First jeep, new member

Hello all! I am a very excited first time wrangler owner. I have been envious of other jeepers and the lifestyle for a while now. Last weekend, I got a white '13 JK 2-door soft top automatic with the fiancée. This is not only my first Jeep, but also my first new car. I have always driven the family car or used car I bought. Needless to say, I am absolutely pumped.

I have just finished graduate school and will be starting my professional career in Hackensack, NJ (northeast of state). Looking forward to getting involved with the local NJ forum.

We are big time beach goers and plan on driving onto the beach as soon and as often as possible. Her dad has an FJ and he's totally jealous !

When I got the Jeep I quickly developed a lot of questions which led me to the discovery of this forum. I am thoroughly pleased with the ability to search past threads about my interests. I have used this website to learn about the best way to drive on sand as well as beach appropriate accessories. I have purchased the clover window roll as well as the spiderweb shade to make putting the top down overall more pleasant, enjoyable, and organized.

In general, I would like to say that from my observation so far of many threads this is not only a very well established community, but also very respectful, constructive, and most of all fun!

Attached pic of me on DAY 1 of Jeep ownership. (Apologies for the FJ in the background ) More pics to follow with this ones first journey to the beach.
