New To this site

Hi All. Just following the suggestion that I should start a thread here. I have been looking on this site for tips and info and decided I should just join! I have a 2012 JK Sport and my wife has a 2013 JKU sport. We love them! This is her first Wrangler. We had a 2006 and then a 2008 Liberty and really liked them but the Wranglers are going to be a better time!!!

We just had about a foot of snow here in north-east PA and the JK walked right through it (all stock - 16" steel with the Good Year Wranglers).

So far I put a set of Smitybuilt side steps on and ordered a trailer hitch and harness. Next up is some 32" tires. Then, a bumper with winch. A couple of years down the road I am going to do a 2.5" lift with new rims and 33" tires and some half doors. Would like to get a hard top someday as well...I should have just saved up and got a decked out Rubi but I like the sport so far. It has the 3.21 gears but I don't see this as an issue...at least now with the stock tires.

This is my second Wrangler. I bought one brand new (my first NEW car) back in 1997. It was nice as it was the first year with the new coil springs and updated dash and softtop. It had half doors with soft/zipper windows (loved them! I want a set for my 2012) and a 4 cylinder motor. No passing power at all but put it in 4LOW and it could get the job done!

I also had a 77 bronco...it was a beater but ran good. I wanted to restore it but had no $$ so I sold it. I would like to get another one someday...the thing was a tank!

Happy New Year!!
