So I've had it for almost 2 months... Daaang it dosent seem that long. My Sebring was totaled 4/8/14 got my new ride 4/19/14.

A 2009 Jeep Patriot Limited 4x4 Freedom Drive II (the Trail Rated one!)
Inferno Red Crystal Pearl Coat Black Leather Sunroof Boston Acoustic 9 speaker audio system.
Bought with 72,3xx miles. One owner, spent its life in Fort Wayne, I was affraid to get a Sandy car... The dealership was a dream to work with! The salesman was going over the features, got to the steering wheel audio controls and looked at me and said you already know this, your Sebring had them. I was impressed that I got a long term salesman! They worked hard to find me financing and pulled some strings to ignore the "open" loan on my Sebring because I showed them documentation that Progressive was taking care of it.. And my insurance only went up $30!! 😎

Parked next to mom and dad's Dart.

Front windows tinted... They're much darker looking now.

After they fixed the tore leather on the driver seat... Looks
Flawless.

My mods list is bigger than my budget allows due to increased payments.. (+$100 a month). But I got the cargo net and the envelope net, going to get the cargo cover and a big deflector for it.. And a remote start alarm... Might buy the Mopar EVTS that my dad got for the dart that he never installed... And I'm searching for more aggressive tires... No luck with 215/65/17... I might add that I AVERAGE 21MPG around town with this full time 4WD "brick"! Where I was only averaging 17-19mpg in my Sebring... And it's awesome not having to climb out and fall into my Jeep! And I actually like the CVT, It was odd at first.. And judging speed can be a bitch... I took an on ramp onto I69 during my test drive and was doing 85mph and didn't realize it...

Check discount tire for tire upgrades. Good people to work with, and reasonable pricing.

Congrats.

Slowly most of us are moving on and there are only a few active members that still have their 2G's.

I was behind a Jeep exactly like this one yesterday. Same color, no side mirrors, and the rear view mirror was gone. Needless to say, I gave it a lot of space in front of me...

No luck on tires yet... The Goodyear Wrangler SR-As are at 8/32 yet so I'm good... Chrysler had to replace the Catalytic Converter under the federal emissions warranty... And on my way to CEMA (Chrysler Employee Motorsports Association) car show 6/7/14, my transmission started acting up... The dealer diagnosed it, and agreed to replace it free of charge under their in house warranty... $1200 for the Cat and $4k for the tranny... Must have some good karma... Other than that I'm looking at painting my muffler black so it dosent stick out as much, and getting the Freedom Edition military stars and the "Oscar-Mike" badges to set it apart... I miss the power of my 6G72, but there is almost nothing I can do to the 2.4 World Engine to make more power with out mega money... So I just gotta deal.

Any updates? I know this is a long shot, and this thread's old, but I thought it doesn't hurt to ask.
Also, most of your guys' rides are red, which is my favorite color. I am jelly of y'all (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)
