border and use. They even keep the California license plates in place as a badge of honor.

Replaced it with an '04 which will always be known as "my replacement Jeep", likely never just "my Jeep". Kind of like losing my first love right?

Thanks for all the supports.
For you guys with bad knees and before knee replacements check out this procedure ( it may be an alternative) don't settle for a fake knee. Anyhow the procedure is ACI, Articular cartilage implantation. I had my right knee done two yrs ago. They implant your own cartilage cell and they Re grow. I had defects 4 by 6 cm in size. This procedure is not advertised but has been in practice for over 10 yrs. It works. Few OS perform this but more and more are starting. It gives you your knees back with you normal hard cartilage you were born with.
