    Hello fellow Jeepers. Jeepites? I just bought my first Jeep this week. It is a 2004 Grand Cherokee Laredo V8. I bought it just for our Minnesota winters. I have a smaller sporty car for every day drive. I had only driven a Jeep once before many, many years ago, and I remember it driving and riding very rough. I had no idea Jeep had come so far. This is a great vehicle! Nice ride, plenty of power(a plus with me) and looks sharp too. even though it was just going to be for winter I find myself wanting to drive it all the time now.
    I always read the forums for my vehicles, so I was glad to find this one. I will be reading this every day. Thanks for being here!
    Almost forgot to say, I'm 65 year old male, feel 20 years younger, and still like to have fun!

    Welcome to the forum Jack. Nice Jeep.

    And the day I stop having fun, at any age. Is the day I lay down in my 6' foot hole. We all have a little kid in us. Nurture it, and have fun. Life is way to short. Drive your Jeep every day if you want. Have fun with it.
