New Jeep

I'm new to these boards and posted on the new information forum a few weeks ago. Bought a 2011 Rubicon last Thursday! I've had a lot cars in the past 40 years but none have me as excited as this vehicle. Glad to be part of the club.

I know I need to put together a recovery kit, learn how to drive off road correctly, etc. Any other advice?

Thanks for the advice.

Congratulations! And definitely worry about that second part well before the first part. Don't go buying a bunch of stuff until you know what you need and if you need it!

Find a local club and hook up for a couple of trail runs. Definitely agree with jeffk, take it out to play before you start throwing money into mods that you don't need. You will be surprised at how capable your stock jeep is. Just take it out, have fun and get dirty. Trust me, if you hang out here long enough, you will find all kinds of things to spend your money on. Congrats on your new Jeep.

Oh, and don't forget to WAVE

Thats the best advice (JDs), be careful of the LOOKING COOL" syndrome !!

Just remember that everything you ADD to your JKU-will need further mods to either adjust/supplement/enhance-etc-

It's a never ending "Money Pit" !!

Congrats! Great choice on the color too. I have a Flame Red '10 Rubi. Do the 2011's have the charcoal grey wheels? Hard to tell from your pic...

Completely agree. Hook up with a local club, do some runs, and see what your jeep can do. Find another jeep that performs the way you want yours to perform, and copy the build.

Have fun, get dirty, and wave!

Not sure what the OP meant by recovery gear but none of the Jeep crews in my area will let you ride without at least a snatch strap and a CB. I'd add a hi-lift and some work gloves to that list and you're off to the races.

Same here. Groups I have looked at wheeling with have minimum requirements. I'm a ham radio operator and had to put a CB set in next to the ham radio. I put a big a$$ed whip on it. I take a lot of shots from my ham buddies but I have so much fun in the jeep, I just laugh it off. The CB is really useful on an outing both for safety and conversation as you move along. When not wheeling, the CB is off. Ham radio is on. Having a ham radio in the jeep is like driving with a buddy all the time. Best of both worlds while wheeling and on the road.
