Dont wait to live to see 38 years old before you regret not buying one sooner. Buy one NOW.... dont wait.... you have no idea what you're missing!
Also... know this: there is the Camaro, Mustang, Caddy STS, Mini Cooper, Dodge Ram with Cummins Turbo Diesel.... Wrangler is a whole different kind of cool!!!
|08-28-2009 08:28 PM|
That sounds almost logical. Anyone go along with that or do it also?

|2000sport||I always keep a tow strap, ratchet set, flashlight, and hex keys in the jeep at all times.... and I have used them all on several occasions. Also, make sure you have a very good bracket holding down your battery. I bought one from Advanced and it snapped on the first bump i took off road.|

|kdukes4||If you live in anywhere around humidity and terrible winters of snow and ice, where they dump the salt on the roads, beware of quick rusting! espicially on your frame, their notorious for rusting from the inside out! I know not everyone has this option, but if you have an air compressor, take used oil and throw it in a container, and with an adaptor at the end of the air hose,(i can't remember what its called but there's a nipple to fit a hose around it which will suck fluid into the adapter and then spray it) you can use that to get all of the inside covered with the oil. drive it down a dirt road to get some dust in there, and do it before the winters and in the spring!|

|Ej132||Recently upgraded my sound system too. Jvc hd head unit, replace in dash and sound bar speakers and added 8 inch sub. Wasn't gonna do sub at first but after hearing in the store with and without the sub it was night and day difference. I thought they were just for rap but makes country sound a lot better. Also added 640 watt amp|

Working on the jeep is never as easy or straightforward as it should be. Be sure to allot plenty of time, or have a spare vehicle.
Something about years of salt, water, and mud makes metal parts not too excited to be separated.

don't forget to upgrade the brakes along with the suspension/tires/gears. most overlooked aspect of a jeep...but will quickly remind you during a panic stop.
my two cents

The absolute best thing you can add to your Jeep is gasoline. Go drive it.
Then let's talk about lift kits.
Oh, except for a new Supertop. That's the best thing. I forgot about that.

|lost1||Jeeps are adictive, you're OK if you have never had one, but you will always "have to have" one. There is nothing worse than listening some poor sucker say "yeah I uesd to have a jeep and".|

|08-23-2009 02:57 PM|
|JDsDream||Unless you have a hard top, don't leave anything of value in it and don't lock it. Thieves haven't figured out how to use a zipper, they would rather cut your top or windows.|

|catITguy||an addition to the gas mileage comment: bolt ons/performance mods are absolutely positively never going to pay for themselves with gas savings.|

|solo97tj||it's a jeep not a race car, it's a rough ride ahead, when life gets tough use the short shifter!|
