Jeep Has Finally Returned Home

Got my jeep back last night. Finally got a transport service to get it to me at a reasonable price. It is definitely not in the best condition. One headlight is out, a fog light is out, Trinity won't turn on, cigarette lighter power isn't working (probably a blown fuse), check engine light is on, tires have low pressure etc. Thankfully these are all minor things in which can be fixed easily and with little to no money. The plan is to take my jeep to Chicago this Thursday, and hopefully to Dan's (DCSpecial) shop this weekend in order to restore the beast to health.

I am very happy to have it back, but certainly don't have the same passion for it as I used to. I am going to list it for sale once it's back in great condition so if anyone out there is looking for an extremely unique and gorgeous jeep, this is the one.

Hope all is well guys and gals.

Great to hear you got it back. For those of us who don't know your story, where did you get it back from and why is it in such poor condition?

Got it back from VA and why it's in such poor condition, I am not sure.

It sucks to hear that it was poorly treated where it was and that you want to sell it. I'll try and make it out by Dan if your Jeep makes it there.

I'm BAAAAAAAACK....

Gla you got it back bud. Sorry it was such a process for you.

I'm slowly getting back into the mix. Been a long road

Having a twin turbo kit doing 9 sec gets old doesnt it. lol
I guess now that you have a new Mustang, the passion of the Jeep is leaving.
Hope all gets fixed, nice ride.

John, glad you finally have your jeep back in your hands.

I know having non-stop issues gets old and sucks away the love you once had for your jeep.

Hopefully after Dan works his magic the love will come back.
