Joined the jk crew today!

Hey guys I just wanted to stop in quick and let you all know that I joined the ranks today! I am super excited, as this is my first jeep. So far I have loved every minute of driving the thing.

Nicely done and welcome to the ranks.

Now go get it dirty and break stuff so you can justify buying better stuff!

Congrats! I have a 14 JK coming with those same tires/rims. I am going to spray them matte black and use them for the winter and possible next summer if I dont have the cash flow right away.

I am really debating on plasti dipping them for the time being or.... dropping the money now and getting tires/wheels. I'm leaning towards the later though as I don't think mb tko 15s and 33 duratracs will be too expensive.

You can get a full set of Sport S take offs with pretty much new tires for $650 or 700. Cheapest way to improve the looks by 100%.

I did the same thing, my only options were A/C and 3.73's. If there was a way to ditch about 60% more of the electronic crap, I would have jumped at it even if doing that cost extra, not less.

Good luck with 'er!

Welcome. There's no better way to just empty every pocket.

Congrats! I joined the crew a couple weeks ago. I was missing my '01 TJ at first, because it was a more primitive kind of fun: loud and bouncy, with wind whistling under the hard top.
I'm forgetting about it fast, though. The '13 is a darned nice ride!

Yep, yours looks identical... I bought a set of Sport S wheels the week I got it. Have ProComp 7036's and 35" Duratracs on the way, Teraflex 2.5 is sitting here for whenever I can free up some time.

I always buy strippers and add everything I want!
