Starts with J….
My next prized possession…my Jeep. This was a “on the fly” purchase. If a car can be a on the fly purchase. It was the last 2011 vehicle on the lot. The 12s were all over, and the dealership was willing to make a deal to get it out of there.
I’ve always wanted a Jeep; but life got in the way…like kids. It’s not a very practical car. Not the best on comfort on road trips. Stripped down; no frills. I traded in an SUV for it. That SUV was loaded; heated leather seats; remote start; backup camera; everything. Then I traded it for my Jeep. My kids thought I was crazy. But I finally had my car I’d always wanted.
We were living in IL at the time we bought it, and not many places to go “off-roading.” In fact, the only off roading it saw was when there was a snow pile at work, and I drove up on it!
Once we moved to Arizona though…she has been through quite a bit of off roading now…she’s got some damage underneath her, and she has “Arizona Pinstripes.” Scratches from the brush when you are off roading in a wash…lots of scratches…but that’s okay…let’s people know I’ve taken her places.
I got a lift kit for Christmas. Yep, I asked for that. Now, I can go to even more places…can’t wait.
