I'm a serious Newb, but I've loved the Wranglers from afar for many years and finally was able to get my very first Jeep one week ago! I'm more in love than I thought I'd be. It's awesome to see all that can be done to these rigs, but I think I'll keep mine fairly simple. Looking to get new tires and def some new wheels. Possibly a little lift, maybe get a tinted window kit. I love seeing the passion a lot of you all have for your Wranglers. I wanna drive it all the time.
Just wanted to stop by and introduce myself and say whazzzzup to my new fellow jeepers out there.
Hi, Seelye, I got an '09 JK Unlimited X. It's pretty spartan compared to others I've seen, but it had what I wanted. AC, auto, 4 doors, ABS. I'm putting in a remote start and converting the manual locks to power (that's a convenience I kinda want back, lol), but I am very happy with it being my first Wrangler. Def won't be my last. I've wanted one so bad for so long, and so far it's lived up to my expectations, there is no way I'm going back to anything else.
I'm researching tires at the moment. I don't need anything too crazy, bcz I'm not an off-roader, but I want something with a little more "meat" on there than the stock ones. I keep seeing the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac. Any thoughts on those?
One of my first days with the rig, I was driving down a road and a fellow Jeeper passed by and waved at me. I thought that was so cool! I waved back of course. I haven't had much luck with a couple other Jeepers I've waved to. lol. oh well. Here is my attempt at some pics:
When I saw it, I knew I had to have it. It not only was the vehicle I've always wanted, but I really wanted blue. So, it must have been meant to be!
I'm always on the look out for other Jeepers now. It's funny. I used to see them and have that look of longing. Now, I see them and I'm like "hey, hi, look at me, I got one tooooo!" lol
nice ride,,i like the goodyear wranglers also,was thinking of going with the same ones.
and i hear ya,,i think im jeep from here on out also!!
I've checked out the Nitto grapplers too (16" and 17") with new wheels. The total price between the two packages is literally $5!! The tires are pretty cool-sort of what I had in mind. I dont want to rush into anything but I likey ! Lol
Welcome to the Forum! Great looking rig, too. I have a 2-door 09 in the same Deep Water Blue Pearl and I get lots of compliments on the color. One guy at a gas station asked me if it was a custom color!
