Hello from Chicago

Hey everyone my name is Joe and I am a first time Jeep owner, previously I drove a 2008 VW GTI and I loved it but I wanted something different. I ended up buying a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Sport and I LOVE it. So far my mods are Rugged ridge rock sliders and I also got some 265/75/16 Duratracs with Level 8 Strike 5's. My plans with the jeep are not to crazy, if and when I do go off roading I just want to accomplish some trails. So far so good with this Jeep though I absolutely love it!

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! Part of the reason why I bought my Jeep is because the amazing community surrounding it. I had fun within the VW community but I am really looking forward to the Jeep community. Thanks again everyone!

I 'm looking at the same wheel / tire combo that you have. Hows the road noise on highway? Still happy with the level. 8's ?

Sounds like what I did. Sold my wife's 2011 Jetta sportwagon TDI and got her a 2013 Sahara Unlimited. Welcome to the club!
