1st time jeep owner from SE Idaho
Just got here but I came as quick as I could. My wife just bought me a 2004 Wrangler. I test drove it and then had to leave town for two weeks but apparently, she likes it 'cause she's driving it instead of her Accord.

I'm new to the Jeep world but look forward to finding my way. Ran across this site looking for some basic information about Jeeps. I'd post a picture but since it's at home and I'm not... it'll have to wait until Sunday.

Basically, it's black with grey flares, hard top and has a badge on it (trail ready). At this point, I'm looking to find out what the badge really means....

Hope all is well for everyone else. I'm looking forward to Sunday when I get to introduce myself to my Jeep.

2004 Jeep Wrangler (4.0)
1990 Ford Bronco XLT (302) (4-sale)
1977 GMC Sierra Grande (350)

Hello and welcome to WF. There are few things more fun than finding out what your jeep can do. :D

Welcome to WF!

Welcome! The badge says Trail Rated. That just means that a Jeep 4x4 is designed to perform in five categories of off-road conditions: traction, ground clearance, maneuverability, articulation, and water fording.

In other words, you didn't buy a grocery getter. That thing is made to go offroad. Enjoy it!

So don't go to the grocery store in your jeep unless you cover up that trail rated emblem.

I'm afraid she may want it over her Honda. With 4 rigs already, the Bronco has to go. It's been a good rig but it was time for something newer.

My brother has an '04 Wrangler and sold me on getting a Jeep. He wonders why it took him so long to figure it out and get a Jeep..... I have a feeling I'll be in the same boat..... once I get to drive it again.

Thanks for the welcomes and I'll catch everyone around the board later.

Here's some pictures of my '04.... was snowing today so it's wet some.
