Smile Newbie in Northern, VA

Hey everyone...I've finally got the ride I've been wanting since I was young. A Jeep Wrangler. Purchased a 1987 Wrangler 4cyl 5sp that had a new paint job (although not the greatest), powdercoated black wheels upgraded tires, and a new motor. I love it. Definitely takes getting used to how rugged and raw it is but can't beat it in the summer. I'm ready to take it to the beach for sure.

I'll definitely have a ton of questions to ask so I'm sure you'll be seeing my username often now.

Thanks everyone!

Smile Thanks for the welcome...

Thanks everyone for welcoming me in. I finally got a few pics of it up.

I just got a bestop soft top in spice along with bestop upper half doors. It's at the shop getting an alignment and tune up as I type this and hopefully ready to be driven more often. Been hesitant to drive if lately due to the heatwave we've been having here.
