Ok, so I am so new to Jeeps and anything mechanical, it is ridiculous. I work in an office all day and all my life. Growing up, when I asked my dad how to do something, he would always say "look someone up in the yellow pages." sorry younger generations, we did not always have the internet!!:facepalm:
I am starting fresh, want to learn about my '03 Jeep. Looking for a book or where to start to begin from the beginning. I obviously can't go and work in a shop, but want to learn how it works and how to keep it running.
Any books that helped or did you just fix problems as the showed up.

I think that just being a part of this forum and browsing around as mush as most of us do will fill your brain with great amounts of Jeep knowledge and ideas.

Join a 4x4 club locally. They will guide you straight grasshopper.
+1 and it just so happens that the Maryland Jeep Club (MJC) is a great group of guys and gals. If you live in the right place, they have monthly meetings and do a lot of wheeling at RC. Annapolis, Fredrick, and Westminster usually have the best turnouts. I attend the Westminster meets every second Tuesday. It's nice to talk with fellow Jeepers while eating good food and drinking good beer.

If you are new to wheeling, they do an official ride where new wheelers are guided through the trails and learn the basics.

thx everyone. doing lots of surfing via google and this forum. Found the Service manuals on ebay, but they were going for over 135$ for those.
I am finding lots of good stuff out here. Hope everyone is safe on the East Coast due to this upcoming storm!!
