Talking Hi from Australia :)

Hi all, I've just signed up - this looks like a great forum to discuss my new JK.

I don't have much of a Jeep history (yet), my husband has been well into Jeeps for years now and started out with his old TJ, then a 4 door 2010 JK Wrangler. He decided to upgrade to a Grand Cherokee this year so we said goodbye to our old Wrangler.

Through a bit of a fluke, I ended up buying a 2 door 2011 JK Wrangler Rubicon as my very own car and I must say I've been LOVING it ever since. I've only had her a month or two, but it was pretty much love at first drive.

Haven't put any mods or upgrades on her yet, but have been eagerly looking around ever since. Just trying to make my mind up on which way to go (there's a lot of options for front bars, etc, and I can't quite decide which ones I like the best!)

I haven't properly taken her off-road yet, but there's a few social 4WD days coming up that I'm signed up for and I'm really looking forward to it - looking forward to getting my first real 4WD'ing in and knowing I have an incredibly capable vehicle all ready to go for it.

So if anyone has any advice or tips on where they started with their own JKs, all would be very welcomed and thanks in advance. I look forward to getting to know you all.

And I look forward to sharing the pics once I do start adding and changing my little Rubi!

Welcome to the forum. In fact one of the moderators is from down under. I am sure she will chime in here soon. In fact so are both my ARB lockers.

Thanks all for the welcomes! Looking forward to seeing you all around the boards. I'm sure I have lots of questions for those more experienced.

Did he move to a Grand Cherokee SUV (WK, WK2) or Grand Cherokee Jeep (ZJ, WJ)?
