Re: How old were you when you got into Jeeps?
Well, when I started high school (age 14) I started to notice them. I always liked trucks, but seemed to look past Jeeps for some reason. I then started to like them, but never really had any plans to purchase one. When I was 16 I got my first vehicle. It was a Suzuki Samurai. For a year I was perfectly content with that, well, I still am really. But anyway, as I started to bring in more and more money, I wanted another vehicle. I always thought I wanted a fullsize Bronco. However, I loved the idea of a convertible 4x4. Then my liking for Jeeps kind of took over. I decided I wanted one. I looked for about a year for one I could afford. Finally I found one. I got a rather rusty 86 CJ7 a month ago (age 18). This is going to be a fun, fun project. I plan on spending the winter building it up and restoring it into a lifted daily driver/off-roader/ show truck. I am then going to buy another Samurai, do the SPOA on that, put 31's on, and also use that for a daily driver. The current Samurai I have will then turn into a competition rock crawler. More money than I have? Yes. But oh well. Debt has to start somewhere, eh? [img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]
