Congrats! I bought a Wrangler new back in '98 and drove it for nearly a decade... snow, sand, water, rock... nothing could stop that beast! I loved it, and I know you'll love yours!

I priced one just like the one you pictured, but went with the TH because I wanted Mango Tango Pearl. Good luck and have fun! I like the 2 door better. The 4 door is overkill, but people love them!

I absolutely love the 2 door and this color, only thing i am not quite sure about is it being a soft top and living in Michigan. but i have heard the newer soft tops seem to be better with keeping the heat in. only time will tell though. once they get the Cherokee in line in a year or so i will probably buy another one as a second vehicle. loved everything about it, except the issues.

Congrats! Loved my Wrangler that I traded on the Trailhawk.

Would you believe I traded it because it was so unreliable.... in the 5 year / 120,000km I owned it (and thoroughly enjoyed it I should add) it had the transfer case seals fail (a week old), 3 clock springs, all 4 ball joints, tie rod, drag link, track bar, both front unis, 2 x hand brake levers, 5 years of unfixed water leaks (taken to Dealer every few months), broken transfer case control cable, popping out of first gear, pre-rusted from the factory (the whole undercarriage - diffs, chassis etc), hinges rusting and paint peeling off, rattling tailgate, and of course the lovely death wobbles!!

But as I said, loved it for what it was - pretty much unstoppable!

Sorry to see you go, but you gotta do what's right for you...just cause your leaving doesn't mean you can't stop by and say "hey".

Good luck to you and congrats on your new ride...
