What I really want is to get an LJ and build it, so I may do that in the future. I just don't want my Jeep to get messed up at an urban college in a big city.

Well I got it boosted after leaving the internal light on from 6:45AM to 3PM.
The battery is a newish (couple month old) Optima YellowTop which probably would have been fine if it hadn't been -29C (-20F) with windchill. The interior light was still on when I came out just not enough juice to get her going. Started up fine with a boost and made sure to go buy booster cables as I have been putting it off until today.

I bought my jeep because my car was getting messed up at school

If you have a hard top you should be ok... Also, if you gotta parallel park, a jeep is perfect, because not only are you short length wise, but other *******s who hit you will be damaging their car. Some D-Bag in a Kia SUV reversed right into my bumper while I was standing on the other side of the street, after he saw me walk over to check my jeep he was like my bad, but all I could think of was how bad his Kia was damaged.

Finally paid off...

Drove 1000 miles to Minnesota, and only turned the Jeep off twice. Merry CHRISTMAS.

I did a tuneup on my 97 4.0. New plugs, wires, rotor, cap and air filter. The jeep runs way better than before. All I noticed before was some stuttering when I stomp on it. Seems like a different vehicle and only cost me 88 bucks

Well, it appears my 98 doesn't. I think if it hadn't been so cold I probably wouldn't have noticed during startup
