New JKU in North Texas

Hi all, I recently got my first Jeep, '12 JKU.

I have wheeled Bronco's and pickups when I was younger but until 2 years ago I had not been off road in a long time.

2 years ago I introduced my wife to offloading by renting a JK in Moab and spending a day on trails. She loved it and was always talking about the trip.

So naturally when she got pregnant (due June 21) and we needed a new car I convinced her to get the most practical vehicle, a JKU. The hardest choice was Crush or Gecko.

Congrats on your baby!! And the new Jeep.

From another newbie to wrangler forum, welcome!

Funny thing is my wife and I are getting another JK for the same reason. Cant beat it for a family vehicle.

Hey man congrats on both of the new additions.

I also got my jeep shortly (within 2 months) after having a little girl. My wife (and everyone else) is calling it a mid-life crisis haha.
