New Member from San Diego!

Hello everyone!

I first fell in love with wranglers when I was a little kid watching Jurassic Park and being exposed to the surf community, watching many Jeeps cruise along the coast of San Diego searching for waves. As I'm much older, I realized I wanted to keep my own wrangler for as long as possible, maybe even pass it down to future generations of my family. It's a classic!

I recently owned a used JK 2012 sport for 3 years, but have decided a few days ago to trade it in for a new JKR 2017. First of all, buying a new vehicle is probably the worst idea financially...my wallet is definitely shy right now. But with a goal to keep a wrangler for life and knowing I'm the only owner...brings a lot of peace in my mind, for me anyway (My used 2012 sport was pretty banged up inside and out from the previous owner).

So far I haven't done much besides remove the backseat, placed some grab handles, a Rugged Ridge rear cargo liner, wheel locks, and a black BestTop spare tire cover. I do plan on building this jeep for trails and overland trips, not so much for crawling.

I'd love to join any SoCal Wrangler meets! Haven't been to one yet. Is it alright if a newb shows up in a stock JKR?
