Proud new owner of a 2013 black JK Sport here! Many months of searching (and budgeting) finally paid off this past weekend as I decided to pull the trigger on a pretty basic JK. Found one on the lot that had just about what I wanted. Specs & options:

Manual transmission: 1st ride with a stick for me. I've read the million debates on auto v. stick, and it is personal preference, which is why I wanted my Jeep to be a manual. The learning process can be frustrating at times, considering I live in the city of PGH and in a very hilly area, but it sure is a blast to drive!

23S package
Power Convenience Group
Anti-Spin Differential Rear Lock

Can't thank this forum enough on making it easy to pick out what I would want in my 1st Jeep. Great tool we have here.:thumb:

I noticed I bought my Jeep just in time for "Santa" to possibly bring me some smaller mods :) (grill inserts, decals, stubby antenna, new shifter knob, etc.). I also like the look of the RC Hybrid Stubby Bumper (once the wallet rebounds).

Few pictures below...hopefully they work. Thanks again!

Thanks all!

Congrats! Any mods planned? They're addictive!
I do like the look of Stubby Bumpers so that is something on the list. As of now, it's my DD, so I'm not looking at bigger tires at the moment, but a leveling kit is another addition I've been eyeing up.

I have noticed the mod list quietly, and quickly, grows.

1 point of advice: If you level or lift, get bigger tires...or it'll just look goofy.

Yay! Another Pittsburgh Jeeper! Good choice going with the manual, that's what I did. Most importantly, enjoy it!

Congrats on the new ride. Maybe I'll see you around! Love my new manual JKUR. Got the stubby antenna & door sill guards so far and have a good long list of other things I want. You will get addicted. My list that stared out with small things now suddenly has bumpers and wheels on it!

zolynski, any reception issues with the stubby antenna? Heard some do, some don't.

Just a slight loss for me, but I'm all satellite at this point...
