Hey Everyone,

I'm not a Jeep owner yet, but will be soon. Because of circumstances in our family (3 kids, mother, nanny) we need a 3rd vehicle and I've decided to go with a Jeep Wrangler for myself.

Browsing the classifieds for a used Sahara or Rubicon, but no luck yet. There are apparently not as many Jeep owners in the Northeast as in the South and Midwest. I'm sure once I get my hands on a Wrangler I'll be here frequently with lot's of questions.

Welcome to the site. Best of luck in your search, it took me a while. It is summer and they sell fast. You need to check daily and be ready to move when you find one you like.

Does the wife know you are getting a Jeep? Does she realize the amount of money and time you will be spending on the Jeep. I tell you it is worth it! Lets us know when you get it.

Hey SpeedJunkie. You are right! I have a small pile of classified printouts with SOLD written across them cause they do sell fast. I've been looking for about a 2 weeks already.

Yes she does know. And I'm sure I'll spend no less on modifying the Jeep than I did on the BMW I had to give up (for a Sienna minivan) when we realized we were having twins. lol

Thumbs up Jeepless guy!

New to the forum as well!

Note to the Jeepless guy. You'll have a great time with your jeep I have a 2005 RME (Rockie Mountain Edition) and I love it. This is my second jeep I have owned. My last one was a 79 CJ5 Renagade.

I pull a 8 person popup camper with my 05. I just put a air lift system on my jeep to help with ride when pulling the camper and what a differance.

I am working on a bit of a wobble in the front end but it may be from a bit of a lift that I am getting from the airbags.
