Greetings From Southern Connecticut

Hello to All!

I've been a lurker for some time. Gather data and learning what I like about Wrangler mods. Thank you to all for taking time to post "how to's".

Last year (2017), I bought a 2013 JK Sahara. Everyone who asks how I like it, I answer: "It's the most impractical vehicle I've ever owned. I love it"

I bought it from a dealer. It was not what I was looking for. I wanted a more basic model. Wife, however preferred the hard top, leather (heated) seats and all the other niceties. It only had 12,500 miles and whoever owned it put some money into mods as well Magnaflow exhaust, Replaced stock lights with KC HID Headlights and bumper lights, PIAA bumper mounted lights, Weather guard hood protector, Mopar steps.
So although not exactly what I wanted I got a lot, and truth be told, the heated seats are pretty nice in the winter.

I added so far a Teraflex leveling kit and 1.5" spacers in preparation of upsizing the tires (stock Bridgestone Desert Duelers bleh).

Have a winch plate I got used from CL awaiting a winch, and an uninstalled roof rack I got a great deal on also from CL.

Thanks again to all!

Welcome from Pennsylvania!
If it leaks, squeaks, growls, grinds, chips, sparks, flakes, rusts, breaks you will 99.9% of the time find your solution searching the old threads and if you don’t, there are many here that can likely help you figure it out.
