I've been lurking on these forums for quite sometime and thought I would say hello to everyone.
My girlfriend bought an 04 TJ X 4.0 Manual a year or two ago. She always wanted one since Jurassic Park came out. Pretty much stock, upgraded the shocks not to long ago. We had a chance to go to Moab last summer and it was great. I was truly amazed what a stock wrangler can do!
I drive a 09 Gti and while I love it, there is something very unique about driving a wrangler. The no frills, down to business attitude of the wrangler is hard to find.
We are working on getting on the maintenance up to date. Will be soon replacing most of the steering components that is causing dw. When were finished with college I hope to turn her tj into an off road beast and conquer the difficult/extreme trails in Moab!
This forum is great, tons of info and lots of very smart people. Would like to meet up with some fellow jeeps and do a bunch of trails in the summer!
