Coming home to Jeep!

Thirty years and a family raised now allows me to come full circle back home to Jeep! (My first, a brand new 1978 CJ7 was not the best for raising and toting a family in but...) Recognizing the signs of a mid-life crisis and having the benefit of a somewhat larger wallet, I'm getting a 2012 JK Sport so I'll have room to build it up a bit. Things have changed a lot in the Jeep world since '78 so I'm an old soul newbie and will be relying on your expertise from time to time. I ask in advance, forgiveness for naive and perhaps, often asked questions as I learn the new world and thank you for any kindness that may come my way. We used to say 'It's a Jeep thing'. I know it still is!
