Hey guys, I'm Tim. I'm fresh out of the Marine Corps and just purchased a 2013 Wrangler Sport Unlimited. This isn't my first Wrangler and certainly not my first Jeep. I had a 2008 Grand Cherokee with a 5.7L, a 99 Cherokee, a 98 Wrangler, and a 00 Grand Cherokee (which I just donated to my father). I haven't had the new Jeep more than 12 hours yet and it's already the best decision I've ever made. Traded in a 2009 Dodge Charger R/T for it. The Charger was very nicely built and I purchased that new as well. I'll miss it but I'm glad to be back into to Jeep life.
Okay so my Jeep is Commando Green. I'd like to militarize it a little. I don't plan on rock climbing but minor trail and beach use. Since it's a sport, I have a lot to do which will make it interesting. I'll keep you updated on its progress.
First thing I want to do is replace the long antennae with a short one. Any suggestions? Also want to put the side rails (correct me if I'm wrong but that's what the step rails are referred to as?) on it. Open to any suggestions and look forward to talking to you all.

Also, as mentioned that because this is the newbie check-in area, you may not get the answers you are looking for. I suggest you check out this forum area and post your questions there, I think you'll get a better response.
Welcome aboard and Semper Fi my brother. I'm not far south of Philly in Oxford. Jeep week is in OC Maryland this Thurs-Sun if you want to make a road trip to hook up with more jeep people. And Cars and Coffee at Quadratec this Sunday from 9-noon right in West Chester. Good looking new ride!
My Jeep doesn't leak, she just likes to mark her territory
