I am the 4th owner.

The first owner had her for 8 years & 10 months. He registered her in Arlington, TX on July 1998. He kept her until May 2007 and had her serviced religiously for 80,000 miles.

The second owner had her from May 2007 until January 2010. He was local to me but I have no idea how well he kept her.

The third owner had her from January 2010 until February 2011. He claims to have never had her offroad but the dirt & mud in places where they don't belong tell a different story. He used her for an ashtray and generally filthied her up. He also claimed to have put only about 1000 miles on her.

I have her now and plan on getting her back where she needs to be & keeping her there.
