    I know that the Jeep forum has one of these threads...figured I would start one and see where it goes...If it should be in a different area, could a moderator please move it. (I would really be honored it it were "stickied")
    Thanks...and enjoy the read!

    If you go to a gas station for every other conceivable reason - car wash, beer, energy drinks, etc. - and sometimes even park at a gas pump - but don't buy any gas.
