    But new to this forum.
    Frankly, Jeeps are the only American iron that I've liked; we had two Cherokees; the second was used to build a camp (and hauled so many concrete bags the rear springs needed a leaf), and then I taught my daughter to drive it. It became part of her persona in High School and College.
    In late '03, I got a Wrangler Rubicon TJ, manual. It was my DD for several years, until I got a little ricer for around town.
    The Jeep was mostly used for going to camp, or camping. It has seen its share of offroad miles, lots of old railroad grades among them.
    It's currently at 115,000, and the tin worm took the front fenders and windshield frame, (both replaced) but it still looks pretty presentable. Mechanically, it's been remarkably trouble free. But it's a Farmall with a radio and heater! :)

    I know there are older jeepers than me. But they are becoming fewer and fewer every day.

    I realized this when I ask if there were any CJ-8 owners around and heard crickets.

    I'm feeling pretty codgerish; the Jeep is 17, and I'm 71.
