My name is Jo and I am a zookeeper from the Pittsburgh area. Also, I am new to the Jeep and Mopar world. I just recently sold my 2002 Ford F350 Powerstroke due to rusting problems, and bought a Jeep.
I deeply miss my truck, but am having a blast with my Jeep. I bought a 2003 Jeep Wrangler Sahara about three weeks ago.
Here is "Rex" the day I bought him:
Three weeks in and this morning I put on smoked marker and tail lights and blacked out Jeep emblems:
I also got a soft top for him as well, except summer doesn't seem to have ever actually came to the Pittsburgh area this year and it's been fall weather for the past few weeks, so I am probably just going to wait until next spring to put the soft top on.
I got some big plans for Rex too. I am thinking of finishing out my blacked out look with black weeks. Probably will go with a 2" lift, some more rugged tires, bolt on style fender flares, tube style bumpers, and here's the kicker.. I want to get Jurassic Park tour Jeep style vinyls and make Rex my own version of the JP tour Jeep. I also want to put on some exhaust.
Right now I am thinking Flow Master 40 series, but was told today that it's pointless to put exhaust on a I6 cause it just makes them sounds like coffee cans.. I don't know about this. I am a big fan of a good throaty sound, what do you all think?
Well that's my rant for now. Nice to meet everyone!
