Although I was happy that my dad provided me a car when I turned 16 way back when, it was only a $300 Chevy Chevette.
YOur JK tank is more to the side with the muffler in the rear. Thanks to modern media, every car is a death trap that fails safety standards for one reason or another. Just be a good driver, obay the law, and have fun. Learn what it is capable of stock so you'll appreciate your future modifications that much more.
For those not old enough to know what a Chevette is.
Mine was red and had "Little Red Chevette" permanently cooked into the back glass from where shoe polish stayed on too long.
