Wanted one for a long time

Finally the stars aligned and I was able to obtain my first Jeep. After years of just getting by with whatever used vehicle I could find that met my needs we finally decided to buy something a little newer.

Looking online for something with 4WD, standard transmission, and the ability to tow I was greeted with a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport. Contacted the dealer and had relocated closer to me.

I had this goofy great big grin on my face when I first set eyes on it. My wife said she wished she had something to get that happy about.

Anyways - Going to go slow with the upgrades. Ordered grab bars, floor mats, seat covers, and rear seat tilt mod kit for now. Looking at a roof rack - maybe the Rugged Ridge Sherpa Roof Rack. Eventually a rooftop tent option so my wife and I can get back to outdoor adventures more comfortably.

In the mean time I work electronics and spend most of my free time as a Scoutmaster for the local troop.

Open to any suggestions and advice. I'd rather learn from others and their mistakes and successes instead of learning the hard way.

Well, I don't have anything to add to what's already been said so well.

I just wanted to stop by and say . . .
