Default Jeep wrangler

Coworker had this 2000 Jeep Wrangler. 120k miles with a blown motor. He also had a new jasper crate motor to go with it. He got married and bought his wife a new jeep 4 door. (This was formerly hers). Got it on the cheap and took it to our shop and yanked the motor. We spent 2 different afternoons replacing (2-3 hrs per) and brought her home today. Running good. It's kinda weird driving an automatic trans jeep but the wife will like to drive it too.

Good deal. Sounds like it didn't take too long to replace the motor.

No it was pretty easy. Everything was really accessible. It was dirty as hell too, parked under a tree. I wish I would have taken before and after pics. The inside looks like new. This one won't be going to Arkansas for the season.

I did take the ion alloy wheels off and put the black ones on it today. Don't know why but I just don't like the polished look anymore

So what you meant by jasper crate motor was hybrid? I like the black wheels but not the "powered by Prius" sticker. Just cover it with a Salt Life.

Hate to say it but the auto is probably a good choice. Wife will drive it and like Fatty said, better in traffic or hills. I haven't driven a manual in years and don't miss it.

Sounds good. You can come when gimp comes down for the walking dead tour. We will have to cut our hair like the hipsters do.....long on top and shaved on the sides and the back. We'll vape and drink exotic beers and we can pull gimp behind the jeep in his new chair.
