Thank You Wrangler Forum!!!

While waiting for my rig to arrive from Toledo, I've been scouring this board and have learned so much in the past few weeks! You guys have ingenious money saving ideas and have saved me a ton of money and helped Re-Jeep educate myself! I haven't had a Jeep since 2006 and am looking forward to being back as a part of the Jeep community!!!!

Congrats on the new ride! Sounds killer.

Don't be afraid to crawl around underneath and look in every nook and cranny with a flashlight and test every single button, every gear, lockers and light before you accept delivery.

I used to work for a dealer, you'd be suprised at the stuff people find missing, loose, broken and flat out non-functional in brand new cars.

Most of it is typical but making an appointment to come back and get something fixed with a new rig sucks.

Common one was the plastic blocks they put inside the coil springs for shipment getting left in place.
Talk about a rock hard ride!

Funny you mention those plastic blocks.I work for a VW/Audi dlr & the other day i got a Passat in for reg maint & i found it still had those blocks installed after a year of the customer owning it.I made the mistake of removing them.The customer came back complaining the suspension felt loose & not as sporty.What a mess,I should have left them in there lol.
