    Soft top! Rescue Metallic Green. Not bad meaning bad, but bad meaning good!

    Signed off on her Saturday. Had 23 miles now has 170. I have been a Jeep owner since day one. Always full size and dreaming of cool size. Not very practical or economical. Know what? I could care less. I am in love with it. It is the first and last brandy new vehicle I have ever owned. I know there are other Jeep lovers out there so chime in your thoughts.

    Major drawback is that I am now in the system. Making payments...

    Congrats! I'm definitely a fan of the new Wrangler. Maybe a vehicle picture thread should be started...

    Lets see. I currently own...1949 Willys Overlander wagon, a 1973 FSJ, a 2001 TJ, and my favorite, that isn't a jeep at all, 1969 Toyota LandCruiser FJ-40.

    Grats on the new Wrangler. I've been considering the 4 door Rubi for my wife. It's either that or the new Toyota FJ.

    Congrats! Don't know why, but I've always wanted a soft top Jeep. Isn't practical right now with our family, but Aubrey promised once the kids are all grown we're getting one :D Enjoy it!

    Wife keeps looking at New Unlimited Rubicon. We have 82 scrambler (bone stock needs help), 88 Grand Wagoneer (wasting away but keeps going), 93 Wrangler (some lift and mods), and 2000 TJ (went way overboard, not practical for road any more - scares people :) ).

    The 2001 has about 10" of lift, with 1 ton axles swapped in, 38" tires, lockers, cage, winch etc.

    The FJ40 will get close to the same treatment eventually...

    Thanks gang!!! Not sure what direction this Jeep will go. It is very basic at this point. I think tires first. Slightly better stereo. Then engine and body parts. For sure baby steps. I am still trying to get over the fact that I own a new vehicle.

    I am slowly figuring out how basic my Wrangler is. Which is fine. Definitely affordable. Thank god there was not a Rubicon on the lot. Then I would really be in debt.

    Oh, I see now that you are from Jackson. I was in the area this summer, so I know there are some great 4X4 trails in the area; perfect for a Jeep. So, if the snows not too deep, have fun! :mrgreen:

    It is a shame there is no Landrover in your collection ;)
