Finally got my dream car! A JEEP!

Hi all! Just purchased a 2003 Jeep Wrangler on friday. I have been waiting 20 years to finally get my jeep and it has happend. But I am VERY new to this. My jeep is better than what I was wanting, but its taking some getting use to. Been hauling my kids around in the dreaded mini van for 10 years, and its very strange to go back to a stick shift vehicle (I LOVE IT!!!) Today was my first experience of warming up the engine. Something I havent really done in 13 years. Is this normal that it takes a bit for them to warm up? Excited to learn TONS about my new baby! But will be seeking lots of advice from the pros.
