New Jeep Owner in NJ

I just bought my first jeep. So excited to finally have made the decision. I just got off the phone with the dealership. Bought a new crush sport with the connectivity and the power packages. Has a soft top but will be buying a hard top come October. I also got it in a manual. Can't wait to pick it up today after work.

A little about me. My name is Steve and I live near flemington NJ. Never owned a jeep (well I did own a liberty but that doesnt really count), but my mom and sister both have wrangler unlimiteds. We also have a '95 jeep as a beater. Everyone that comes to the house says it looks like a dealership. I work in fundraising doing major gifts for Rutgers University. Looking forward to meeting some jeep owners in NJ.

Hey steve welcome to WF. Certainly want to see pic when you pick it up. I just got my first wrangler in January. Had an old Grand Cherokee before that. I am in the South Jersey area so I mostly wheel in the pine barrens.

Thanks for the great welcome. I got to driver her home today after waiting 2 and half hours at the dealership to finish paper work. Apparently end of month was busy. I love the car and the ride is awesome. Can't wait to get her topless and dirty.

I used to live in Philly and I am down there all the time. Actually going to a Union game this weekend. So I'm up to wheel is SJ any weekend. I've just never done it, so just be gentle my first time.

Here is the only pic I got before it got dark

Another Rowan Alum here, oh how I loved my college days. In the next few weeks us SNJ jeepers and Philly Jeepers should get a little ride together through Wharton. I am getting lonely driving around there by myself. Once my buddys old YJ engine rebuild is done I would like to help organize something. Keep your eyes open on the WF local area. Should be fun.

Took her out for the first long drive today. Drove from central jersey to Philly to go see a Union game. Union had a draw but the jeep was great. Even with a soft top the ride was really quiet and super comfortable. I even splashed around in some puddles in the parking lot at the game. Really thrilled with this jeep. Can't wait to get on the mods. I'm poly filling the speakers tomorrow after golf.
