Talking New to WF and to 2006 LJ

Hey, everyone!

I've been on WF for about a week, ever since test driving a very gently used 2006 LJ. Well, it's been purchased (longest one-week wait ever) with right around 12,500 miles. I'm not sure why someone would want to part with such a thing after only 10 years...but my wife and I plan on using this like it's our job.

First purchases have been an OPDA, a transmission cooler (it's an auto), and mirror relocation brackets - all yet to be installed. We did a good "first weekend" drive today - soft top down - and I think my cheeks are a bit sore from grinning so much. What an enjoyable vehicle to drive. I missed a few waves from some locals doing the same. I promise I'll learn to be better about the return wave! haha

I'm looking forward to this jeep serving as a reliable vehicle from which to learn about vehicle maintenance and mechanical functions. It sounds like there are more than a few brains to "tap" on this forum. I look forward to the learning and camaraderie.

So, again, "hello" everyone
