Hey y'all from southeast Ohio.

Hey guys and gals. I'm getting my first jeep on march 10th. I'm buying it from my aunt who lives in Texas and is the second owner of the jeep. I'm flying down there and driving it all the way back to Ohio. Should be a good trip to get to know the jeep. It's a 1998 Wrangler SE 5 speed. It only has 72,000 miles and has lived in Texas. I'm new to jeeps and its gonna be my DD. I've done a lot of work to my truck (1997 Silverado). I'm not mechanically stupid as I rebuilt my engine with my dad but will probly need some help figure out the jeep. Well that's about it. Any tips or tricks much appreciated. Thanks a lot!!!

Hey Helmsy, Welcome to the WF, you will find this to be an informative and entertaining place for sure. The wife and I are heading down to Lazy Lane cabins around Athens for our anniversary next month. Beautiful country down there.

Ok my aunt sent me some picks

I know the milk jugs are coming off and the flares need painted. Other than that I think it looks pretty good.
