New Guy, New(Used) Jeep.

Hey all, been lurking these forums for a bit, decided it's now the right time to join up.

Recently purchased a 2008 Wrangler Sahara, 19k on the meter. Having a blast, but still on the high from finally getting one. Bone stock right now, and going to stay that way for at least the year. Still getting used to the shifting, it's certainly not like the M3 I used to own, but I'm getting it.

I'm holed up in SE MI, but I've been out around the state seeing Wranglers going this way and that, finally want to get in on that fun. Newbie note: I've never been wheelin', as it were, so I'm probably going to ask a lot of questions on how to handle a vehicle off-road. Also, if there's a class or some kind of instruction available, I'm looking for that too. Not going to get myself stuck without at least knowing something.

Welcome to the forum.

For offroad knowledge...find a local club or group and go out with them. Best classes you can get. Plus you never want to wheel alone.
