Torrential rain? Floods? My JLUR LIVES for such conditions , then again being in SoCal such blessings can be rare so I enjoy them when I can. Congrats on the new family addition and HECK YEAH worth pulling the kids from school (odds are they'll learn more useful stuff from the Jeep than the educational institution... nothing wrong with education mind you... but still).Picked it up this afternoon... why not get the kids out of school early to pick it up?! It's not every day you buy a Jeep. Downside is we have been having torrential rain and flood warnings all day. Made pictures difficult. 9 1/2 week wait was worth it!
