I’m acquiring a friend’s ’97 Wrangler because it maximizes my outdoor + summer + fun experience. Plus it’s the only place I can play cassettes now. I’ve already learned three things in the first week of riding it around:
- With so much bouncing around, it feels like a core stabilizer exercise nearly 80% of the time.
- Acknowledging other Jeep Wrangler owners — all of a sudden I see a lot of them! — is as simple as a wave of the hand from the steering wheel. They wave back the same way.
- Windshield wipers don’t mean diddly when you forget to put the top up when there’s threat of thunder and you have rain on the inside of the windshield.
