So, I've owned my Wrangler for several years now, and it's not my first one. I guess no one will every replace my first, but I really like the one I've got now. It's an 09 4D with, don't hate, 2WD. It's my daily driver and, if my past lives are any indication, not having 4WD capability has really prolonged the life of the ride.
Why "shame on me?" Because I'm just now joining up to ask questions and research Jeep stuff! I imagine it's pretty common that when someone starts having problems, they run to the forums. I've been reading here and JKO for a bit now and it seems like my issues are about par for the course. Heater core got plugged up and now it's acting funny. And that damned gascap/CEL, eh? Still reading about those, so I won't hash it out, although I'm going to have to start a thread with a question on tuners - I haven't found the answer yet.
Anyway, about me. I'm living just north of Lake Pontchartrain, in the greater New Orleans area. Been here my whole life, in various little places around the city. I got my first Wrangler back in 87, it was a beautiful brown and light brown Laredo hard top. I'd love to have that puppy today. My current ride was picked up as a demo from a local dealer, and it's been terrific.
My wife and I love to do pirate events and reenactments, along with renaissance festivals, cosplay, camping, and we recently bought a 2014 Harley Davidson. Been riding that a lot!
I've been enjoying reading the posts here, hope to get to participate soon.
