Broke my wifes fsjenity

So today I had to bring my oldest son and two of his friends to a summer camp today and I had to take my wifes car so the only way for her to get home was drive the J-10 home seeing that it wasn't going to be till way later after she got off work that I'd be home. It's the first time she ever drove it in the two years I've had it and she drove it like a champ. She said " It made me fell powerful and scared at the same time." Yeah, it does that.

Thats so cool glad she liked it. I'm hoping my wife gets bit by the jeep bug and I can get her in a grand waggy. She already likes my waggy.

That's why you find one that already has her own jeep, no teaching involved. But you do have to be smart enough to hang on to her

A few years ago my wife's blazer was off getting painted. So she had to use the J20 since it was the only auto trans we had here. Well I went to pick up her truck and my paint guy was at walmart the day she drove the J20, he said good thing those kids were straped down looked like they would have gone through the roof when she hit the speed bump.

Just the opposite for me, I had to get the new BJ'S fuel Skid Plate/ I told her the gas tank was ready to fall out, she has not driven it since. but hey, I got the new gas tank skid plate install. I have not admitted to her yet, but i too was scared to drive her before the new skid plate was installed...

all the girls that drive my j-10 absolutely love it. "powerful but scared" is a pretty accurate description i think

Probably the best thing of all is that I had already been chomping at the bit to do some improvements in the 4k-5k range. That night when we were talking about it she said from driving it she now sees that it won't be a waste of money. Her quote was this, " If you spend that to buy another truck or use it to fix this one it is still going to get spent and since you already own this one..." In my opinion theres only one way to take that
