that's too funny. my first Jeep, a '94 Cherokee SE 2dr 2.5L 5sp, was purchased with the help of my trade; an '88 Dakota 3.9L AT 4x4 Long Bed. it was a great truck and had 280K on it when i bought the Jeep. i had it for over half of those miles and the only thing i HAD to do to it was replace the fuel pump at 225K. got really decent MPG for a 4x4 truck. kinda wished i still had it for an old beater truck to do my 'dirty work' at home......

Mine was a local publishing delivery truck. Low miles only 65K but LOTS of hours probably at idle and loads of stop and go. It still looked good from the outside. Heck, I got 4 more years out of it and it was cheap to buy. The way they use salt in the winter around here you'd think that it was Bonneville!

It's OK if the dealer takes your nuts in trade, because now you can get new ones: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f7/why-you-might-want-your-wrangler-wear-cup-507928/

OMG-I have seen these. It was a little embarrassing when my 6 year old asked me what was on the hitch of the truck in front of us

I think it's hysterical that everybody thinks theirs is SOO different than everyone else's. I've been an OR nurse for 15 years. Believe me-they're basically all the same!! we really don't need bumpernutz to advertise!

Thanks Gramps! I hadn't seen this before. After I read the rules, I can see why they're in place. It's a shame the things that occurred that made these rules necessary.

I enjoy this website very much

Very nice~ are those Rubicon wheels on your Patriot? My husband is dying to swap out his wheels. (I love the look, but am practical at heart, so I'll probably keep mine).
