    I still remember my 1st Jeep,a 1995 Cherokee.A couple teenage boys stolen it and took it for a joyride.It was trashed inside and out,insurance company totaled it in 2004.I was angry and these two boys were thinking it was funny what they did.

    What a terrible experience! Hope they got some time to think about it in the can. Just got to move forward in life as jeeps are replaceable.

    My wife and I lived in Blythe Georgia in 1989 for 9 months when I was stationed at Ft Gordon in Augusta ... Folks better peaches grow in the ditches there than we can get anywhere else. Deer used to come up in the mornings in our back woods and eat peaches off the tree
