JD from Norfolk Va.
I look forward to learning as much as possible of the jeep owner experience.
This is our first wrangler and can't wait to get off the pavement.
I finally got my wife her dream vehicle, a wrangler sport. We're in our mid 50's and have reached the need to be young again. What better way than to get off the highway in a jeep.
My inquiries will seem ridiculous but we are novices to this new mode of having fun.
When in doubt ask the gurus, right?
This is the jeep we just got.
99 wrangler sport
2" emu lift, 1" body lift
too many miles already 130k
terrible mpg on the first tank (need to improve that)
looking forward to hitting the sandy beaches of the N.C. Outerbanks
Hey, it's great to have a place to go when in doubt or want to improve and be prepared for the experiences that lay ahead of us.

You're never too old to enjoy your Jeep. When I lived in Michigan, I belonged to a local club that had young guys like me (I was 16 when I got my first Wrangler) to much older guys in their 50s and 60s that brought a lot of knowledge to the table. I probably learned more from my limited time with these two guys in their 60s than I learned by tens of thousands of miles of driving my Jeep on my own.
Welcome to the Forum!! Lots of good people and knowledge on this site. IDK what your mileage is/was but Jeeps generally don't get much better than 16-18 around town....IF YOU ARE LUCKY....and you baby it. A lot of people only get about 14mpg. ASK questions in the TJ section or search the threads.....there are a lot of variables to how your Jeep will/ can perform fuel use wise. Enjoy the JEEP!!
