New member in Round Rock about to buy 1st Jeep!

Hello everyone! I'm new to the forum and in the process of buying my first Jeep Wrangler. I was hoping to hold out for a 4-Door because I have two children but the cost is going rule those out. I'm now looking at two different 2006 models; one is an Unlimited model and one is the regular length (both are soft tops). I don't know any pros/cons to either one besides the extra room the Unlimited would offer. My kids are 3 and 5 (both boys) and can pretty much get into their own car seats by themselves. Also, they are only in my vehicle about 5% of the time. We have another vehicle that we drive most of the time.

Any advice or suggestions?

Are there any Austin Jeep clubs? I would love some help getting to know my new Jeep and how to use it's features. I have never driven off road and don't plan on going nuts, just enjoying trails where I can.

Thanks, and I look forward to exploring my new Jeep lifestyle and meeting fellow Jeep owners in our area!

Welcome to WF, those with kids will be able to answer your Q's better. I'd say the Unlimited is the best choice though.

Yeah, read this in a couple of years and get a good laugh.

Not many of us intended on going nuts, either.

Welcome to the assylum.
