Man i would hate if my parents were like that. Every car i owned i said i wasnt going to do anything with it. That usually lasts about a month haha. I think everytime my dad comes home im working on it doing something. I picture it like this. My jeep cost 3200. Thats about 20k cheaper than a new car so that means i can spend that much haha. If only my parents could see what i have back at my apartment. Brand new wheels and im ordering tires when i get back, maybe a winch mount an winch haha.

So do your parents not care what you do to your Jeep or what your spend on it? I wish my parents would let me do whatever the heck I wanted to it... But I quite honestly have about 50 thousand plus invested into that thing from where it stand now, all the way about to buying brand spanking new in July of 2004

I think the MSRP sticker was 32K lol. Then gas, maintenance, repairs, modifications, (audio was a big one. Dude, I spent more on audio then you did for your Jeep... talk about sad) etc add wayyyy up!

Eh its my jeep and can do what i want with it. Usually im replacing parts that are bad or going out. Like my tires leak air about 1psi a day, are dry rotted, and are just plain crappy. So ill replace the tires with bigger muds. Same thing with my suspension. Its my only transportation so i need to keep it up in good condition. Its kind of a dont ask dont tell situation.

That sucks about the tires... If you are gonna use your Jeep to commute to school I would reconsider M/T's. Gonna wear fast, be loud, and suck gas.

This is how it works on my end. Buy something for Jeep, don't say anything. Parents find out. I get yelled at for spending money. That about how it is.

Hahaha that is pretty funny. I think I need some 35's with my one inch lift.

I love drifting around in the rain and cornering like bat outta hell.

That would scare the crap out of most anyone, jeep + lift = ROLL OVER RATE INCREASE!

Oh My 0-60 is like 10 seconds

5,000 in gas since I have had it
3,500 and change for audio in that aspect
2,000 for both sets of tires
5,800 at the last count (estimate) for maintance such as fluids, brakes, etc
1,500 for all the crazy stuff I do to it or add.

That is a round about of all that I can think of off the top of my head. And obviously I did not pay for Jeep. But I've sure spent thousands and thousands on her!
