    CA4BBBFE-E867-42C6-9A42-5733A76948FD.jpeg I helped My then 73 year old mother buy this Jeep 5 years ago, and now I have bought it from her but have yet to bring it home. Will post better pictures then. It is a 6 speed 4.0L.

    I have a running trend of buying cars off my Mom. A few years ago I bought her 89 Ford Probe for my sons first car, not as cool as the Jeep, but well maintained.

    Nice Jeep! If it was mine, I'd go with some aftermarket bumpers and maybe a winch... looks great the way it is though.

    That is exactly what I was think I would start with. Any suggestions on bumpers?

    Sharp looking Jeep! Why did your mom end up selling it?

    She had bought if for the German Shepard I got her and the dog has out grown the Jeep and my Mom is having a harder time getting in and out. I am retiring from the military and wanted to buy the Jeep for fun and so my mom could use the money for whatever she wants. She deserves it.

    Oh so true. The budget monster has bit me on every car project I have ever had. The good news is this Jeep will be the newest one I have worked on.
