Hello! (kinda)

I've been a part of the forum for a few years now, but haven't posted many threads because i traded mine 3 years ago for a Mazda3...love that car! but...i have always missed my cherokee...well here's a quick story of my new one:

Well, I got a 1997 Jeep Cherokee with 3" Rough Country lift. Some of you may know that I have been looking for one, but I didn't buy it. Here's the story in a nutshell.
I went to go look at it, and agreed upon a price with the owner last Saturday. Sunday I emailed saying I would be by to drop off a deposit. No reply. I thought that was odd, because anytime someone says they're bringing me a couple hundred dollars, I'd be quick to reply. The days went on and still no reply. I figured they had sold it, and was kinda bummed, but pressed on n kept looking. Well, last night I came home, went into the garage to get a beer and saw this:

(see attached image)
I thought to myself: "HOLY ****! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?" My wife got it for me as a Christmas present. How badass is that? She is in no way into cars, but did the coolest car gift ever. I love her so much.

More pics later after i've scraped all the stickers and freshened it up a little.
