New to Wranglers and WranglerForum, but not to vehicles!

Hello everyone. Doug here. Just bought my first Wrangler - a 1998 Sport with 3.73 gears and a 5-speed, 4.0 liter. I've owned a few XJs and I think 18 other vehicles in my 18 years driving and have always wanted a Wrangler, but couldn't justify it to myself. Well, the time has come. I found a <150000 mile 4.0 5-speed for sale and couldn't turn it down. It needs work cosmetically but the tub, frame and mechanics are all solid.

I worked for a decade as a mechanic and am happy to offer unsolicited advice to everyone who will listen (just kidding). See you on the boards!
