I bought my first Jeep just over a week ago, and I love this ride (no mention of the word car, even though I hate kittens;)). I have never seen or used this site until after I bought it. But man oh man...has it been helpful.
Anyway, this is probably going to be a boring thread, but I plan on updating when I do things to it and have some fun it.
She is a 2013 Sahara Unlimited, 6spd manual, came with hard top, upgraded wheels, cloth. I had to hunt her down a few hours away but worth it. I am a sales manager at a Nissan store and my owner happens to have a large C-D-J store too...so I got the hookup! Here is her first pic, the day I picked her up.

Took the hard top off for the first time, built a dolly / stand for it. Turned out perfectly! Thanks to the forums and pics on here! Stored it away for awhile.

Got the windows tinted and yesterday, after a few days of toplessness, I installed the TrekTop NX. Not too hard either. It was plenty hot enough to allow for the stretching.
Also took the Sahara stickers off and added one of my own. From americanmethod.com. I wanted something Captain America, something don't tread on me, and something with a flag...this is all rolled into one!

Nice, I just got a Sahara 6 speed too. It happened to be at the dealer a couple miles down the road with most of what I wanted. I got lucky. I would have liked a tow hitch and remote start but I suspect I can add those. Good luck with it.

First Attemp at Plasti-Dippin

Not so good. Second try better. But I have a slight ocd problem, so i ripped that one off too. Finally, third try I got it right. Oh and I tried the home made grill mesh mod. Meh...it held for a few days.

Did a little camping excursion here in Tennessee! With my two best friends! The dog and the wife!

Now here is a learning experience for plasti dip. One night after a few (10 or 12 or ??) I noticed a small spot, inside the Jeep logo on the grill, that the plastidip missed. So, I say to myself, meh...just a quick spray and can fix it. Nope.
:atomic:

So...peeled it off and went another direction. Bedliner. Said it was idiot proof to spray, so I sanded the grill down...and I must say, I like it better than plastidip.

Also installed clear turn signals and marker lamps.
