    Originally from PA with most of my life in Charlotte, NC. Have driven through all 48 continental states over the past 20 years. What a wonderful site! On my 5th Jeep, the first three were all Wranglers but now in retirement, I don't enjoy all the shifting and soft tops don't do much for all the heat in AZ. This is my 2nd Liberty and I love how it handles and still performs well in the mountains and off-road. I enjoy traveling and taking pictures.

    Current is KK, Liberty Sport, V6, 4WD, Auto. AT 73 and a bad back, I switched to automatic a few years ago. Too much shifting, especially in the Phoenix area with all these traffic lights. Before the back problems, I had three Jeeps, all Wranglers, that I would switch back and forth just for variety. The one I loved the most was the plain-Jane 1994 soft top.

    Sometimes the best is a bare bones 4x4
    I have said for years they should build some that are just a plain jane type of 4x4
    Then the buyer could build or add as to what they need or want

    One of my Bobtail Broncos , well first one I bought was a 6 cylinder, 3 speed manual brakes/steering etc not even a radio
    had the most fun with it and drove it everywhere
    even with 12-15s on it wasn't hard to turn, had enough low end and did what it was to do
