rogueleader I bought my first Jeep through the AAFES program while I was at Ubon, Thailand. It was a red CJ-5 Renegade and was waiting at the nearest Jeep dealer when I got home. The only problem with it at the time was the winter was cold and the rag top didn't help keep me warm. I was sent to the upper peninsula of Michigan and temps got down below zero several times. Still was a lot of fun to drive. With the new Jeep, it's the 100 -116+ temps that get me. Black in the desert is HOT.
I want to add my thanks for your service to this great country. Get home safe.

Modify for function first and looks second.

Research the hell out of all major mods.

Really look into how you plan to use your Jeep and do major mods (tires/suspension) one time, don't try to stair step up from smaller to bigger. I learned this the hard way. My first round of mods included 33" tires and a 2" lift. Ended up ditching the whole setup for 37's and 4.5" lift. Unfortunately I didn't (and couldn't) get jack (compared to what I spent) out of the 33's and 2" so I lost money on that deal.
I'll be okay not modding for a while. Mostly I'll be too pumped to be driving a regular vehicle again, that it won't be a thought in my mind for a while But really, I plan on keeping this Jeep for the long haul, and driving it until it just falls apart, so I'll be okay not going all out, and pacing myself. I've waited almost 15 years finally get myself this Jeep, so taking my time isn't an issue. It'll make the transformation that much more enjoyable.

The first major mod, way down the road, will probably be something like a 2"-2.5" lift with 35's. It'll be a DD, and I don't need anything crazy to make it mine. I'm good at doing a whole lot with a whole little.

Lil Red JK As much as you are thankful for this forum, I can't begin to explain the appreciation I have for you. Thank you for your service. I am part of an organization called Operation Troop Appreciation. If you are looking for something to look up, please take the time to visit the website, Operation Troop Appreciation: Helping Our Deployed Troops - Home. we have supplied many troops with "goodie boxes". there is a section on the website to request supplies also. I hope you return safely and soon!


Oh, welcome to the madness and congrats on your purchase!

Rtone1583 Congrats on the new Jeep!

A little celebration dance for you.

I'm currently in the Dubai time zone so I know the post and wait game gets frustrating.

Don't forget to check out the regional forums at the bottom of the front page http://www.wranglerforum.com/ . Always a good source for information at your home station.

Just wanted to thank you all quickly!

Hi all! I've been lurking these forums for a couple of months. The first vehicle I ever dreamed about owning was a Wrangler, one was nearly the first one that I bought (18k for a 9 year old Wrangler was a bit out of my price range at 16 years old )

Anyway, I recently ordered a brand new 2014 Sport S through a military buying program, and the wait is absolutely excruciating, both to get the Jeep, and for when it's time to come back stateside! Two of my closest friends both own a Wrangler (one is stationed in Washington state and will be home around the same time I am, and one is a corrections office in NJ), so us three are anxiously waiting the time when we can wheel together.

But anyway, I just wanted to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of you who post on the forums. The highlight of my day, most days, is coming here and seeing the pictures and conversations that you all have about your Wranglers, and it makes my wait just a little bit more bearable.

PS, a couple more night owls would be much appreciated. With the time difference, my evenings are boring cause not many people are here posting. Fix that!

Haha, but yeah. Thank you all!
