Noob Jeep owner!

Hello all!

I finally got one...it only took thirty years of dreamin' about it...

My Suburban K2500 4x4 was getting pretty worn and tired...as was my wallet for the fuel and maint.

Found an '07 Unlimited Sahara just off lease for a fair price at a stealership...so decided to retire the 'burb. The unlimited works out great for me, because it is a good transition from the suburban, and still practical for the kids in car seats.

Not sure how much trail time I could actually get, I am in South Florida...but will certainly get a lot of top-down time!

Looking forward to learning the ins and outs of the 'jeep thing'

Thanks for the welcomes!

I only got it last night, and am already planning out my next year's worth of salary for 'stuff I gotta have'

remember when?

your baby was in a "pre-mod" state?


Here's mine! Dec 15th in Boca Raton....just warmed up to 52 degrees...good enough for me...time to try crack her open!

should get back to the upper 70's this weekend...

I'll probably keep it pretty stock for a while, although I am thinking about 'casual summer wear' like a bikini top and tonneau for the cargo area...
