Hi Everyone!, New Jeeper in TX

Hi everyone! My name is Jared and live in Houston, Tx. My work in the oilfields south of San Antonio forced me to make a move that I should have made years ago.

I just recently got back in oilfield work and on my 3rd job out, had to take a 7 mile long ranch road outside of Catarina, Tx to the rig site. Long story short, it took me over an hour to transverse that stretch of road in my '96 Corvette...never again. Y'all could have done a little of this and this while I was doing this .

Back in Houston, I picked up my first choice of a TJ...an '05 Unlimited. A Rubicon would be nice as well as more mods, but I love it!

** It's not a Rubi; a previous owner put those Rubi stickers on which are about to come off. **





I'm a speed junkie, but have always enjoyed off-roading and have wanted to build my own rig.

Thank you all for your unknowing help through the info on these boards.

Jared

Mods:

Current Mods (the way I bought it):

2-2.5" suspension lift (looks like a Rough Country)
285/75R16s on Moabs
Front Bumper Jugs removed.

Other than that, it looks and appears to be stock.

Thank you everyone for the warm welcome and compliments.

Yep, it has a "4" in the VIN so it's a Sahara.

I really love it and got it b/c it was so clean, but I almost wish it wasn't so pretty because then I wouldn't be so hesitant to tear into it.
