New Jeep Owner!!!

Just purchased a 2012 Wrangler Sports S!!! It will not officially be mine until Tues. when I accept delivery. But I am really excited!!!

This is my first Jeep. Gonna leave it stock for a bit, then I'll put maybe a 3" lift and some 33's or 35's on it. Bumpers and such later.

I would like to hear any suggestions/ do's and don't that anyone may have.

Glad to be a part of the community!!!

Welcome!! Don't raise the center of gravity until your skills catch up with those of the vehicle. If you've never been offroad the Jeep is waaaaay ahead of you stock. Never go offroad alone! Look into some recovery gear, Pull points (hooks) recovery strap (no metal hooks) Maybe some skip plates for the tranny, oil pan. And look for a local Jeep club then Get Involved If they don't do wrenching nights (you all get together and work on someones lift,skids, whatever) start them. It's great night out and you learn a ton. But above all else have FUN!
