Going beep beep in my Jeep!

Hi!
I just got my first Jeep friday, a 2005 Wrangler (4L engine).
Unfortunately it's an automatic, but it was so much fun to test drive that I got it anyways. I got it at a Honda dealer and traded in my fuddy duddy 1998 accord for it.
It's bright green with a black soft top.
It had just under 58k miles.

It had a lift kit (?) in it but the Honda dealer took it out before giving it to me, said it was a cheap kit and not installed very well. It also had a snow plow on the front but that was 2 owners ago.

I've got to get manuals, etc. and figure out what I want to do first.

oh.. and save up money to do those things. haha



*actually the first thing I want to do is add some giant googly eyes.

Does an automatic overheat a lot where this is necessary?


I'll be picking up a haynes manual soon for it.

If u plan on running 33" or bigger tires I would look in to it a lot cheaper than a new transmission...

Not quite sure about that yet. I do a bunch of highway driving in it (well so far anyways).

First thing I really want to do is take out the back seat.
And change out the soft top.

After reading up on what people have done to their Jeeps, I'm contemplating painting the inside a vibrant purple to contrast the green and black.
