Newbie from Indiana

Just bought my first jeep a couple weeks ago. Looking forward to learning more about it, and pushing it to the limit.
Bought an '02 Wrangler Sport from a guy that also owned a jeep rock crawler with a LT1 engine and 42" tires. He customized this one underneath with things I don't even understand yet, but it's a tank. I know he did it right and took pride in his work.
Only things he didn't add are the things I look forward to purchasing like bumpers, winches and other aesthetic improvements.
Looking forward to finding some good trails around northeast Indiana and beyond. If anyone knows of some good spots feel free to let me know.
Still getting used to the whole waving at other jeeps thing, so if u see me out and I forget, feel free to flip the bird as a good reminder!
See you on the trails!

Sweet TJ

Hey I also live in Fort Wayne and have family in the Angola area as well , welcome to the jeep scene !!! I've just started modifying my jeep this year as it's been a street queen it's whole life and what fun is that ? Lol , I lifted it this summer then rolled it at ODZ jeep jam so decided to get the saw out and start customizing it some ( tube fenders in progress ) ( flare delete) ( cut the rear quarters out) ( frenched in LEDs front and rear) I envy the long arm lift you have for sure !! I'm looking at buying 30 acres of land in the butler area and cutting some trails out just for me and my fellow local northern indiana boys to have a fun and local place to wheel more than once a year , I as well have a hard time finding places to go so if anyone has a spot let me know I'd love to join in !! I'm in the middle of the ever so dreaded 2.5 5 speed to a 4.0 H.O. AW4 Auto swap that everyone says not to do and I'm gonna get it right !!! Pm me with any info or aftermarket / custom parts anyone may have available in my area !!!
