First Jeep

I'm just getting settled into my first jeep. I bought it while I was home on leave from my 2nd Iraq tour last December. Of course, when I buy something, I tend to buy for the "I probably don't need that...but just in case" option so went with the Rubicon. I have only been driving it for about 5 months since I am home, but of course I am having a little buyers remorse with the new engine. Haven't driven it yet, but I hear great things. All in all, I am really happy with the Jeep and have already started trying to figure out what to do with it next. A lift is out for the time being because my daughter has enough trouble getting in it now... I think I need a roof rack to store gear and put more lights on (can a man have too many lights?) and anything to make it go faster. Thoughts or ideas are welcome....More to follow and happy new year!

Hello, I have a relatively new Wrangler too.

Just to let you know, I've done weekend trips with 4 adults and 2 children in a 2-door Jeep, and fit all of our bags in the back or over the wheel areas. I too am thinking of a roof rack, but only for longer trips through the desert that require lots of water etc. For normal camping or weekend trips with a small family, you might be surprised with what you can fit in a 2-door Jeep. Just stack all your things like bricks in the back, and use more smaller bags and not fewer larger bags.

I also drive off-road in soft sand/small rocks a lot, and I find I have no reason to change the original wheels/tires/suspension. Maybe in your landscape it's different, I don't know it.

I 100% needed more lights for off-road driving at night. I have a spotlight now, but before that I had to climb a dune and turn the car around to search for a good path after dark, it wasn't easy. At least one light you can turn is extremely useful, but any extra lights will help.
