FINALLY!!! I'm picking up my first Jeep tonight!

Well, the time has finally come...I'm going to pick up my 2006 Wrangler Unlimited after work tonight! This is the first Jeep I've ever owned and I can't wait to get it and start driving. I've lurked here long enough to know that if there's no pictures, then it didn't happen. I'll be sure to post them ASAP. So now, fellow Austin Jeep owners won't have to wonder who the crazy guy in the Chevy Impala is that keeps waving to them. I was just practicing for this day!

i think there are a few in your area (Austin)

Sweet...

I picked up my 06 unlimited well, just about 2 weeks ago now, i guess.

You're going to love it.
Don't get too upset when they don't wave back...mainly the jks' for some reason. Older Jeepers know better though, they always wave.

Get some pics up!!

We are having lots of dark, rainy weather here in Austin this week. That won't stop me from taking some pics, they just might not be very bright. It better stop raining soon, I have my kids birthday party Saturday and it's a 40% chance of rain. Just more opportunities to get it muddy!

Oh sorry, I already posted them in a new thread (still trying to figure out how this works) but I'll be happy to post them again. These are from my phone camera and it was getting dark. I'm loving it and the kids are loving it also! I have a couple of questions:

1. If I do a B.B. will I be able to use 33 inch tires? And if so, how will it effect my ride? Right now, it rides smoother than I expected for a Jeep and it is my daily driver (and I drive A LOT).

2. Has anyone done the headlight upgrade? I think they are called Xenon or H4 where you use a bulb instead of the big circle light? How good and how expensive? Thanks.
