Newbie from Montana

Hi All!
A little intro in order. I've been a car enthusiast since high school in the early 70's. I've owned a number of cars, a few being; '65 &'66 mustangs, 66 GTO, 66 Nova, "65, 67, 69, 88 corvetts and my '95 ZR-1 recently sold, all sticks. No more cars.

Just traded in the Forester and Trailblazer on my first time Jeep, 2014 unlimited Sahara this past week. I have done all my mods on my previous cars, many extensive engine builds and suspension- everything but body work & paint. I do most of my own mechanics unless I need welding or other specific professional help.

So, I don't know Jeeps at all and need to gather advise by asking and spending time reading threads here. I liked the forum rule about "not necessary to do long searches, you can ask first". I am remodeling the home we just bought in the woods near Bigfork, MT and really need to get some things done on the new "JK". I just can't afford the time on the net right now so plan to ask outright until I get established and learn my way with Jeeps. Thanks so much.

I guess I'll go to the JK Tech forum to ask some intro questions rather then here, feel free to look me up there! Anyhow, I've been an avid forum user for all my vehicles since the beginning of the internet & have seen it all so although I read your rules etc. I don't believe you'll have any trouble from me...

Later, Robes-

2014 Unlimited Sahara (Model Code: JKJP74), 17K miles, 6 sp.Manual, 3 piece hardtop
