Finally made it.

hello all, noob to Jeeps here, (after waiting 40 years for one ~grin~.) starting off with a 2000 Wrangler sport, soft top, all seems to work great, no rust, no body dings, etc. Seems like it's been too pampered to me. (a steal at 6 grand so I was told?.) Stock at the moment except for the 32" inch tires.......but that is gonna change fast. now all I got to do is learn the do's and dont's...

Howdy and welcome to WF.

Do enjoy it and take it off road as often as you can.
Don't forget to wave at other jeeps.

There are so mant things available for the venerable TJ that you could shop for YEARS and not find everything!! You will come to love that little guy, and treat him right and he will never let you down. Let me tell you, that here on WF , its a great group of peole from all walks of life, and there is a lot more "happy" in the air here than in other forums, usually because of the great work done by the moderators here. Once again, congrats on the new purchase!!

Welcome aboard Mr. The Old One. I heard about your new purchase and I think another forum member is pretty jealous.

Sounds like you got a great deal!! You definitely found the right place to learn about your Jeep. There are some very slick people on here and I think there is not one on here that is scared to give you there honest opinion, which I like!! Welcome and enjoy your new toy!!

Where'd you find such a deal? Is this going to be your daily driver? How many miles? I'm just starting my search for one.

It was a personal deal, I purchased it from my employer's son. (more of a friend then a boss). His son bought an 07, and wanted to get out from under two payments due to a new family member. So I got it for the remainder of what was owed only. from what I have gathered, this is not a common price range for this jeep.... ..... and it will be my toy, not my daily driver.

For now. But just wait until it's a sunny day and you drive it to work with the top down. You'll be hooked. It will be your daily driver soon enough. You just wait and see.....

And then you'll start dreaming about lifts and tires and skids and bumpers and LEDs and, and, and....
