Back into Jeeps after a 15 year hiatus

Hello,
I bought a 2006 Wrangler last week. I have been away from jeeping for 15 years (had one 1990-1996). I told my wife this is my midlife crisis .

I need tons of advice on things.. I am finding myself clueless about where to even start with upgrades etc.

Paul

I just got back in last year after eleven years away from it. If you need help this is the place to get it, wish I had this eleven years ago. I would start with the Quadratec or 4wd catalog. Tons of stuff including ideas and pics. You'll know what you want when you see it. I know I did. Welcome back and enjoy. :wavy:

Nice JEEP My tj came with MUD tires and a 300 watt stereo.Good thing cause i needed the amps to drowned out the tires.Then recently canned the tires it's like a totally different vehicle.Much better with NITTO AT. Enjoy the site!
