Here here!  If it wasn't for the sweet price I got on my used Jeep, I
would have passed it up on account of the automatic transmission and
A/C.  Real Jeepers prefer manuals w/o A/C -- that's what taking the top
off is for, after all.

If it counts, I'm going to try to convert it to a manual trans as soon
as the auto gives up it's ghost (maybe sooner, if I can swing it).
