Hello from Iowa!

Hello all you Jeep Peeps!

I am new to this forum and this is my first post. I am looking forward to getting to know you folks and learning some good stuff along the way.

I started in 2000 with my first Jeep. It was a (new) Grand Cherokee Limited (V8) with the Overland package and the full time 4WD system. Big mistake as it really took its toll on gas mileage. Just when gas was starting towards $3 per gallon my commute to work grew from 5 miles one way to 60 miles one way. The cost of fuel was killing me so in 2006 we traded it off for a new Liberty Limited 4x4. I need 4WD because of all the snow in winter and it just was not possible to miss work.

Well, in 2008 I was forced into retirement because of a disabling illness. So, I still drive the Liberty and have learned to love it!

Everybody stay safe and we will talk again later.

The Turk
