Default Ain't no Jeep: Purple Haze

Damn thing came drivin around the corner and my buddy says "That damn thing look purple!" I figured I'd better name it Purple Haze before someone starts calling it Barney. The oxidation kinda gives it a purple haze over what is some hideous shade of blue.

I wanted a daily driver but wanted something fun. Going to keep it stock for now.

That sounds like a "Mid Life Crisis"

Maybe, at 52, I hope it's midlife. That would mean I still have a long way to go. Right?

It may be more like a fuel cost crisis. I spent $300 in fuel last weekend. Diesel is 40 cents more per gallon than regular gas.

I hope so. They're extremely underpowered though. 4 cyl 2.25 liter with a whopping 75hp.
