Greetings humans!

I am not just new to this site, I am a happy new jeep owner. I have had my '97 Wrangler Sahara for a little over a year now, so I still consider myself 'new'. I absolutely love my jeep, and all of my 'big truck' owning friends that have driven my jeep, swear they want one.

About 6 months after I got my jeep, I rolled it. I was dumb. I should have had it in 4 wheel high, and I would not have lost traction on the ice like I did, and subsequently rolled down a hill (picture as my avatar).

The only real damage was to the hard top. So I picked up a frameless soft top from Rampage. I love it. And I doubt I will get rid of it for another hard top unless I can get a hard top that has the same fast back look that my soft top does. It takes some of the high top sneaker look out of it, and gives the jeep a more sporty look I think. So, if anyone knows where I can have something like this done, let me know!

I am planning to rebuild the back seat into a speaker box to house two 15" subs, and it still function as a back seat. I will also be adding 2 8" mid subs, and 2 6.5 mid range to complete the set. This will of course require a dual battery cradle, and an alternator that puts out more than the measly 72 amps the factory one does. And this is all just the stereo!

I have many, many plans for my jeep, and I will more than likely be looking here for many of the answers I need.

Are you gonna cowboy up? Or just lay there and bleed?
