Very New Newbie to the forum!!!


I just purchased my very first Jeep Wrangler Sahara Unlimited (08-soft top). I love this car. I've been on the road for the past 5 months but don't drive it as often as I would like. I live in NYC so on the train most times due to parking but I'm relocating south in a couple months.

The forum thus far has been a great way to learn more about my jeep and the experiences that you all have had with your jeep. Again, I'm new to the world of Jeep and open to advice on ways to keep my Jeep in top shape while enjoying this cool ride to the fullest.

Any tips on preparing for the different seasons (esp winter with a soft top that's not garaged), the most important look-for(s) when getting my jeep serviced and any other information that's relevant to making my experience with my jeep positive and lastly (i.e. road-rules...I quickly learned the wave while driving for the first time with the top down which felt great, accessories and/or other information that a newbie should be aware of), I'm all ears and do appreciate you sharing information.

Lets Ride well folks!!!

Welcome aboard! Road rules? Most of us usually stop to help out other Jeepers. We are a different breed, and I mean that in a good way. Always willing to help each other out

Welcome to the Forum

Winter, soft top, NYC. Let your Jeeps heater thaw/defrost your soft windows. Never scrape or try to knock the ice off. They can break pretty easily when cold. A good way to prevent frost from building up is to purchase a cab cover. The cab cover can be used with the top up and protects the windows from the elements.
