My first jeep, nervous! lol

Hello,
I'm Kim, I just bought my first jeep.
2003 jeep wrangler/tj sahara edition.
I'm kinda nervous cause it's my first standard vehicle i've ever had too lol. A double Whammy!
I'm from Canada so i'm also a bit nervous of driving this standard jeep in the snow this winter, (like holy crap what have I gotten myself into???!!!) loll
Well, that's about it for now,

Don't worry about the shifting. Before long it will become so natural you won't even notice.

In the mean time . . .

Welcome to the forum. You'll be fine. It becomes second nature. And jeeps are great in the snow

Welcome to the Forum Kim

I can't think of a better vehicle to handle snow driving. Next winter (that's like 2 weeks away right)jk, you'll be wondering why you didn't buy a Jeep sooner.

Thanks again, it's nice to see positive feedback about the snow driving, I keep getting negative feedback about that since even before I bought it!

Anybody who gives you negative feedback about a Jeep has never owned one. Jeeps are great on all types of terrain. I have seen them walk around every other type of "badass" offroad rig in all situations. Just practice and laugh at everyone else when you drive by them while they are stuck. Oh yeah, don't forget to give them the patented Jeep Hater Wave --->
