About “Short Bus”

As I live rural & the winters can be a little harsh I had been wanting a 4 X 4 for quite a few years. I had been looking into a Jeep TJ Sport when the Short Bus appeared on one of the local lots. It was lust at first sight & love at first test drive. I traded in my 2000 GMC Sonoma & never looked back.
