First Jeep, New to forum and to 4WD!

Hi everyone! Wanted a Jeep since playing on my grandfather's WWII surplus Willy's that sat in his garage for years. Finally got one just two weeks ago, a 2012 Wrangler Sahara Unlimited, Cosmos Blue, Dual top Hard top installed), Auto Temp, Heated seats, 730N Nav unit, 7-Spoke Alum rims (very nice) with 32" Dueller A/T's. We needed a second car and we wanted something that would be great in snow and off-road and that we could put the dog in the back and take off. Looking forward to the snow, a little off-road and going topless in the spring!

This is my first 4WD so it'll be a huge learning curve for me, I'm used to RWD comfort and speed. My other car is an 05 Chrysler 300C that received an AirRaid CAI, Jet Chip stage 2, LT headers and a Corsa cat-back when she was 6 months old. Used to going fast and flat, not bumpy and slow!

Certainly lot afraid of modding, as you can tell. Looking forward to learning from you all and sharing what I can. Happy New Year!

This will be...a little different. But fun, if you do it right.
