New guy stationed at Fairchild AFB

Hi all,

I recently purchased a 2000 wrangler sport and it is my first jeep. For the past 10 years i have built imports, two in which had 16 page spreads in magazines for being the two fastest acura rsx type s in the country. So, i am not new to building cars but I am new to the Jeep world. I was sick of building high boosted cars and spending thousands upon thousands to have 600+ whp for no reason (speed limit is 70 max so why have the extra power if i can not use it up here). So i decided to buy a vehicle that was the complete opposite of being lower to the ground, 600+whp and something that is going to be able to handle a beating Jeep is where i ended and i am glad i did!

I am in the USAF currently stationed at Fairchild AFB. I was in the Special Operations Pararescue pipeline before i got injured and in the hospital for a while. If you are stationed at FAFB or around the spokane, WA area let me know. I would definitely like to meet other jeep owners etcetera.

Well, after all is said and done i can not wait to do more to my Jeep and have fun.

-Paul

Im currently security forces and its not what i would choose as a job, but at least im still in the AF thats what matters...

haha i love the rice burners comment lmao..it cracked me up. I get that a lot, but if you saw some of the cars i have built (s2000, evo, sti etc) i think anyone would have some appreciation..maybe not lol

I was just checking the WA forum out and i am trying to find a local WA sale, trade, wtb thread but i dont think they have one.

No problem at all sir If you want any information on the pipeline and indoc let me know and i will fill your plate with more then you asked for.

Would you be going C.R.O or enlisted if you decided to join? Also if you wanted to speak with a PJ and ask first hand on what he does day to day and how the deployments are, a close friend of mine is stationed in Georgia. I'd be glad to help you out if you need/want information.

Do you currently attend UofA?

Welcome! I'm in Montana but a bunch of us met last month at the Spokane ORV park, and were planning monthly get togethers. Search the thread "Spokane ORV Park???" and say hi there.

thank you sir!
I would love to get more information on it. It seems all my older friends are Army Spec Ops or Seals, and they don't know too much about PJ's. I would be going as C.R.O.

Yes, I currently attend U of A. Go Wildcats

Lucky Im jealous your stationed in California. I am originally from Southern California and still visit there once in a while. My brother went to UC berkeley so that is where i go to see him.

Its great to meet more military on this forum. The other forums i have been on (non-jeep) do not have many military.
