I'm New Here...

not sure if there's an 'I'm new here' section of the forum, so forgive me if I stuck this in the wrong place.

Just joined and looking forward to wasting a lot of time here as I do on about 10 other car forums.

About me:

- based in the Chicago burbs and a true car nut
- married 40 year old father of 3 crazy a$$ boys
- love long walks on the beach and romantic comedies....

Seriously though, I'm a car nut and just ordered a '12 JKU Sahara in Bright White - pretty much loaded up. I've never gone off roading, but looking to have fun. I probably don't fit the typical Jeep hardcore dude mojo, but my buddy has a fully tricked out CJ, so I've got him to run with for that. I went the Sahara route because I need the creature comforts - in sales and in the car/on the phone a ton. I have 'fun' cars and I want to have the same level of fun in my daily that I do in my fun cars. I love the idea of a 4 door convertible for my kids. I'm going the JKU after driving a '09 BMX X5 for the last 2.5 years so something completely different!

My fun cars are:

- 2005 Lotus Elise Supercharged - basically a tiny fun go kart with a body kit. An absolute blast for street and track (HPDE and Autocross)

- 1969 Leyland Mini Moke - google them! It's in the classic vintage Mini Cooper family. Basically, a beach buggy version of a Mini. In the process of restoring it. Pure fun! My wife said 'that thing looks like a Jeep raped a golf cart'. I'll use the JKU to flat tow this to and from various events/shows and our summer home.

Gotta start thinking about various street mods - spider shade, slush mats and painting/pcoating my wheels in Mineral Grey.

Hopefully this all passes the Jeep Owner's sniff test!!

Great site and looking forward to learning a lot.

It's not wasted time, it's furthering your education in highly selective areas
At least I hope so. Otherwise I've wasted TONS of time, lol!

Welcome. And it's not waisting time, it researching. You call it that and my wife is going to be more suspicious of what I'm doing in my iPhone.
