When mines down I gotta drive my dads 72' F-250 and if that's out of gas then I am forced to drive my mom's 07' Grand Cherokee.

I've got an XJ, CJ and a Honda CRX... I usually alternate cars but usually the CRX is my DD.

yeah if the weather wasn't so terrible in cheyenne lately i'd ride my honda vt600 motorcycle, it may be a pretty tiny cruiser but hell it costs less than 8 dollars to fill up on empty and get near 65-70 mpg haha. if i'd ride it more i'd have so much more money to blow on the heep

Damn that waggy looks almost showroom fresh! Ill bet your girl and your friend are jealous, always trying to borrow YOUR Jeep.

That chrome makes it really stand out from the "blacked out and tinted everything" crowd. Refreshing to see and damn unique. Can I borrow yours when I am working on mine?

Heh. Thanks.

The girlfriend doesn't enjoy driving my XJ so much since its a "death trap." Now, when we are offroading, she enjoys driving and breaking stuff for me. The roommate loves his XJ, but its rusty and needs a good amount of work. He got it with no sway bar and half the important bolts already broken and rusted. We just got his rear fenders the other day.

I don't let anybody else drive my XJ, unless its for a damn good reason. Haha

my mom used to have a volvo s80 with the twin turbo that car was so dumb for all the stupid luxury features but i loved the turbo, it was quick! that was until a month later all the sensor went bad then she traded it in for the libby she has now. i loved the turbo haha, it even had the semi auto transmission.

the car i had before the xj was a 2000 pontiac bonneville sle and boy that was a fun car but had too many luxury features for my liking and when the trans was going bad and i found out it was gonna cost nearly the value of the car to fix it i decided to sell it and finally get my dream rig, a jeep cherokee =]
