New Jeep Owner here

I've been lurking around on this board for awhile, researching Jeeps and getting to know their quirks and such from owners. After a few weeks of that, I decided the wrangler was a good vehicle fit for me. I just bought an 08 Wrangler X today and I am loving it. I had to drive a little to get the one I wanted, so I put in some highway time. It seemed like a perfect balance between ruggedness and on road manners and I was very pleased considering my trade in was a Mustang GT.

We require pictures from all new members.

Congrats! Once it warms up some more, your gonna love it more than that silly ol' Ford. I know I'm going to be enjoying the topless-ness in about a month on a camp out.

I've had it for three days now, and sorry, I haven't stopped driving long enough - 500 miles so far - to take pictures. I thought I might have some trouble switching from a low riding car to the Jeep, but honestly, now I'm wondering why anyone would drive anything else. I know people don't buy wranglers for the gas mileage, but it isn't too bad at all, very similar to the 'stang on the highway.

The gas is not bad (not good either), until you start personalizing. Tires, lift,etc........
