Breathing is good LB, breathing is good. Glad you're finding solutions to some of the problems around you. And glad to hear TB is back to work. No one wanted Himself, so I guess I'll keep him.

Pac, I got a new vehicle too - I traded in my 95 Sunfire for a 2009 Montana Van. I was finding getting in and out of the Sunfire (my Dad's) was getting more difficult and being in a van is more comfortable and easier to drive. Now we have a camping vehicle!

I actually always wanted a Jeep....maybe my next vehicle!

Anyway, congrats, it's a beauty.

Thanks guys.
This will be my second Jeep. I had a Wrangler a while back. It was OK, but not geared for the highway.
The thing that always steered me away from Cherokees is it seems something is always going wrong with them. My BIL had to have the water pump replaced on his new one last year. Seems they've been this way forever, but, being a Dodge/Mopar guy, they are using the same engine now in Jeeps that they are Durangos, which I was always looking at. And the Jeep is just a much nicer vehicle, plus more dealer incentives. It didn't seem to matter which way I went as far as reliability. Time will tell. And hopefully they have the seat heater thing fixed, as mine has heated seats, too.

And yes, it's black. I think it's the same color my truck was, black with a metal flake.

Oh, RDawg, I baked hot dog buns the other day. I tend to get that white stuff everywhere

Is that a sunroof I see on your new baby? I really thing you should give him a name. Remember the TV show from the 50's whose main character was named "Blackie"? I thing that would be a good name for him. He was a rough around the edges cop/detective.

I didn't know Jeep was using Chrysler engines. It makes sense as they are all the same company. GM now has one "corporate" engine that goes into all their cars.

PS: Inanimate objects don't need to be named.

Andy, some of their vehicles use their own engine, the Hemis I think, but their V6 vehicles use a "Pentatar" engine... I don't know where it's made, but it's more power and better economy.

Addie, I thought Blackie was a cowboy's name... the fifties is a little before my time. Maybe it was a horse's name, lol.

I think it already has a name. It's called a Jeep, just like the little character from Popeye.
