New and on the move...

Hi all! My name's Mike, I'm new to Jeeps with the exception of riding in my pops' when I was a kid (of which I have fond memories). I was born in, and currently live in, Georgia, but grew up/was raised in Washington (State). I am finishing up with three years of work here in GA and headed back to WA in a few weeks. I felt that with going back to WA, my car wasn't as practical as I would've liked and wanted something with a bit more utility, so I traded in my *gulp* Challenger SRT8 for a '13 Wrangler Sport. I went with a base model to save some $$$ (short term) and because I like to tinker (long term). When I walked into the dealer, I told them the only option that I wanted was the 3.73 axle. Unfortunately, I didn't realize that the colors that I was looking for (Gecko or Crush) were "limited", so he had to hunt down one for me. I ended up getting more options than I wanted (A/C, UConnect..."standard" customer preferred stuff) but my Crush should be arriving at the dealership today. Until then, they gave me one off of the lot to drive, and it's taken all my self control not to take it off of the pavement. I look forward to getting to know everyone and learning a lot about Jeeps (as my knowledge of them right now is next to null). Thanks for taking the time. Mike.

Well, Emma is all mine. Had to pull her from TN but I know it was meant to be. lol There was a little bit 'o craziness because the dealer that had her put on some type of "Realtree" overlay stuff on the wheels and around the outside of the tail lights. Other than that and the A/C, she is bare bones stock like I wanted. My dealer said he would put the wheels back stock if I wanted, but I figured "Why not leave's unique." I have already gotten kudos from some neighbors about it. Emma and I here after getting home from the lot. There are more pics in my Garage (including one quick shot of a "Realtree" wheel). Super amped!
