New Jeep Owner - Arlington, VA
Hello fellow Jeep enthusiasts!

I am a first time Jeep buyer as of this weekend. I purchased a used 2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara, and I'm looking forward to using it extensively for years to come.

I have a few questions, and would love to hear your opinions.

1. What are some easy-moderate terrain trails within driving distance of Washington DC to test out the Wrangler on? I'm afraid of going to a "rocks course" or anything too aggressive, but would like to take the Jeep out somewhere besides the traffic-laiden streets of DC.

2. The used sale did not include floormats. I am looking for high-quality all weather custom fit floormats in black, and would prefer they utilize the mat hooks currently on the Jeep. Any suggestions/recommendations?

3. The spare tire stored on the back is uncovered. I am looking to either get a custom printed tire cover or a black tire cover with the Jeep word logo on it. Can someone point me to a high quality tire cover?

4. What general things should I know about Jeep operation and maintenance? This vehicle was purchased mainly for enjoyment, as I do not drive to work or all that regularly. What care should I take that I might not know about (seeing as I've only driven sedans for my driving career)?

I look forward to learning and sharing experiences with you all. Thanks so much!
