That's the exact reason I got my Jeep, and all the people who were *****ing at me about getting a Jeep are the same people telling me to hurry up with my build now. I didn't get my Jeep for practicality or fuel economy, I got it because I want to have fun. Driving all winter with no top and doors sucked, but I have no regrets.

I always had to hold back the smile when that happened, which wasn't really that hard since I was in sheer pain. Haha! Monsoon season in Arizona was pretty good too, the looks I would get during a torrential downpour was always funny.

I gotta say though, I think some of the worst moments was driving down the 91 freeway in the Los Angeles area during the winter around 10 or 11 at night. Seemed like nothing would help keep me somewhat warm, it just sucked all the way home from Redondo Beach to La Mirada.

If I found this website before I bought my JK, I probably wouldn't have bought one. I'm on my second JK (first one totaled by Sandy) and I couldn't be happier. No oil leaks, gas spurting out of the tank, or ticking or sand in my engine block. Hopefully this one lasts as long as my first Jeep, a 92 YJ, bought new and given away after I bought my 2010.

I have a 2010 JK and couldn't be happier, my first jeep was a YJ. Currently I have 46k on this one with no issues. I am a little bit fanatical with maintenance,but am that way with any vehicle. So many things you can do in and to a Jeep. Enjoy!
