Heeeey folks

I'm not a Wrangler owner yet...but I'm in the process of buying one. I work for the owner a Chrysler dealership and they found me one yesterday...which I'm now driving until they get the title transferred to them and get it all checked out in service.

It's a 2002 Wrangler Sport 4.0 5 spd...black with the tan soft top/interior. Pics will follow once I officially own it, but I don't wanna jump the gun yet.

Anywho...my name's Josh and I'm 23...never owned a Jeep before, but I can tell I'm gonna love it. Not new to the auto forum scene though...been involved in a few Dodge Dakota forums over the years since that's what I currently own.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!

I am still awaiting my Jeep...it's back at the dealership having a few small issues taken care of and awaiting the title to be transferred over from the folks they bought it from. My buddy says the paperwork should be ready to sign on Thursday.

This is the first stick shift I've driven on the road aside from a short 10 min drive or two in another 4 cylinder Wrangler and a Suzuki Samurai. So far my stall count is only 1...I think I'm doing okay. LOL. As soon as I own it, I'm gonna modify that damn throttle return spring and make it a little tighter. My truck requires about 3 times the amount of force on the accelerator as the Jeep...so I keep burning the crap out of the clutch. For you folks experienced with a stick...what's the best way to start moving while on a hill without stalling it/rolling backward and burning the clutch?

I'm used to driving John Deere 6420's at work...so I'm not new to driving manual vehicles entirely, but with those big diesels, I just slowly let the clutch out until it holds the tractor from rolling backward and then let off the brake and give it gas while releasing the clutch. Doesn't even phase those engines. Same concept with the Jeeps...just gotta be a lil more gentle on the clutch or is there a trick I haven't learned yet? lol

Oh yeah...and I totally see what my buddy was saying bout it being a Jeep thing waving to other Jeep drivers. Kinda cool...took a little getting used to, but I usually wave back now. haha
