Noob TJ Owner in Oklahoma

Hello, John here. So how did I come to own a '97 TJ? I guess it started with a new Dodge Challenger SRT8 and a golden retriever. Short point they don't mix well. Needed something in the family to haul the dog.

I spend a LOT of time at a place called AllPar a Chrysler LLC enthusiast site. A lot of threads derail over the direction of where Jeep is going. At first I resented it. Over time I learned how special the Wrangler is, how Jeep lives off what the Wrangler represents. I'm a military guy with a lot of hours behind the wheel of the HMMWV. I respect the Wrangler.

The plan was leasing a new Jeep Patriot for dog and family hauling. Then a friend was upgrading to a 2010 Wrangler Unlimited, very sharp in black. The price on his '97 Sahara was too good to pass up. A chance to own a "real Jeep". Some day soon with roof/doors off on a tree lined trail!

My goal is to learn about proper upkeep by doing more wrenching on my own. Learn the standard noob stuff. To hook up with fellow Wrangler enthusiasts in my area.
