new guy from IL

going to pick up our Jeep this weekend...
2002 Wrangler x
6 cyl
5 spd
71,000 miles

It's been 11+ years since I've had a jeep.

Had a Rio Grande in the mid 90's, as well as a 76 CJ-7 that I did a complete redo on (glass body, suspension, etc.)


It'll be great to back in one of my own.


I live in Central IL (Havana)
Married almost 16 years
2 Daughters (9 & 4)
2 dogs (Golden Ret. & Standard Poodle)
2 cats

I am presently working at a manufacturing company in the office.
But will be attending Nursing School come this fall...

For the past 8 years, I've ridden Motorcycles and loved to tinker with mine.
Recently decided to get off the bike and spend more quality time with my girls.
So, the Jeep was a great choice... we'll use it to pull a trailer to the camp ground as well as explore around home...
Neither girl has ever been in a JEEP.


Plans for the Jeep
nothing major at this point..
May add some Fog Lights
but I'm sure the bug will bite at some point and I'll want more stuff.

Bob welcome to the forum! I have 3 girls myself, ages 9, 5 and 20 months and they all love riding in the jeep. We're from Northern Illinois (currently banished to Nebraska). Have fun with the jeep!

Firehawk...I lived in Bettendorf for a few years as a kid and my dad and some siblings still live there. I'll wave as I drive by. Any good jeeping roads in that area?

Welcome!

Welcome to the most imaginative yet technically correct Jeep Wrangler Forum to ever be created by the human beings! Glad to have you along for the crawl! Again, welcome to the world of mud bogs, stream crossings, rock crawling and mud inside and out of the vehicle!
