First Time Jeep Owner From North Carolina
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hey folks! My name is Brandon... aka CraftMath. I'm a husband to a wonderful wife AND MOTHER (who begged me to get an automatic), a father of a 10 month old, a college math instructor..... and now... I'm the owner of a new Jeep Wrangler.
I've rode in many, but only drove a few, but that's obviously about to change. I traded in a 2006 FWD Mitsubishi Endeavor, which ran great up to this past Friday when I traded it in with 175k miles.
I went to WestGate CJD in Raleigh Friday morning with the intention to look at some used Wranglers, which I did, but left Friday afternoon in a 2016 Wrangler Unlimited Sport. It was a great experience honestly as I have experienced buyer's remorse before, but there isn't an ounce of that in me with this purchase. :) I will be returning there next Friday to pick up five BFG 285/70/17 tires and 5 Fuel Octanes. I did get these "on a whim", but the service department technician let me behind the counter, we talked things over for 15 or 20 minutes which led me to go with his recommendation.
The Jeep experience is NEW to me, but in only two days, I can tell the Jeep community is REAL. I talked to a guy at Best Buy for 15 minutes today about Jeeps after he noticed mine, only to realize he was parked 5 spots down. I exchanged waves with another Jeep owner this morning at a stoplight, and a neighbor who lives down the street, who is retired (I'm 30 btw), is ready to hit some sand with me. He has owned his Jeep for a few years... I think.

I've attached a picture of the guys and I at Westgate from yesterday afternoon. I'll follow up on this post next week when the new shoes arrive for my Jeep. Thanks for reading!

Thanks for the warm welcome guys... and gals perhaps. There's a lot to learn! Just requested my free copy of the Quadratec catalog. This couldn't come at a more perfect time.... just before Christmas! :)

WOW! Did you come all the way from Jersey to get the Jeep or were you here at the time?

I bought it right before we moved - purchase time was sort of forced by circumstance - it's easier to buy at your destination FWIW. :-)

Sure. Did you take advantage of the Westgate 4 Life program? They warrant the vehicle to 150k, on top of the guaranteed included warranty with the purchase of a new vehicle, but that's granted I perform every recommended service. I haven't read too much into it yet, but it may be a nice benefit unless there is something recommended every month (exaggeration). :)

I guess if you did, you are missing out on it since you're in Jersey now. None the less, I hope you have found great service in your new location.

Keep on Jeepin' on! OlllllllO
