You forgot about Island Jeeps!

Hi everyone!

I've had my 2nd Jeep Wrangler, a 1991, for about a year now and I've finally decided to give her a little love and spiff her up a bit so I figured I'd stop in here and see what all of you have to say instead of trying to figure it all out on my own.

Thanks for having me!

Rachel

It's far too ugly for pics at this point but as I move along, I'll take some. Anyone know how to actually shine up the hood after it's oxidized all to heck?

I could be mistaken, but that looks like a shiny hood in your signature. I'm not judging, just sayin'...

Don't be fooled, he just did a Bo Duke slide across the hood, scraped the mud off w/ his indigo wrangler jeans!

Welcome!

Welcome, Rachel, to the best Jeep Wrangler forum on the planet. This is a pretty insane group but that's what makes it work. you know the adage, "It's a Jeep thing; you wouldn't understand." BTW, don't worry about the pics, we like you just as much - pics or not. Again, welcome!

Thanks!

I do love my rig. That's why I've made to commitment to do better than just limp it along until it dies. I want it right when I'm done. It just doesn't quite compare to some of the rigs here

Not many do! Don't let those few really hardcore rigs intimidate you, most of them started off like yours once upon a time!
