This was actually a late Christmas surprise from my parents. They upgraded to a Rubicon to haul their Great Danes around and the little TJ wasn't being driven any more. They said they didn't want it sitting around, so they hauled it from North Carolina to Ohio. I had been planning on getting a Wrangler in the next year as I wanted something safer and more reliable in the snow, and then this pulled up in my driveway.

Bumpers, step rails, and lights are the only modifications. Not planning any major mods any time soon - no $$$ for it, and I don't plan on doing much off roading. I live in the city, so she's going to be a pavement princess, most likely :) Would love to put half doors on, but I don't think those are super practical for Ohio weather and the 4 nice days a year we have. But we'll see - love reading the build threads on here, so I'm bound to get some ideas!

Just wait for the itch to hit you, especially with the folks on here from the Midwest doing fun trips ;)

Congrats on the TJ and welcome!

Seriously! My parents rock, and they're the reason I'm into Wranglers in the first place. Reasonable people probably would have sold it, but I'm so glad they decided to keep it in the family.
Kudos to them, I wish my parents had given me a Wrangler when I was younger. Hell... I wish I had known how much fun Wranglers were when I was younger!
