I'm one of those dreaded newbies

Got my first wrangler recently. Traded even for a Polaris atv! I'm lovin it so far. I've always wanted one. It's a 92 4.0 with a 3" lift and 33s. Really think the bouncy ride is fun. It reminds me of my dad's old cj renegade from when I was a kid. Any how look forward to meeting some fellow jeep owners and thanks in advance for all the advice I'm gonna need!!

The jeepster is a little rough. It's been siting over 15 years but I got it to start after a couple days of replacing stuff and the fuel is bad so I'll be dropping the tank soon I guess. It means a lot though being me late grandfather's.
The Polaris was an 07 500 with winch I liked it but I get to drive my jeep anywhere not just on the trails. I haven't got to take the jeep to the trail yet though : )

Welcome to the forum. There's a nice outfitter somewhere in Alcoa that can help you with your mods when you want. Can't think of the name though.

Welcome!

What he said

I inherited a bayonet from my Grandfather... He carried it in Market Garden during WWII and it's absolutely priceless to me...

A jeepster with the same heritage value would be double awesome.

Welcome!
I have "tough enough" in morristown nearby and "the jeep doctor" in Jefferson city that I plan to use. They are a little closer to where I live than alcoa. Thanks though, I'll have to use them when I compare prices.
