1st Jeep- Know almost nothing, looking to learn

Hi all, Im about to buy an '02 TJ (I think thats right). Ive been thinking about getting a jeep for about a year now and finally decided to, love the idea of a low maintenance drop top. I really dont know much about them (had a mustang before). Looking to do some light modification (rims,tires, lights, brush guard, skid plates, that type of stuff). Im not planning on doing TOO extreme of stuff just some light to moderate off-roading to start.

Welcome, you'll enjoy the ride. It seems that a lot of us "Former Mustang Owners" now have Jeeps.

A bit of advice, do your homework before buying anything. Don't just listen to one opinion and take it as gospel.
There is as much junk and bad advice out there as there are quality products and people who know what they're doing.

Find a local Jeep club and join it. It will be one of the best things you can do.

But I find the jeep to be as much fun as the old stang also got to say Welcome to the forum. I hope to keep the jeep and never have that old feeling that I should have kept it.

Welcome to the addiction. The best way is to buy the Jeep and keep the other vehicle too. Here is my other ride.
