The Jeep Experience Newsletter, Issue #014
April 08, 2009
I don't know about you but I'm having a bad case of Spring "Jeep" Fever.
I want another Jeep so bad I can taste it. And if you've ever "tasted" a Jeep you know what I mean.
Seriously, I have been placing bids on EBAY for several older YJ's. I plan to keep my beloved '87 Comanche MJ, but now have the bug for a good used Wrangler YJ or TJ if I can find one at the right price.
As I've said before I am very particular about my Jeeps and only look for the best deals for the most Jeep. Also, if you've been keeping up with these newsletters you may remember me mentioning that I was looking for a good used Cherokee XJ.
Well, again being stubbornly picky I have not been able to find a 1996 to 1999 Cherokee 4x4 with the 5-speed manual transmission...and the rare one's that I do find have been sorely abused beyond help.
I don't want to spend a lot of cash on an old Jeep and it must be no more than 100 miles from my home if I find one. In other words, if you know of a great deal on a Jeep in let's say Oregon, that's a 'fer piece for me to travel from North Central Texas.
Any suggestions on why I should or should not consider an older Jeep Wrangler YJ, TJ or the Cherokee XJ (5-spd) please let me know by Contacting Me Here. Your input is always appreciated.
Also, I am looking for individual "Jeep Lovers" who have an old Jeep Station Wagon or an old Jeepster that they might want to share with the world by sending me a story and photo about these great old Jeeps. (Not too familiar with these old models then check out the Willys/Jeep Wagon page and/or the Jeepster page.)
All submissions are considered for inclusion within my Jeep Website.
If you or someone you know wants to have your Wagon or Jeepster displayed here you can either write your story and include a link to your photo(s) on my Contact Me Now page...or use the Create Your Own Jeep Page.
Be sure to at least include your first name and your location because you will be given full credit for your submission(s)...and you WILL be notified when your story and photo are up live on the site.
I often get feedback here about readers who are Jeep Lovers and they enjoy seeing others display their Jeeps and tell a bit about them on the website.
And it doesn't matter what condition your Jeep is in as long as we can see it. Jeepers have great imaginations!
So thanks again for all of the support and sharing which makes this Jeep community something special.
Until next time keep all 4 wheels on the ground and stay upright...it's more fun that way...and have a Blessed and Happy Easter!
