First wrangler!

It's bought my first wrangler yesterday, also just learned how to use manual transmission. So far I'm having a blast learning everything. Any insider knowledge that a first timer may have? Here she is.

to the WF and congrats on the new Wrangler! One thing you'll learn real quick is that these things are easy to park! You'll also learn that 4WD isn't a cure for being in a bad situation. Just a heads up! Look for local Jeep clubs in your area and you're sure to find experts to answer any/all of your questions!

Past that, go forth, learn and enjoy!

Nice looking truck. Jeep fever is about to bite you. Most will advise replacing the body lift eventually. You'll learn a lot from reading and posting and can choose what fits your needs. Congrats!

Thanks man! I believe the body kit is quite new, I'll have it looked at for sure! And I think it's already bit me, I love it more each time I literally climb my way in!

I'd get rid of that body lift... 3" is nothing but a headache if it wasn't properly installed. My 01' had a 3" body lift on it and I took it off and cut them down to 1" and put it back on. Fixed a couple of my problems I was having
