Just Born

Wanted a Wrangler all of my adult life, and decided against it as being too impractical. Saw an all black 2010 JK Unlimited Sport, and couldn't sleep until I bought it. (see pic) Have a lot of mods planned, have no experience at all. Def want to do some off roading, need to be sure I'm set up for it before I start. Totally impressed with the breadth of knowledge on this forum. Have read a lot of posts, learned a lot already. Promise my first question will be a dumb one and a "duh" moment for me. I learn fast, and hopefully can be an asset here someday.

Welcome to the forum. First thing that you need to do is take it out and play in the dirt. I think that you will be surprised at what your stocker is capable of. This will also give you an idea of what changes you want to make. Just make sure that you don't do anything to void your warranty.

Thanks all, will do some off roading soon JD. I live in Chicago, so I have to find some trails nearby for now. Thanks for posting my jeep photo Distorted, haven't learned how yet. Thanks QT, JeepFrogger. See you all around!

Have to go to sleep soon, I work nights. I will work on this tonight, and see how it goes. I'll post my results, thanks for your help ... I almost got it, but I win no cigars for getting close.

Beautiful rig, Echo. I've been dreaming about one of those, myself.

One of these days....

But for now.....I gotta go research what an "airbox" is.
