Hey everyone, this may be a tad longer than the ordinary "Yo!"
I inherited a 99 Jeep Wrangler TJ (I think?) kind of against my wishes... It hadn't been run in three years and being a college student I am content with my motosickle, so admittedly I went down, in a grumpy mood, and picked up the Jeep, cleaned out all the trash left over from my family member and filled her up with gas, got a jump and went to Oreilly's and slapped a new battery in her since she wouldn't hold a charge. Finally, I got on the road and rumbled up to Berkeley, I like to think of myself as a decent and adaptable driver and the slippery feeling nature of the jeep put a smile on my face and is nice to be kind of a brute rolling down the road vs being nimble on the bike. Once I parked I left it there for a day because i commute on my bike, and the second day I came outside it was gone! I spent eight hours getting it back from the Police and then smogged
(no smog on motorcycles...stupid me) Now I drove it to school the past two days because of the rain and I've been really digging it. It has 31x10.5 R15 mud/snow tires on it (based on what I've read so far on this great forum this is a acceptable starter size) I decided that I'm going to join a few friends of mine in the 4-wheelin' community back in my Highschool Town and go to Hollister in a few weeks to test her and see what she needs regarding suspension. The Jeep itself is immaculate aside from the front bumper is bent on the left a little bit... I'm planning on welding a new one though however, so this is a non issue, and as I understand it battle scars are a good thing. I also am thinking about a nice custom decal for the windshield since the hard top comes off. Anyway this is my first non motorcycle/german car vehicle, let me know about any first things I should do... thanks! and I'm glad to be a part of this great forum!
p.s. I love the jeep even though i was a little standoffish as I said above, and have already received compliments on it! fun stuff!
