Red face Introduction...

Hi. I felt rude just lurking, so I thought I'd introduce myself. I'm not sure how much posting I'll be doing in the next month as I'm 150% in "education mode" right now.

I just got my first Jeep (94 YJ) after wanting one since I was 6 years old. (my dad had an old late 40's Willy and a 70's CJ that we took to the desert). I'm 33 now,soYep, that 27 years that I've been eyeing, drooling over and basically being jealous as hell over each and every Jeep I've seen on the road. I've only had her a week, and am still beyond giddy. My husband is LOVING my good mood. HAHA

So, beyond petting her each night and telling her how loved she is, I'm trying to really educate myself on as much as I can before I do ANYTHING.

So, I'll be lurking for a bit, hope you all don't mind. :o

Jamie (AKA newbie)

Welcome to WF, Jamie!
I'd wanted a jeep since I was a kid, too. Finally got my first one in 1996. I'm on my second wrangler and happy as can be.

Welcome aboard. I'd wanted a Jeep since my 16th birthday. I didn't get it until I was 33. This is a great place to learn. I wish I had learned more before doing many improvements. I would have saved tons of money.

Welcome to the forum Jamie!!! That giddy feeling doesn't go away. I'm also 33 and have had mine for 4 months now. I can't help but smile every time I look out the window at him (decided it was a "him" after I added the 32" BFG MT's).

Jamie welcome to WF

you're not alone in that you wanted a Jeep beginning at a young age. I got my ride a few months after turning 50.

Some things you wish you would have done sooner but this has been worth the wait for me. If you enjoy your ride half as much as I enjoy mine then you have it made.
