new here and new to a Jeep

Hey guys, just wanted to start off by introducing myself on the forum. My name is Eddie, and I am from the Miami area in Florida. Before I bought the Jeep, I used to have a 2006 Scion xB that was about 3" off the ground and would get stuck on speedbumps. Tired of living the "low-life" I decided that I would change to a completely different platform altogether, a Jeep. After endlessly searching Craigslist and Autotrader I eventually stumbled upon a red 5 speed 2000 TJ that was well taken care of. At first I was hesitant about the Jeep because it had 4 cylinders BUT coming from a car that weighed more than the jeep with 4 cylinders that was also extremely unaerodynamic, it was fine for me as the price was within my budget. Once I found the Jeep, I put my Scion on Autotrader and within 3 days it was sold. With the xB, I had a severe modding bug... Now that I have the Jeep, it seems to have worsened

Welcome from Michigan. I'am sure you will be more than happy with the jeep because they are a lot of fun just stock. or all the options out there to make it yours have fun!
