Hello my name is Uncle Shooter (John) and I am now the proud owner of an 08 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited in leaf green color. Only had 44k miles on it and has a Warn front bumper and power winch. Has a catback FlowMaster exhaust system installed.
It is replacing my beloved 94 Bronco which is fine but suffering the ravages of Michigan winters. I have the Bronco all fixed up the way I liked it. I'm going to fix up the Rubi and I'm hoping to find some suggestions and guidance from this forum.
Got a Rugged Ridge Black Roll Bar Fire Extinguisher Holder for it with the proper type extinguisher. So far it appears to be smarter than me and still is half installed. ;-)
Have ordered a full interior 5 piece hand grab handles and a "A" pillar switch pod with 4 switches. Ordered the Piaa windshield brackets and the Piaa xtreme light kit for it. Have been using Piaa lights since my rally car days of 25 years ago. Got a set on the Bronco they are just great.
It has a Nav system in it but lacks a thing called a "U-Connect" which gives the system the ability hand free bluetooth and use an IPod or USB thumb drive directly. Seen the U-Connect on E-Bay for $300+. The local Jeep dealership wants $780 to install one the labor was more than the unit. Probably going to go with a JVC nav unit that includes everything with a backup cam.
Going to try and find a local club and get someone to help me get started with some "introduction" to off roading.
I have a ton of questions but I'm to cruise the forum first to see what wisdom I can uncover.
