Never too late to be a Jeep Babe!

I did it! I bought my first jeep and I am soooo excited. Now, someone please tell me that it wasn't a huge mistake! I know nothing about them except I've wanted one for years and now it's my turn! I got a 89 Wrangler Sahara. So what do I need to know!

Thanks for the input!

welcome to the forum and congrats on your YJ.

where to start? she takes unleaded, change oil regularly along with fluids...that's it till it gets growly I'm not being a dork either check or change out all your fluids so you know everything is fresh. take off the top, doors, fire that thing up, and live a little

Welcome... To start, remove the doors and windows and top, and go cruising up and down the coast.... and after you do that, i promise, you will no longer have buyers remorse...

Congrats on the new Jeep. The first thing you need to know is to wave at all Wrangler owners. Yes all of them no matter what year they are. Some will not wave back, but you will find a sense of pride when they do wave back.

Welcome, New Jeep Babes are always welcome. Like everybody else has said, take the doors off - put the top down - and just drive. Do that for a month then remind yourself that you once wondered about buyers remorse. Take lots of pics, get dirty, take more pics. Don't forget to wave.
