My girlfriend and I just bought a TJ last week for her to use as a daily driver. It's a 99 2.5 5 speed with A/C and a soft top. It needs some tuning up and some love, so we're looking forward to fixing a few things, making it nice, dressing it up, and driving the hell out of it!
It's great to be here, I've been trolling this forum for a week and I love it - everyone seems very nice.
And, for proof that we're no lightweights - I got it stuck in mud the day after we bought it! Heard of the severe drought we're having here in Georgia? We'll, we were blasting through some dried up portions of Lake Lanier and I got too cocky for the bald tires and sank into some mud/ silt about a foot high. I had to c-a-r-e-f-u-l-l-y drive my Ford 2WD out onto the beach and yank it out.
I hear ya, my wife does not understand it, but my kids love waving to other jeeps. Actually they scream at other jeeps, "Hi Jeep". If you are in Cumming we are not that far from each other. If you are intrested in joining a club to go riding with, just let me know.
03 TJ with a bunch of upgrades...
Welcome! I'm just down the road in Alpharetta. I havent been up to see my boat in months due to the lake dropping. I'm scared to even know how bad it looks. I guess if I cant get the boat out, I should be like you and go mudding on the banks!
