Talking Wow - Who Would've Known...

My Jeep is only a week old and I had no idea it would be so much fun to own one. I bought a surf blue 2-door Wrangler Sport last Wednesday and I'm on pace to put about 20,000 miles on it in the first year!

Right now it's mainly a get-to-work vehicle (replacing my Saturn which died on a road trip a couple of weeks ago), but I bought it with the intention of taking it off of the pavement on a regular and frequent basis.

Anyway, happy to be part of the obsession...

not to burst your bubble because jeeps are fun, but you probably shouldn't take it off road as long as it is serving as your primary transportation. parts break, it's a fact of life. i myself view my wrangler as a strictly leisure vehicle, i would not have it as a daily driver. i know there are a lot of members here who do use their wranglers as daily drivers but i would not risk breaking it if it were my only source of transportation

Welcome to the forum. My jeep is my DD and my trail ride. That is what Jeeps are made for. Take it out and play. You will be surprised at what your stock Jeep can do.

They climb.
They crawl.
They cruise.
They help some relax.
They make others envious.
They make everybody smile.

But they DONT float. Dont be a Chadwick.

Welcome aboard

Welcome to the forum. Use it as you want, it is not some delicate little thing. It is made to use on the road and off of the road when ever you want.
