    :n:I haven’t had a car payment since 2010. Well Monday evening I broke down in a ghetto in Atlanta after dark. Me and my buddy sat for 2.5 hrs in the cold and dark with .45’s firmly clutched waiting on a ride. So today I bought a 2014 2 door Jk with a 6 speed. It only has 7,000 miles on it and has a lift and 305/65-r17’s. It’s got a few things I want to change but I’m mostly gonna leave it as is. The cj6 will continue its rebuild, just at a rate of $500 less a month.:n:

    If you dumped a Ranger to buy a Jeep,
    you're a winner, not a quitter(y)

    Did you have to "convince" any of the locals of this fact?

    This isn’t my first dip in the JK pool. I had a o8 for a while and my wife has a 2015 4 door Willy’s wheeler with a 6 speed. I was hoping to hold out a few more years and score a lightly used gladiator.

    There was a moment the window came down and the safety came off. Me and my buddy were both sporting 1911’s and I felt a little undergunned. We went back last night. There was three of us all with .45’s and a micro Draco in the back. I felt ok then lol

    Congrats on the Jeep. Be nice if it were under better circumstances. So many nice people in ATL and GA in general. Always sad when you have to brush with the 1% that can't elevate beyond feral tendencies.

    I have no patience for inverse street philanthropists.. if put in the same position, I'd prolly be in jail for life. You likely showed more restraint, and good faith, that I prolly would have. Kudos to you. I've had one true encounter with feral humanity and the perp fled. That was enough for me to avoid cities for the rest of my life. Not that the country is devoid of feral human behavior, it just seems much easier to avoid (avoid methy areas and you avoid meth heads lol).

    Congrats! Looks like a very nice unit. JK's are far from perfect but as you already know, very capable on or off road.
