Just bought a TJ. New to forum.

Hello everyone. I just picked up my first Wrangler last night. It's a 98 Sahara Edition. Figured I'd sign up for the site since I'm pretty new to, well... everything Jeeps, mechanic work in general, and driving a 5 speed.

She's got 169k on her, and everything seems to be running great. 4 inch Rough Country lift and 33" tires. Only issue is some frame rust that I'm guessing will need to be patched up (hopefully not completely replaced), but like I said, I'm pretty new at all of this. I grabbed her for $3500 off Craigslist.

As far as me personally: My name is Adam, I'm 24 and I live in southern NJ. I'm hoping the forum will help me learn the ins and outs of the Jeep overtime while I'm out there breaking stuff and needing to replace it.

Right outside Atlantic City. Can't take her off road just yet. I gotta make sure the frame is alright first. Plus I need a bit more practice on road with the 5 speed. I've literally only driven them 3 times lol. It's gonna take a little getting used to.

Welcome! Have a great time. Look for a off road class. It will save you time and money. Good luck.
