Hey, I just recently joined the forum. I picked up my first real Jeep a couple of weeks ago - a 97 Wrangle Sport. I've had a 96 Cherokee and a 2000 Cherokee which I really enjoyed. The Wrangler is still about 90% stock with the only mod being aftermarket wheels and 30" BFG ATs (and the usual exhaust leak at the headers). Its a 4L and 5 speed which are difficult to find around here. I live in the Roanoke, VA area so there are some decent areas to use the Jeep. I also have a Subaru WRX and am active in several Subaru forums as well as managing/owning Flat4Va.com that is the Va chapter of a national Subaru group. I've learned alot and made some good friends the the Subaru forums, hope to do the same here.
