Just an old man's toy. I've wanted a Jeep forever but either couldn't afford one or if I could, didn't think I could justify it. This one won't see much off-roading, mainly will just bop around with no top or doors when the weather is nice. And give the grandkids the occasional ride. It was quite a dog when I got it and spent a lot of time in my farm shop but I think I finally have it decently roadworthy.

I’m right there with you as a new grandpa. Two years ago my DW and I bought our first Wrangler - a 2013 JK Sahara 6-speed. It was so nice that I could not see taking it into the woods and getting scratches. So, we started another search for a TJ and found a very nice 2003 Wrangler X 5-speed that had a 1.5” spacer lift, after market front bumper with winch and 31” mud tires. This was perfect for poking around at the farm with the grandkids.
