New *gal* Indiana

Hello all!

I didn't realize there was such camaraderie amongst Wrangler owners until I began searching for mine-which has yet to be found.

The Wrangler has been my dream vehicle ever since I searched for my first vehicle out of college and test drove it over 10 years ago. The price of buying a newer Wrangler was out of my budget at the time and I ended up with a Blazer instead.

Then I got married, got a boat, and was responsible for the tow vehicle (my husband drives a company car). I've been driving a 5.9L Dodge Durango for the past several years (I like that it's a big powerful SUV-but it lacks the fun factor). Now we've moved up to a boat that is too big to be towed and I can buy whatever I want---finally!

I hope the folks here won't mind me asking questions as I continue the quest I've been on for the past couple of months. I have a habit of doing a lot of research before any purchase and am not an impulse buyer.

This is a fantastic forum with a ton of valuable information.

Thanks to all in advance,

Leslie

Thanks for the welcome guys! Would it be best to post my questions in the general forum or in the the TJ section? I have some general Wrangler buying questions (ie what to be wary of, look for, etc.)
I also have narrowed my Wrangler down to being "born" after 2004 (due to wanting a 2 door Unlimited) amongst other things.
Should I separate the two topics into the general and TJ forums, or post in one?

The Rubicon package would be worth the extra money, unless you want to spend the time and money to do some mods yourself.
Off road vehicles need 'Lockers' in the differentials, and D-44 axles are nice in a Jeep, the Rubicon package should have that covered.
Learn what a D-35 rear axle looks like and be prepaired to spend 15-$2500 to up-grade it. A D-35 is stressed-out in a grassy lawn, it has no business in the dirt nor on the rocks.
