    I used to have a 97 wrangler sport on 33s and a 4 inch lift. I loved that thing....until it literally fell apart.

    In 6 months i broke the radiator, the rear end, the transmission, the AC, the alternator, and the starter :rofl:

    so I sold it. and bought an 06 scion tc


    buyers fucking remorse, should I sell this thing and get back into another jeep? my daily commute is < 5 miles, but I regularly drive cross-state to knoxville.

    :hsd:

    cliffs: I was a dumbass to think a good gas mileage car was better than a jeep or truck :o

    i've taken mine out a few times. unfortunately the issue that i have right now is i just don't have anywhere to wash it in my apartment complex. i can't really think of any wash places in the area either.

    definitely go back to a jeep. I'm sure there are some many great trails down there to fuck around on.
