So you kept bugging him? And he caved? That's awesome! Way to go, EricPersistant lol. I remember you saying how clean it is and you found no signs of rust, etc, which is a pretty big deal on a '03 from MA. Does it have both the hardtop and a soft top? Hardtop is excellent for those winters up there. You'll be glad to have it. Super low mileage. You can do quite a bit just with a 2" budget boost. I know you don't plan on going crazy with offroading, so it looks like this Jeep is a perfect fit for what you're wanting. Don't wait any longer- just go for it, already! Don't wait until spring. You want a Jeep to get you through the snowy months.
