Jeep newb

So my wife has been wanting a Jeep since forever. I finally broke down and bought her a 2006 Wrangler X with 55k miles for Christmas. She fell in love with it until she saw it was a stick. She is learning though, she should be on the road next week. She can drive around a parking lot fine right now. It looks like it has the 2.25 budget boost with 31x10 BF Goodrich All Terrains. I know that the Jeep has the Dana 35C rear end and the 30 front, but I was amazed at how capable the Jeep is. If anyone reads this from North Georgia and is familiar with Sweetwater trail, that is where we broke it in. I only took a couple of bypasses, and only got stuck once. Apparently not enough tire as the rear pumpkin dug in. I really couldn't believe what I was making a 16k vehicle do. I could only imagine if this thing had a locker rear or even a posi. Anyway, I just wanted to say hello, I have been lurking for a week and a half and should introduce myself. Yes I know, thread is useless without pics, just don't have any on my photobucket account yet.

Thanks for the welcome. Found it difficult at first to remember to wave at fellow Jeepers going down the road.
