I'm new to the jeep family

Hi everyone,
I just recently purchased a 2008 Jeep Wrangler and I couldnt be happier. This is my first jeep so any advice on upkeep, maintenance and maybe if any of you are in the Pensacola FL area that can tell me some good places to get use of my 4WD that would be awesome too!

Congrats on the new Jeep. I agree with Green Machine.. change all of the fluids, and then enjoy. Just remember to "Tread Lightly". Go slow, learn what your JK can do, and enjoy.
