Today's economy makes me think I should liquidate my little luxury, but I can't even bring myself to put a For Sale sign in the Jeep. I know it needs some work . . .
Ill bite WTF are you talking about? Who left you flat? Why the F would you want to sell when nobodies buying anything?

Spit it out or even the sympathizers will get tired of you and start telling you to pound sand

Anyway....I vote with sell the Jeep personally. We don't know this person and my initial reaction is whiny and entitled vs. feisty and independent.

I truly hope I'm wrong. OP, do what the rest of us did, make connections, buy tools, buy beer for the guy with more tools and knowledge. I can guarantee you it won't happen over night but you'll learn something, you'll have fun and you'll meet a ton of new people....who once they get out from behind their keyboards are actually really nice and incredibly knowledgeable.
FINALLY! A response with great suggestions! Thanks, Mommabear!

This was like an initiation at a Frat House. I can take it.

Welcome to the madness....

I almost bought that jeep....

Looks like your location "Windy City" is chicago, not sure how many chicago guys are here, but maybe sandals or cooter could help you in finding some locals willing to help.

What's wrong with the jeep anyway?

Oh, and I can't think of anything witty or immature right at the moment, so I apologize in advance.

I wasnt in a frat, but the last time I heard about a girl getting initiated at a frat house, it wasnt pretty. But it sounds like you might already know.

Get used to it, Jeeps will rob you blind, especially one with nearly 200K miles.

Sell it and save up for a newer one.

I'm sorry, but Tranny Tom had me rollin at the end of pg 1

Stepping out on a ledge here but judging by the previous posts of the OP and the fact they were all circling around him combined with the fact that he was inquiring on the jeep she I think he is the one to "step out" on her.
