new guy from NJ

Hey everybody new to the forum so I figured I'd start off my posts by introducing myself.

I have always loved Jeeps just never owned one up until about last week when I had an opportunity to buy a friends from him.

It's a 1999 6cyl 5spd. solar yellow 4 inch lift on 32's right now but that will be changing. It's got a few other off road fun stuff on it and I will be adding more and I figure this will be a good place to start.

Now for the fun part of the story. So as I said I bought the TJ last week well on this Saturday after having the jeep for all of about 6 days I found myself in the middle of a 5 car pile up . Basically I was the second car from the front in the line of 5 cars. The first three of us were at a dead stop sitting in traffic when the fifth car(a yukon denali) decided he wasn't stopping I guess and just plowed into the back of the last car driving us all into each other. Needless to say it was not a good time hah. After assessing all of the damage every car was totaled except for my jeep . I did have to put the TJ into 4 wheel so that I could drive off of VW that was behind/under me but everything was good to go for the most part other then some scrapes and a dented gas tank brace. Car that I hit in front of me was completely mangled in the back end thanks to my Steel bumper/winch but my winch was even totally ok. It was actually kind of funny to watch all of the emergency people continue to look at my Jeep in amazement as if it wasn't in the accident at all haha. So luckily as everyone else was being loaded onto flat beds I was able to drive myself away with only minor bruises and scrapes thanks to my good ol' Jeep.
