Nashville local, New to the forums, Looking for my first jeep!
TNWoodsman here from the Nashville, TN area. I am looking to buy my first jeep when I find the one that I like with the options that I want.
I am excited to be a Jeep owner. I am looking for a 2012 or 2013 wrangler unlimited in True Blue color Freedom Edition.
Must have options are: manual tranny, 3.73 gears, anti slip rear end, hard top, heated seats optional (i want my cake and icecream!)

I have had no luck finding this vehicle with those options. I will order if I must. The true blue seems to be a rare color and with manual tranny even rarer.

Tentative plans: 3.5" lift, change the front and rear drive shafts to handle the lift...I want 35" tires but I want to retain the stock 7.5 inch rims. I know this is possible after reading the sticky on this forum, but it requires a lift and wheel spacers and I don't want to use wheel spacers. I read mixed reviews about them and I don't want to take the chance of failure.
I posed questions in the wheel and tire sticky regarding running 35" tires without spacers if I change out the width of the rim. i am hoping for some feedback. Thanks for all the great info!

Now a proud first time Jeep owner. It was the most 10 hours of fun I have had in a vehicle (driving home to Nashville from Washington DC area).

Ended up with 2013 JKSU. True Blue. options: black hard top, 3.73 gears, anti slip rear end, alpine system, manual tranny, side airbags, auto climate control. I worked a deal with the dealership and installed aftermarket heated seats. I'm impressed with them.

Wave when you see me!
