Greetings from the City of Champions.

Although I'm sure things are great in [YOUR LOCATION]. I love it there, don't go changing.

I recently got a 2012 WK2. I've had a GMC Jimmy and a Yukon before, but most recently I had a Saab 9-3. In March a guy crossed the double yellow and hit me near head on. It should have been totaled, even though it was mostly superficial - fender, hood, whole front bumper and so on. At the shop, control modules starting going bad, and I went through a 2 month repair wait, ordering parts myself, negotiating between the body shop and other shops that could actually repair some of the electronics, it never ended. Drove great as always when I got it back, but it was never going to be the same, and not the car I wanted to keep forever that it once was. So I went back to trucks, and new - there's nothing to worry about like a 5 year old car.

With the Saab I got into minor customizing, a forum like this one, and here I see all the familiar "add this" "plastidip that" "HIDs what do I do" discussions. I did all of that on the Saab. But part of my deal with myself was to give up on that, the more you invest of yourself and your time and money, the more you stand to lose when some idiot comes around the bend. I'm already getting attached to my Jeep, but I just don't want to do that personal investment to every corner and crevice again.

Of course, I have already dropped in a K&N filter, Lamin-X on the fogs, and I'm even considering the rear fog Taillight Solutions kit - but that would be the most expensive thing I would do. I love the functionality and safety of it - and uniqueness, let's not forget it's about making it YOUR vehicle - but I'm still contemplating even investing that $300. But I like popping off panels and lights and accomplishing stuff, so I'll probably do it.

I look forward to sharing and being informed as much as I can here. Drive safe out there guys and girls.

Hm, I would take that with a sense of humor, but as you're a moderator I assume because it's somewhat confrontational or liable to be contentious. We are however known as the City of Champions, I intended it much like one might refer to the Big Apple or Windy City. However, point taken either way - we're here to talk about Jeeps.
