Hi everyone

I’ve always lusted after a Jeep but never owned one until now

I have a ‘97 with a good deal of rust and previous hard use. 

I’m very much looking forward to meeting the group and doing some trails! My wife is also looking forward and I have a 13 yr old daughter and 11 yr old son I think will get involved

Hi Joe,

Welcome!!!   It will be nice to have some more kids around the club.  We have a 14 year old daughter and a 12 year son.   They love to come with us on our off roading adventures.  I look forward to meeting you and your family.

I’m hoping to not put a lot of dough into it.  Got it needing a clutch so I replaced that and plan on freshening up cosmetically a bit.
