New to forum and Wranglers

Hey all! Just got my first wrangler. Excited so far. I live near the beach and a lot of water and wanted something i could drive on the beach and haul kayaks and boats and such with so I traded in my muscle car and grabbed a Wrangler.

So far enjoying riding around with the top in bikini mode. Hoping to hit the beach this weekend in it. I dont really know anything about Wranglers so I'll be all over this forum reading and asking questions. I attached a picture, if you look closely you can see the Camaro I traded to get my Wrangler.

Names Matt btw

lol you dont love my steelies? they are pretty hideous. Powder coat might do the trick. Hell I have some left over plastidip at the house . Getting what I want is going to be expensive. Thinking of swapping to the 17" or 18" in the meantime.

Thanks for all the welcomes guys. I did change out the wheels. Didnt get what I wanted but I put the 18s that come on the Saharas on. It still made a big difference. Also grabbed some side steps yesterday to put on this weekend. Threw in some slush mats and ordered some grab handles for everyone (after a bumpy ride on the beach last weekend ) Let the modding begin!

Oh there is a customary wave when I see other Jeep owners? I know Camaro owners have one, Harley owners, etc. Didn't know Jeep had one. Is it a certain wave like Harley guys kind of do a two finger pointing wave?

Typically CJ/Wrangler owners. Either wave out the window, lift of the fingers off the steering wheel, whichever you have time for.

Google and you will see many sites explaining it.

I have noticed its hit or miss with some JK owners as many don't know or dont care they are driving a descendant of the one true Jeep.
