New to this forum....from New Hampshire.

Hello to anyone and everyone that might read this post. I recently (two days ago) purchased my third Jeep.....the newest being a 2012 Rubi. Unlimited. My first one I bought through a private sale for $2100 about five years ago....was a '91 Sahara. It was a rust bucket. I spent about a month and a half cutting out the rust, welding in new metal and threw a quick paint job on it. I drove it all summer and sold it that fall for $4200. At some point I'll post a few before and after pics, if I can figure out how to. My second Jeep was a '11 Wrangler Sport. We enjoyed it, but being our only vehicle wasn't the ideal vehicle for a three person family. Last week I did a Google search for '2012 Rubicon Unlimited Black For Sale in New England'......and found a dealer in Nashua, NH that had one for sale for $34,100....yes, you read that correctly.....$34,100. I talked it over with my wife and she said, "Yes, let's try to get a deal done." So, on Monday I took the day off from work, made the hour and a half drive to Nashua and came home with one awesome rig! Again, at some point, when I have the time and can figure out how to post pics, I'll be sure to. So far, we absolutely love it, especially our ten year old daughter...."Dad, I love having my own door and window!"

Just a little quick info about myself: This time of year I work seven days a week. Monday-Friday I work for the City of Keene, NH in the public works department. On the weekends I drive a small tour boat on Lake Sunapee, NH.....home of Aerosmith /'^'A'^'\ I'm not mechanically inclined, so if I ever ask any 'how to' questions, please be kind....haha.

Obviously, I'd love to drop a bunch of cash on some mods for my new Rubi., but I don't see that happening for quite some time. Although, my first purchase will be a set of floor mats......thinking about the Quadratec mats and cargo liner. Seems like a decent product for the price, though I did read in a thread here that sometimes the top of the mat gets in the way when using the clutch. Weathertech has a nice product, but as you know, they are much pricier! Any ideas?

Ok, I guess that's enough rambling on for now. I look forward to reading and learning lots here at Wrangler Forum.

Welcome to you ( from a fellow Keene neighbor). I too had several jeeps and went almost five years without one, but my kids and I are glad to have one yet again. I have seen pictures of Sunapee lake but we have never spent time up in the Sunapee area- We usually head up further north to camp in the Whites instead.

I recommend the mopar Jeep floormats. They contain the NH Winter slush my son brings into the back seat just fine and look great in my opinion.

I wish I had gotten a Rubicon. That sounds like a great deal. Sigh.

Be sure to post pictures when you get a chance so I know who I'm wavin at around town.

Here is mine.
