Jeep newbie from No. Calif.

Hi everyone, bought my first Jeep last weekend. I've had 4WD's before (Chevy Tahoe, Mitsu Montero) but after renting a Wrangler in HI a few years ago, I had to have one. I originally planned to buy used but after doing my research and reading about the new 3.6L vs. the old 3.8, I had to have the new motor. There weren't many used 2012's on the market yet so I ended up buying new. I have a 2013 JK Unlimited Sahara and I love it. I'm a modding junkie and this Jeep too tempting. I just need to keep it under control since my wife will be driving it too. :-)

My regular car is another Mopar. It's a 2006 Chrysler 300 SRT. I've modded it as far as it will go so it'll be nice to have another project to work on. LOL. My wife won't appreciate it much since she gets tired of UPS showing up multiple times a week. I also have a couple of bikes but they are pretty much done modding wise too.

I think for now the mods will be for appearance only but we'll see once I get started.

Here's my new rig.


Here's a couple of my other toys.
