After the paper work was finished on my LJ and had the keys. There was a mud pit behind the dealership. Didn't even get it on a real road once it was mine to get it dirty. Haven't looked back.
Bought a 92 YJ a few years ago, had a hard top and half doors. Took the doors off when the PO handed over the keys, then went and did some light wheelin on the way home. Got home and took the hard top off and got rid of it. Now here I am with a broken Jeep that will soon be on the trails again.
1991 YJ, bone stock. Starting all over again with another YJ...
Bought my 03 TJ from my uncle. She was a street queen. Never had the intention to get into it as far as I am, or want to be down the road. I put on a RC lift kit. I actually met of my good friends through my Jeep. Went up back where he lives and did some ol' washed out fire trails. Dragged the stock hitch, learned many a new things. Tossed my friend the keys and said, "have at it."
Now I have the Jeep itch, and many plans for. She's back to being a street queen while I am slowly buying the parts it install my 8.8 I have lying around. Have a pile of parts as it is in my room right now.
