Hey guys & gals! I just bought the first "cool car" of my life, got it 2 days ago, a 2005 Wrangler Unlimited with 40k on it. 4.0 liter, 6 speed manual, and pretty darn near fully-loaded, if not completely. As far as upgrades, its gonna be my daily driver, so short-term I'm going to replace the factory head unit with one with a detachable face plate, and add the K&N Intake. It already has the 7 speaker system, so I don't think I need to rush into replacing speakers Beyond that, maybe mild increase in tire size, but like I said, daily driver. Here's a couple pics, they're the dealer shots, so they're not perfect, but there she is! Anyone else have these jumbo bucket seats? I look 10 years sitting in them! Any Unlimited-specific tips anyone has? And by searching I have decided to leave the thing unlocked, and keep nothing in it, I live in the inner city.. Thanks for the tips/welcomes!

So on Friday, I went to take the top down for the first time, and the thing is positively BEAT.. Broken, torn in numerous places that were carefully concealed by the previous owner. A dog collar was holding it together in one place.. In any event, the rear window won't go back in, because the zipper is ruined, and I spent hours getting the roof back on correctly. Its a certified used vehicle, so I brought it back to the lot and they looked it over and are ordering me a new soft top, which should come in today or tomorrow.. The kicker is that I just noticed a marker light is out. I know its not a big deal, but buying certified pre-owned was a major selling point of theirs, and if they didn't take the time to even check or fix the marker lights, how am I supposed to believe they really went through everything they claim? I'm really pissed right now.. I know I'll be getting a new top out of it, but I'm worried..
