Randy bought a new Jeep!
We love to take friends out for trail rides. There is something special about getting people out to see the real Florida and our diverse wildlife. Gators are commonplace here and now it looks like we will always be guaranteed to see some, at least on this Jeep. Introducing the newest Jeep to our Family.... drum roll please,,,, 2010 Wrangler JKU It is a one owner with a stellar car fax report. All service done at the same dealer on time with service and recalls. Thank you Walter Hall for taking care of her so diligently. She has gone to a good home and going to be loved on. First things first, new tires, 31” Milestar Patagonia Mud terrains. Some grab bars, and LED headlights and fog lights. A new cover seal for the Dana 44 in the back. Randi will pick out a stubby bumper for the front and a winch. Some sliders for the side and eventually a rear bumper. Down the road a slight lift and e lockers, that all depends on where she wants to take it. We are looking to build a mild trail ride vehicle for stock trail rides. Why a JKU? Her main reason was 4 doors and 3 rear seat belts. Another big pulse is the automatic transmission. I may be 6 3 but she is down in the low 5 foot something range. On the 07 she had to move the seat all the way up and still had issues pushing the clutch all the way in. The dash also is so low that you rub your shin while shifting. That also puts the airbag very close. The new Jeep is for her and she loves it so far. Easy to drive and handles smooth. Now to address the elephant in the room... or because we are in Florida, the GATOR in the room. Walter, the original owner, is a BIG gator fan. His new Gladiator is getting a Florida Gator overhaul as I write this. Congrats on the new Jeep Walt. For anyone who knows me, I grew up in Tallahassee. FSU has always been my team a choice as is the same for my Mom who got her PHD from there. Sisters, brothers and friends. My summers in middle school were spent there at what I called snake school. We studied reptiles and birds as well as gathered specimens from the panhandle area. Randi showed me a photo and said “ I want to go see this Jeep” one look and my replay was No, No , No NO! The hood was a work of art, the doors a statement, the tire cover a bold proclamation of domination, and to top it off the seat were covered in blue and orange... like the University of Florida blue and orange. There were little chrome gator logos fastened about. Swamp bound... don’t touch my Jeep she said. No you can’t get a FSU tag for the front, it’s mine. The Jeep is nice, you will love it or hate it, me I just will love with it. That is unless some super gator fan wants to trade hoods. The air brush art is outstanding. Too good to ever cover. So like it or not, here comes the Gator Jeep.
