New Canadian Jeep owner

Hello, I just picked up my new 2013 Wrangler Sport today. I've always wanted a Jeep but I just never got around to it until now. I sold my 97 Camaro RS and took the plunge and I couldn't be happier.

I bought the base model with the updated engine and tube door steps. Other than that, there is nothing fancy in it at all; no power windows, air conditioning, power locks, etc. Nothing, and I LOVE how "clean" and uncluttered it looks without all the electronic gadgets. I drove it for about 5 hours today, just cruising around enjoying the open air and the view.

I can't wait to add thicker tires, LED lights, tail light guards etc. It looks a little dorky right now, but in a year or so, my Jeep will be how I want it.

I appreciate all the threads and advice I've been reading on here already. I stole one fella's idea of making handles out of para-rope to hand on to. Great stuff!
