New to the forum


So after 6+ months of obsessing about XJs and budget builds, I convinced my wife that since we never drive her coupe we should trade it for a Jeep.

Having a trade in significantly changed my budget, I picked up an '03 TJ Sport on 31s and can hardly wait to get it out in the mountains. Going to be on a reasonably tight budget for at least the next year+, the wife just went back to school.

I am in the Seattle area and looking for somewhere to cut my teeth with some light offroading. I would appreciate any suggestions especially if close to the south end of Seattle.

Looking forward to digging in and seeing what others have done on a budget.
