So here's the back story. In early March 2014 We were looking for a new car for the wife and she had always wanted a BMW M-Sport coupe. We found one out-of-state and put in an offer with the BMW dealership which was accepted. That's when the salesman turned into a complete douschenozzle (very long story) and we ended up pulling out of the deal.

2 weeks later we were in Denver on vacation and visiting some friends. We took a day trip down to Colorado Springs to check out Garden of the Gods. Before hitting the national park in our rented Nissan Versa we decided to grad some lunch. Well we happened to drive past a Jeep dealership on the way to lunch and saw a nice Cosmos Blue JKU parked right out front. We whipped a u-turn and decided to take her for a test drive.

After a 15 minute drive we told the sales guy that it was nice but we'd have to think about it, and that we were wanting to grab lunch and see Garden of the Gods. He said, "Well your experience at Garden of the Gods would be WAY BETTER if you had a Jeep! Why don't you take this one, come back in a few hours, and if you aren't totally in love with it then we will part ways with just a handshake.

Smart salesman.

We wrote a check 3 hours later.

This picture was taken while we were at Garden of the Gods on our "test drive."




And 2 weeks later she showed up at out house!

Well that is the ultimate compliment. Please tell her I said thank you.

Love the BMW as well, my next car when we get sick of the Acura will be a M3. Great color too.

I'll be following your build closely man, looking forward to see what's next.

I love my UPS guy! Set of 5 Rugged Ridge XHD wheels, 17x9, satin black with the machined silver lip. Got the rock rings Saturday.

I promised my wife that if I was gonna spend $6000 on the Jeep that I would wait until we actually NEED new tires. It looks like I have about 5K miles left before they become dangerous to drive on. So 315 Duratracs are gonna be on March!!
