Default My first Jeep

Hey, I'm Ricky. I'm currently a student at the University of Toledo. I'm originally from Cleveland. I've been a VW enthusiast for some time now. I bought my 95 Wrangler for a winter ride but it's ending up being my main vehicle. I'm looking forward to meeting some Jeepers and learning more about Jeeps. I want to come out to some get-togethers as well!

When I bought it...



How it looks so far...



Currently saving up for a lift and new tires.

What the Jeep somewhat replaced...

Thanks man! Found it back in Cleveland at Tim Lally Chevy since I know one of the salesmen there. It was in Cali for about 75% of it's life according to the carfax. Overpayed a bit for it, but I wasn't pissed since the I looked at a 97 before I found this one and it had rust all over.
