Ok I'm new to this

Alright Im new to this forum and I got my first jeep a couple of months ago. I would like to do a ton of shenanigans to but I dont know where to start. Whether with tools or parts or somewhere in between. I have a 2001 Wrangler 2.5L, I dont know the size of my tires exactly but they are not stock and the suspension is unknown to me as well. Ill get a couple of pics up when I get back home.

Any ideas where to start?

Maintenance... fluids. plugs. wires... that sort of thing. And then do a lot of reading. Don't buy anything until you understand what its going to do for you and what you really will end up using. Start with making it reliable and making it something that is going to protect any future investment into it.

Welcome to the jeep world. I was in your shoes 2 yrs ago. I purchased my 99 completely stock from the original owner in Olathe. You have to figure out whats important or exciting to you. And what your intentions are with the jeep. What ever decision you go with, do it cuz that's what you want. I started with a 2"budget boost. Was cheap and easy to do. Looks like its stock from the pic. So the internet is your playground. Love the color by the way. Wheels, tires, lift, armor, winch. The list goes on. One thing I've learned, it's an addiction. My list grows everyday, and with each of my boys having wranglers, it's just that much more fun. Good luck.

Reading the forums is a good start... Anything that you are wondering about just put in the search bar and see what comes out... You should be able to sort through the garbage and the good stuff... Let us know your intentions and I'm sure a few will chime in that have been there before and built good rigs..
