It's Been 18 Years!!

Hi All:
I've been lurking here now for over a month and now it's time!

It's been 18 years since I sold my '88 YJ and began driving "sensible" daily drivers. Now the nest is empty, I'm retired and my better half suggested jokingly to get a new Jeep.
Well I'll be picking up my Gecko JK Sport this Sat. and can't wait. Although I probably will not miss some of the old YJ characteristics like poor heat in winter, hitting bumps in pavement at -10 deg. below and becoming airborne.
For all you youngsters out there: These new fangled JK's are positively luxurious compared to the CJ's & YJ's I was used to.

I will add to this and say I am also back after a long hiatus without a jeep. I had a '78 CJ5 back in college in the 80's in the mountains of NC for 2 years. I just purchased a used 04 TJ sport today and pick it up tomorrow from the dealership. Mine was also a suggestion of my wife after constantly talking about all the fun I had 4 wheeling in college and after renting one on a recent vacation, she was sold. I am really looking forward to this new model and will be looking for any and all advice on where to go, what you do and how to male this a decent offroader while not making it too crazy to drive around town and maybe trips to the coast and mountains of NC.
