Jeep wrangler

Quite a departure from the stable is a new to me 2012 daily driver Jeep 2dr wrangler sport.

I was impressed by the low depreciation and it seems to fit in nicely in SWFL.

I was going to replace my 1995 Toyota Corolla (289,000 miles) original owner with a brz or focus st, but the 2dr Jeep also spoke to me.

This one is all factory correct and I have no desire to change it. I believe it is hyper green.

You might want to check and see if the servicing for the Takata airbag recall has been completed.

Congrats on getting a vehicle that will be hard to lose in a parking lot.

Thanks kach. Yes, it reminds me of the '70s safety colors.
I will check for the airbag service.

Last year we bought a 2005 Wrangler X (TJ, 4.0L, 6 speed). Been a lot of fun...something my fiance has wanted since she was a kid. I am currently putting a clutch in it. Been fun to wrench on.

I cannot believe how expensive they still are used. I am pretty sure they hold their value better than anything else here in northern Colorado.

Have fun with the Jeep! The challenge is sticking to your current desire to keep it stock. The aftermarket options are endless.

Lots of great reading at JK Wrangler Forum

It is a thirsty beast, but it is a 3.6 liter. Love the second seat covers Kach.

I went originally to look at a forest green L6 from '99, but it was so rusty and the aftermarket tires rubbed in hard turns. My wife kept looking at the newer Jeeps on the lot and it really was her that I blame/credit for the purchase.

I believe we all make mistakes but I will not validate your poor choices and/or perversions and subsidize the results your actions.

That and Subarus

I've always fancied owning a Wrangler but can't imagine putting too many highway miles in with one. Saw a newish one at breakfast this am that was a great orange color. Love that green too, but listen to LakeCleElum

Road trip to Bob's house with your new ride!
Will get tongues wagging in his neighborhood!

They are pretty cool vehicles. A girl I dated years ago had one and the Jeep was very fun to drive.

Thirsty is putting it lightly.

Sometimes I feel like I have a 460 ford in mine...
