Finally joined the club!!

Well, I'm officially a TJ owner! Picked up a 97 SE 2.5, 5spd yesterday! It's dark green, spice soft top, and the previous owner put some black 15" steelies and 30x9.5" BFG All Terrains on it. I LOVE it! Anyway, after owning it for 24hrs now, I thought I would share what I have learned as a first time Jeep owner.

1) Half doors are the only way to go. Love em.

2) The Jeep wave is rampant around here, and I love it. I've gotten 6 already.

3) The 2.5 is surprisingly adequate compared to what I was expecting!

4) That being said, 5th gear is pretty much useless.

5) I can't wait to lift it!

Enjoy, and good wheeling.
I was a Patriot long before it became fashionable to be one. When you need it, and don't have it, you sing a different tune.
