VEHICLE STORY

I am very fortunate to be the first owner of my 2015 Jeep Wrangler Sport (a.k.a. The Cub). I purchased The Cub at URSE Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Whitehall, WV (near Fairmont, WV) back in late March 2016 with only 294 miles on it. The dealership had taken it in on a trade deal with another dealership. Since then, The Cub has been my daily driver. Being an ol'schooler at heart, I am slowly trying to The Cub resemble more of the earlier Jeeps, like the ones that were running around new when I was a child in the 1980's. My ideas for the direction I want to go in continue to form as I am paying it off; which should be final by the end of 2020. Check back for mods. You may be wondering why I decided to name my Wrangler The Cub. Here are my reasons: 1. I am a native born and raised WV boy, and our state animal is the black bear. 2. As of the Spring of 2015, I began to volunteer with the Boy Scouts of America, and at that time, I was an Assistant Den Leader with the Cub Scouts. 3. I live and work near Morgantown, WV; and we have a local baseball team called the West Virginia Black Bears, and I enjoy going to a game or two each summer. 4. My Jeep is a 2-door Wrangler, and not a 4-door, so it is a smaller Jeep, like a cub is to its parents. In 2019, along with my good friend and his son with their Grand Cherokee (a.k.a. Mongo, yes, as in Blazing Saddles), I took The Cub to the Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival for the first time, with is held annually in Butler Co., PA, home of the American Bantam factory which is created as being the birthplace of the Jeep. Unfortunately, this event has been cancelled due to the pandemic. My goal is to take The Cub to one of the Jeep events along the Atlantic coast, such as the New Jersey Jeep Invasion in Wildwood, NJ or the Ocean City Jeep Week in Ocean City, MD within the next few years.
