Hey, we'll the pics look to be okay! The way circumstances are going, it would seem you have no choice but to buy it! There will definitely be frustrations along the way, but this is a once in a lifetime project. Don't rush it, and do your best to prepare as much as you can before it arrives.
Can't remember if you said, but do you have storage for it when you get it?

I have a carport. I'm going to put it there for now. It isn't completely closed in, but will have to do. I'll put it on the side of the carport that's up against the house and pulled it in. Maybe I can get a cover for it? Guy has one on Craigslist for $40 new in box. Would that be a good idea?
Save your money for a better one that's more water resistant . Remember, you get what you pay for!
And Congratulations on getting the Jeep. Dude, I had tears in my eyes last night when I read about the the wall mart/McDonald's thing, and then when your were 8 or 9.
When anyone around you says "who's the man" there is no need for you to look around, JUST LOOK IN THE MIRROR!!
