Re: OT..Ever lived in your jeep?!?
Last summer my buddy and I quit our jobs and travelled 19,000 miles around the country in a YJ. Massachusetts to Key West, to Texas, Utah, Cali, Oregon, Washington, Canada, Then back across the north back to Massachusetts.
We lived in the Jeep for 4-1/2 months. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Best time I've ever had in my life. If you guys ever get a chance to go see the country in a Jeep, I highly recommend it.
We shaved in the mirrors many times. We took the back seat out, in order to have room for a full size cooler, a small grill, coleman stove, tools, tent, sleeping bags, etc. It's amazing how much stuff you can fit in a Jeep if you organize it well. We had a cell phone and a CB, and a CD player, and went from campground to campground.
No better way to live. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] One of our big jokes was "Hey, have you seen the (phone / map / etc)?" "Yeah, man, it's in the house (meaning, jeep)" We'd meet girls in the campground, and we'd say "Hey, how do you like our house?" and point to the Jeep.
