New From Oregon

Hello All,

I'm new to the Jeep world. I've always wanted a Jeep and this past winter I was able to get one. It's a 1995 Wrangler with less than 100,000 miles on it. It used to belong to my sister who never drove it anywhere except on the pavement. She just had a baby so she needed a more family friendly car. I swooped in and got it.

It's basically stock. I did put some 31 inch tires on it but haven't been able to do much more than that. I'm currently out of the country right now and my Jeep is tucked away in a garage.

I look forward to reading as much as I can on the forum before I get back to the states. I would like to build it up and make it trail worthy. Any advice, tips, dos and don't would be appreciated. Thanks.

-Brett

Thanks everyone. I've already learned a ton by just surfing the site. My first order of business is to learn the Jeep/4 X 4 language. I'm currently in South Korea and have discovered that you can get more accomplished if you know some of the local dialect.

So what are you doing in S. Korea and where in Oregon are you from?


EDIT: Where are my manners? Welcome to the forum.
from Spokane.

I'm currently teaching English at a middle school in SE Seoul. I've been doing this off and on for 7 years. I grew up in Beaverton, a suburb of Portland. I have lived all over the state though.

That's cool your teaching English over there.

I've been to Beaverton a few times. I spent the first 26 years of my life in Lebanon. Don't know if you know where that is at.

I know exactly where Lebanon is. I went to Western Oregon Univ. for a couple semesters until I flunked out. One of my good friends was from Lebanon. I like Spokane during the warm weather. Unfortunately, it's get really cold there.

Yup, Lebanon is a nice small town.

I've not been here for a winter yet but I've been hearing stories. Like winter before last....96 inches of snow in just over a month.

Well Coyote,

I guess you're driving the right Spokane vehicle.

Sadly, I sold the YJ just before I left England, but the TJ will be good to go once I'm done with it.
