Michigan newbie

Hey all,

Been doing some research and decided to join. I never knew this forum existed, until tonights surfing. Must say this seems to be the best Jeep forum site I have found.

I am looking for my first Jeep right now, probably going to be a YJ, just because they are in my price range.

I am from SW Michigan, north of Kalamazoo.

Stay safe

Welcome to the forum! I am from SE Michigan mysellf, about 45 minutes North of Ann Arbor. You should be able to find answers to most of your questions here, and don't be afraid to ask "newbie questions" here, we all did at some point!

Ain't it a hoot how SO MANY of us are saying we USED to live in MI? Most of my family is still in the Muskegon area...

I'm going to try and visit this summer for my once-every-five-years trip.
