So... I'm Mark, 18 years old and a new jeeper. I just dropped 10 grand, my life saving, on an Automatic 04' wrangler x (4.0L, inline 6) in may of 2010 right before I got my license. I may not know my way around my jeep too much but I know enough to do minor things.
Over the past year, I took off the old bald stock tires and threw on some 31x10.5 wrangler duratracs along with a 2" spring lift. With some minor upgrades from the stereo to the horn, I haven't done much yet but as the paychecks come in, the jeep gets nicer.
