WEST CHESTER, PA - There you are in front of the computer, a holiday warrior ready to do the gift battle. Maybe some festive music is playing softly in the background. Possibly a half-empty eggnog at your side.
You’ve been tasked with buying a nice gift for that special someone, friend, or family member who owns something Jeep-ish. Or Jeep-e. You’re not quite sure on that. But you know you need to buy something and other than a Jeep catalog, which now looks like mangled evidence from a crime scene, you were not given much direction.
So the parts scroll by on the screen like bland white noise. Some top this, a bumper that. You don’t even know what this other thing is supposed to be.
