Drove home from the dealer with the top off. My kids and I thought it was a good idea until we started driving and realized it was 50 degrees out. Needless to say we had the heater on and nobody said a word. Lol

Yanked out the complete factory audio system and replace with a new HU, amp, speakers, sub, wiring, etc. The first weekend of ownership was the dash parts all over the driveway. Tooka a few days. Was fun driving it with the left side of the dash out...

Drove it home from the dealer on a Sunday evening. Had to go to work the next day but busted out a full detail on it the next weekend. Bday and Father's Day coming, so hoping for a few accessories.

Drove it home from Lincoln. That's 3 hours away. It was a fun drive. Stayed on the rural highways, and just enjoyed this amazing ride.

Drove from dealership in the rain to the Publix for a sub, and got home for the Blackhawks game!

Drove home from the dealer and went online to look for parts to put on it.

livenlearn 06-08-2013 08:26 PM

Rolled it off the trailer and started tearing it apart.

Drove it off the lot and ran about a mile down the road. Parked it for a bit and just sat there smiling.

Then I took it home and surprised my boys. They lost their minds.

"is this the kind where the top comes off? Can we take it off now? Oh man I can't wait for you to take me to school tomorrow! "

It was a fun day.

Bought my 2013 black 2 dr JK on Saturday, 25 May. Drove it "towards" home but it kept pulling hard over towards a trail that I'd always wanted to explore. I pulled in the yard, jeep half covered in mud and told the wife I traded in the mustang...We both love the Jeep! :dance: It cleans up nicely too

Pulled in the garage and changed the ECO setting on the dash to instead say the radio station.

laollis 06-08-2013 08:50 PM

Got it home after an hours drive from the dealership, then went on line and ordered wheels, running boards, stub antenna, door guards, 1 pc grill insert, decals, and a pizza. LOL

Drove to daycare to pick up the kid early then drove home, parked it in the center of the driveway and waited for the wife to come home since it was a surprise for her.

Turned the rear-view mirror 180 to increase viability front and back, in the dealer's lot before I started it for the first time. One of the best free mods. :thumb:

tractorman 06-08-2013 09:05 PM

When I bought it the engine would not run. so I fixed the broken fuel pump wire!!

jkmohican 06-08-2013 09:13 PM

Drove by Lake St Clair for about 2 miles, lookout at the sun set and thinking about my future with the jeep.

Just kidding, I don't remember.

lolpetewtf 06-08-2013 09:18 PM

Made the deal, drove to the office where a coworker said "is that yours?" "Ya" I said. He was upset because I hardly work and have a new Jeep. heh.

MikeAJ87 06-08-2013 09:30 PM

Drove home from the dealership, picked up my gf, and left for vacation. Was a good way to break it in.

woansleftpeg 06-08-2013 09:34 PM

Spent the day finding excuses to drive places.

"I'm going out to get coffee honey, do you want anything?"

"We have coffee. I just made a pot."

"Yes, but I want Tim Hortons. From the branch on the other side of town."

PHILDABEAST 06-08-2013 09:43 PM

Drove it home, ~350 miles half of it or so 2 lane through the mountains

Osage Orange 06-08-2013 09:44 PM

Swapped out the factory 29s for five 33s on black rims, ran ProCal, & installed stubby antenna.

Blackened13 06-08-2013 09:48 PM

Picked it up with my son & went to a Iron Maiden concert

Muppin 06-08-2013 09:48 PM

It was my birthday I remember it well. We drove it home from the dealership and the whole way home I was so excited that I had finally got my dream car I would yell out " it's my birthday" and "I got my jeep!" pretty much to everyone I saw on the road that whole day.

Having lived in Toronto for 2 years, this comment is extremely hilarious...
An actual conversation with my brother-in-law in my car once went something like this...

Me~(Getting ready to pull into a Tim Hortons)I want a Tim's, you want anything?

Him~Don't go to THAT Timmy's, go to the other one.

Me~Which one, the one at the next light, or the one on the block two lights up by the QEW?

Him~No no no...The one next to the Harvey's over by the Rona.

Me~Oh! Is that one always has old fashioned TimBits?

Him~You know it, eh!

Started trying places to put my CB radio. Ended up putting it on the sound bar with double sided tape. I have the sunrider top and it fit up there with room to spare.
