New to Jeeps: my other ride does 150mph+...

Good evening all!

Checking in after having taken possession of my 2016 JK Sport all of, dear god 2 weeks ago tomorrow...

I intend on doing a fair bit of work to the vehicle since I was originally dead set on a rubicon but ran into two separate issues, one being I couldn't get a car loan to get one and these hold their value so well that used ones are not exactly bargains in Canada (not paying 30g for a car from 2008 with over 200,000km on it, who would rite?) I'll save the technical talk for the build threads and tech sections

A bit about me is that I actually just got my first car less than two years ago, 2wd ford ranger which I'd also done a fair bit too but unfortunately due to ice a ditch decided it wanted to fight my car and it won. Hence the buying a jeep.
I am a mechanical engineering technologist in training and work on autonomous robots for a living and previously did concept car design for a non fiat-chrysler company. (so while new to jeeps, I understand car physics.) My other car is a 2016 Furore Car Kit with a ZZR1400 bike engine paired with a Rotrex turbocharger, with plans to install a V10 F1/F3 spec engine if the class allows it. (car is still under construction and will debut in late 2017 if all goes to plan)

I have heard this is the best forum to talk shop about the car-that-seemingly-goes-anywhere and I cannot wait to be part of it!
