999 Days Around Africa: The Road Chose Me

My beloved Jeepadoor has died. The brakes are down to steel on steel, and nothing else is getting any better. A little earlier than I had planned, but it’s time to get into some new wheels.

I kept my eye on the online ads (actually it was emailing them to me every day at work) so I knew when a good deal came up. The example below is a 2000 TJ, 110,00kms, 2.5lrt 4-cyl, hard and soft top, 31×10.5 tires, otherwise stock standard. I checked it out, had a mechanic friend check it out and found it was only leaking oild in 5 places – hey that’s pretty good for a Jeep. Some intence negotiation had her in my driveway for $6250.

It’s the most impractical vehicle I have ever spent time in.

It’s also the most fun. I love it.
