    However it will get me to the spots to shoot.
    Now I can get rid of the truck and drive something a little easier on the pocketbook.

    They're a lot easier to work on than a Dodge 2500 diesel and cheaper parts.....provided I don't follow @tirediron with the mods. lol

    Cool new toy, but avoiding accessory and upgrade fever may be pretty difficult. My boss bought his Rubicon new, and I swear he has spent more on aftermarket goodies than he paid for the Jeep! :eek-73:

    I used to offroad out west. Nothing like climbing a mountain without a road. I hate mud and that's all there is here. No need for a bunch of mall crawler gear so I should do okay.
    Most of the things I want to do I can do in my own shop or make from scratch. Like an external cage with an integral ladder and platform at some point so Jr and I can stand on top of the Jeep to see over all of the tall reeds in our own blind.

    That friggn thing gave me such a huge headach!

    But mine is a patriot at least with the 6 speed auto and not the CVT.

    Congrats!

    I am trying very hard NOT to get one. I currently tow my 2010 Camry on a car dolly behind my motorhome, and think it would be easier to flat tow a Jeep. I keep telling myself "wait a couple more years".

    Nice! I had an '05 TJ for a few years. Yours looks pretty much stock except for the chrome bits and the wheels. Having a hard top is great. It will make a great birding rig especially with a platform.

    Thank you.

    What is a WCM?

    Edit. Found out what a WCM is. No worries as this thing is so lack lustre in features I'm lucky it came with a steering wheel. lol

    Wireless Control Module

    This is an older posting, but the problem still persists with all Jeep/ Chrysler vehicles.

    Engine Will not Start Due to Wireless Control Module Fault : Jeep Wrangler Electrical and Lights
