1st Jeep in MI

I've been lurking since last Friday and finally registered today.

Just bought a 97 Wrangler on Saturday and gotta say I love it! (Top was down when I picked "George" up!)

My husband has been doing some fix ups on the new baby and a tune up, so I hopefully won't encounter any immediate issues and he plans to do a few mods down the road.

I've read up on the wave and proper parking when other jeeps are in the lot.

Thanks for a great forum where newbies can get great info from the jeep lifers!

I was wondering who that was lurking in the shadows. Welcome to the forum. I'm sure you and George will have a great life together.

I have 3 boys. The oldest is trying to lay claim to George already. (Doesn't start driver's training for 1.5 years and won't be needing his own car for 2.5, lol)

Fitting 3 kiddos while the husband is at work will be no problem, and we're figuring for the other times; leaving the oldest home would make him lonely so of course we must leave 2 and then it really just wouldn't be fair to only bring one child along, so maybe we'll just have to leave all 3 @ home .... good thing I have a minivan too.

It is a bit tricky getting the kids in without climbing all over everything inside!

The dreaded minivan -.-

If they like climbing all over things, lets hope you get all three of them wranglers one day. =P

Why do they have to be wranglers. There are always there earlier cj's to choose from. Working on them is half the fun.

Welcome. Always good to have another member in MI. I think that makes 4 of us now.

Thanks Lev, loved your framed jeep too. Now we just need some RAIN so I can get MUD on George!

Sadly, that is my front yard...

This is what you do ^_^

1. Get out the water hose
2. Get the kids to spray down the front yard
3. Spin out till you get mud

If #2 dont work do it in the back yard.
