New To Forum

Well, I am new to this forum and to Jeeps. I bought a new used White 2010 Jeep Wrangler Sport with Sahara Trim Pckg, 18s, Power Packg, Dual Tops, etc...

Anyway, I am doing a few appearance mods and so far I know I have an antenna that will not come off and a steering wheel that is just a larger diameter than any of the 5 covers I have ordered. Not sure what the deal is there...

I will be doing a number of installs today: aluminum billet grill inserts, headlight/turn signal trim, door guards, Mopar gas cap cover, interior handles, etc...

Anyway will be searching threads for help.

Thanks. Now, if someone could please explain to me exactly why I seem to have the ONLY Jeep Wrangler with an antenna that does not screw off....OH PLEASE TELL ME WHY !!!! LOLZ...Okay maybe previous owner put Locktite on this thing...guess I will have to formulate something to remove it....Think I need to walk away from the antenna deal for awhile....that just sounded a little to over stressed...I just wanted to replace it with this cute little 13" black antenna...just for looks...It is not working out for me...and neither is a simple steering wheel cover...BUT, I do see my spare wheel cover for my Trans Am fits great...so just have to spend an hour wrapping and lacing it...

Well, got a lot accomplished. Installed grille inserts, headlight inserts, signal light inserts, grab handles, fuel cap door, spare wheel cover. I did get the stock antenna off. Had to use 2 wrenches and then I applied some anti-sieze compound to the threads. Looks a lot better now.

Next, would like to see if I can fit an Optima battery in the Jeep. Not so sure one will fit. I have one in my Trans Am could do a swap to check the fit.
