My FIRST Jeep Ever (Massachusetts)

Yesterday i bought Samantha - my first TJ and jeep. She is a 1997 Wrangler SE and the only noticeable modification from the last owner is an alpine speaker system and speaker bar. Sammy is a "four banger" (dealer called it that?) And i really dont know what she is capable of because i have never had a jeep. All i know is she has the smaller motor. Anyone else have a 4cy TJ that can give me some general tips.

Also besides parking next to other jeeps and waving to other owners - what are some other Jeep lifestyle "know hows"?


1997 Jeep Wrangler SE (4cy) Dark Green (last owner maintained her and she is nearly pristine)
