Cool Greetings from Wisconsin!

Good day all!
Fixing things is my nature.
I have been doing all my own auto repair since 1996.

I enjoy driving.
I am the owner of my own interior painting business.
I was born July 4th 1978. < I would give an age but that will change every time someone reads this >

My mother in law just purchased a 2013 4 door Wrangler unlimited.
She gave me her 2001 2 door Wrangler. 60th anniversary edition 4.0L 85000 miles, hard/soft top, fog lights, 30 inch tires, and a wad of repairs.
I was super excited to get this project under way.
So far I have replaced the:
Radiator,
Shocks,
water pump,
thermostat,
plugs,
front brakes, <pads and rotors only>
Transmission filter and fluid,
plug rail,
heater core,
heater door actuator,
Swapped the vacuum harness for the evap to purge to intake hoses, test valve included, all came as one part from dealer only.
cleared the check engine codes,
put in a set of waterproof floor mats.

I love driving this beast in the snow! The other day I mowed down a snowbank as tall as the hood, no lift kits, It almost seems as if nothing can stop this machine. Maybe a broken part or two.
This is my first Jeep.
Thank you for welcoming me to your forum.
If I know the answer to anything, I will try to beat you seasoned professionals to it
Respect to all,
Chadd G.

Welcome! Sounds like you've acquired a very nice rig and it's great when you can do the work yourself.

Obsession is right..... I think I'm gonna need a 12 step Jeepers program...!


that list up top is just a starter! I have done soooooo much more, and I haven't had any time/money to spare for tires, upgrades, mods, lift kits.... etc. etc.

here's an after and a before.
Now its hard top season!

1 Tip. If you bedline with rustoleum Spraycans, if left in the sun, the job will fade. Use some <orange bottle> silicone tire shine to darken it up a bit and to shine it up a bit. It looks awesome!
