Smile Newbie Lady Jeeper

Newbie member from Sudbury Ontario Canada here. My Jeep story goes like this:
I had an 05 Wrangler unlimited on lease a few years ago which was returned to Chrysler at the start of the "downturn" in the auto industry. Chrysler wanted too much for the buyback on the lease and I didn't want to get stuck paying the tab on an inflated bill. I hated giving back the keys because I loved my black beauty. Hopefully someone else is enjoying her today.
A year ago I purchased a camp in the bush (on a nice lake) and needed a good vehicle to travel the 11 km adventure that can be loosely called a road. While on the way to camp my dad spotted a Jeep sitting on the side of the road with a for sale sign on her. "That's the exact type of vehicle you need to go into camp" he says, and points at the little 2000 TJ sport sitting there waiting for her next owner.
Long story short, I bought her, put on some new tires and had a ball joint replaced and she has been faithful and true each trip into the bush. I don't think she has been spotted without mud in the last year, I think it's like a badge of honour. I am happy to have made my second Jeep purchase and this time I am not afraid to test her limits. Looking forward to getting good advice on how to keep her road fit and what she can do for me on those more challenging bush trails that wind along behind the camp.

Not too many of us northerners on this site... I know there is one guy from Timmins around, and yourself from Sudbury. If your ever in the Temiskaming Shores area, shoot me an email!

Fellow northerner

Glad to know there are a least a few of us here. I am surprised as there is a very active Jeep club here in Sudbury that regularly meets for coffee and runs. A fellow lady Jeeper from work suggested I join as they can really help with the hands on advice regarding "off road" performance. I have not done any mods to her, she needs some minor work like the latches on the rear window of the hard top and some fender rust that needs attention. I am looking forward to taking off the hard top and switching to the soft top that came with the Jeep. (I hear that is an adventure in itself). This is where this forum will be most helpful.

I just put on my soft top on last friday of last week... Its a rush with it down Unfortunately, there is no clubs here. I've been thinking of starting one up and have a local website as well but these are just idea's. I have a friend in North Bay who designs sites and were kinda shooting ideas around on how to go about it...
