I'm assuming most of these comments are pointed at me.

I'm one of those people that has a hard time keeping a car more than a year. So I have to be careful to not spend too much money. Otherwise I'll lose a lot when I sell it. That's why I bought one that already had $4k invested into it for $4k and had low miles for it's age, 116k. I'll probably keep it 2 years and resell it. Some of the parts will come off and be resold and some will stay on the jeep. And I'll probably be out $2k. $1k a year to use a vehicle is acceptable to me.

As far as power goes, it's still faster than a stock 4.0, and more than fast enough to pull out into traffic. If I want speed I'll go for a ride on my 180 hp Kawasaki zx12r.

This is my wife's DD, it'll be used on pavement 98% of its life with us. And if I need lower gearing I have low range. It's not like it's a rock crawler.
