    Default howdy yall

    I found yall from a youtube vid

    My jeep adventure starts with a 94 Xj named Eugene.
    I have known this rig since it was new and used to park across the street from my dad's place.
    I gal named Anna Banana ( I am not kidding ) bought it new
    Latter she gave it to her friend Kat who I mow for...when Anna passed, she left Kat her 2012 ford!
    I asked what she was gonna do with her jeep?
    She said do you want it? I said yea you bet!!!! (She got 6 months of mowing for free.)
    Neither one took it offroad and kat didn't take it out of the city limits. ( She didn't know it was a 5 speed. )

    I live in Spokane, one of the best places in the world. ( Trails all over the place. )
    I have had a few toyota 4X4s an 89, 88, 87 and a 84 all pick ups.
    This is my first jeep and after a year and a half I love it.
    A transgression that could get me kicked out of my GM \ Toyota family
    I can see why there is such a following for theses rigs

    What did you use on the paint. I would have thought that level of faded would have been unrecoverable.
