New YJ owner.

Hello, I am new to the forum and to owning a jeep for myself. I grew up riding around sitting on an ammo can in the back of my grandfather's '52 Willys.
Now after a few tours in a few foreign countries, I am back in the states and figured if I need a car, I should enjoy it. Therefore, 95 Wrangler Rio Grande. It is bone stock with a 4 cylinder and a manual transmission.

Thanks for the welcome! I have already learned a lot from this forum.
I guess I failed to mention that I'm a disabled Army soldier currently being medically retired.

I know how you feel, AW101. I was Infantry at first, then went to intel with intention of staying for career. Now I can't walk easily and missed hiking, so I did the next best thing... got a jeep! It can take me almost as far as my boots could before, and some places I wouldn't have gone.
Thanks for the warm welcome. So far i really like the YJ. The engine is enough for the freeway and it can putt it's way up some impossible grades. This one was the perfect find for me: lowish miles (125k), 4 cyl (grew up helping grandpa with his 4 cyl willys so i believe in it), manual (cars shouldn't drive themselves), and green. I didnt want anything with a huge lift and giant tires because it is to be my only car so it has to be able to handle the freeway, however uncomfortably, and take me everywhere I want to go.
I appreciate groups like this one because everyone is so willing to share their information and experiences with little bias or salesmanship. No BS, just helpful info. Thank you all.
