Sort of, kinda retired....mostly
I'm more of a lurker than a poster, but am really enjoying this forum, so...

I've been a Jeep fan all my life, mostly due to the "crazy uncle" who helped raised me and always had radically modded Jeeps that he drove me around in, but I never got around to owning one. Fast forward ~50 years. Kids grown and gone, mostly retired, having Covid cabin fever, etc. I have several close friends who are avid Jeepers, we have lots of ORV parks in the state (WA), and I started thinking it would be good to have something that I could tow behind a MH. Plus, my dad just passed and wanted me to do something "cool" with the rest of my life.

Hello 2-door JLRU in Sage Green. Loving it so far. Planning a trip to the local ORV after a bumper/winch upgrade, then some MH adventures with it in tow.

I'm glad to find an online community to learn from. I probably won't post much, but thanks to all of you who share your knowledge and experience.

Love that Sarge Green!

I was back and forth between that and the Granite on mine.

2018 JL Wrangler 2 door sport
Hello!
I stumbled across this forum a week or so ago & enjoying the posts, pics & info. I’ve got an ‘18 JL 2-door sport which is the first vehicle I bought for myself that I didn’t consider anyone but me. (I’m a plumber so I’ve always bought trucks & panelvans.).. It’s by far my favorite vehicle I’ve ever had👍🏼 I’ve gone wheeling 30 or so times & looking forward to more trips👊🏽

67 CJ5
Hello. I am trying to get back on the trails after a long absence and have been working on my Jeep (67 CJ5) to get it operational again. I was planning on buying a 2021 Bronco (flame suit on) as a daily driver and light trail rig and using my Jeep for serious wheeling. I initially figured the Bronco would be better for daily use because of the IFS and more standard features. However, I am getting tired of the Bronco delays and started thinking about a JLU. Also, it’s taking longer to get my Jeep ready than I expected and I’m looking at a transmission rebuild and probably a complete brake system replacement, so I figured maybe I’d take advantage of the deals on new Jeeps. I don’t really need a Rubi, but might get swayed by the high awesome factor. Anyway, I dropped by here to try to learn about JLs before I really get serious about buying. It’s a really good forum and I look forward to many discussions.

Greetings,
Bought my first Jeep in 1977. It was a new CJ7. Next one was a 2017 JK. Didn’t keep the JK very long as we were still new to our retirement home and trying to figure out what vehicles fit into our lifestyle. Now we have it figured out and I plan to order a JL soon. It won’t see much duty off road. I just think they are fun, easy to park and maneuver, and look cool as heck.
We live in East TN and unfortunately the dealers around me just laughed at my offers so it looks like we will be buying from a dealer near Atlanta.
BTY, the 77 CJ7 was a real piece of crap, lol. I kept it 3 years and had tons of issues with it. The JK was great, not one defect in 1.5 years.

2019 JL two door Rubicon
New(er) here, been lurking around for ages but decided I should join in on the conversation as I've found tons of useful information here. I thought hopefully I'll be able to give back one way or another an help someone else out along the way. 2019 JLR is me.

Bought this a little over a year ago, and its been a non-stop wallet emptying pit of fun since. Still have quite a bit left that I want to do with it. But incase you're curious, here is what's been done so far.

2.5" Terraflex lift: springs, shocks, and front lower arms
37" Maxxis RXR: friggin amazing, been to Moab on these baddies
17" Fuel Covert: non-beadlock
Warn VR 10
Fab Fours front bumper
PRP custom color seat covers
67 designs dash kit
Front Runner tailgate table
Power tank

2020 Sahara
Hello all. Long-time lurker, new forum member and Jeep owner. I bought my first Jeep about one year ago after a previous trip to Moab. We rented a Jeep locally and caught the bug.

We went with a Sahara which provides the right balance for us. It’s not my daily driver but provides the most enjoyment.

As a novice Jeep owner, the forum provides great information and ideas. Hopefully, I’ll be able to contribute some.

2021 Wrangler Unlimited Sport S Sting Grey
Hello! New to the site, but not to Jeeps. Drove my 2006 Jeep Wrangler X cross-country from Alaska to Virginia for a new job last year. Traded off the Wrangler X for something a little more sporty, plus with air conditioning and cruise-control (2019 Dodge Challenger in Warship Grey). Loved the Challenger, but missed the Jeep life, so off with the Challenger, and into a Wrangler Sport-S in "Sting-Grey". Looking forward to my renewed Jeep life!

I'm so glad to be back. Had to sell the Jeep year and half ago. Went shopping today. Came home with a new Jeep. Very happy. My mind strayed for a moment this am and I went and test drove a 4Runner. That thing drives like crap. I cut the test drive short and went back to the dealer, dropped the key off and hustled outta there as fast as I could. It's insane that they want $50K for that thing. Oh well different strokes for different folks. Test drove a V8 Grand Cherokee and it was nice but not FUN like a Wrangler. Smiling the whole afternoon.

2021 Jeep Wrangler JL 2d
Hello Everybody! Waiting for our Jeep Wrangler JL 2dr to escape from the train yard in El Mirage, AZ. We chose Silver Bulliet since we wanted it to match our Class A RV. My Mom & Dad had a purple (not the original color) Willys Jeep in the 60’s and I have always had a fascination for that Jeep! We’ve had a Grand Cherokee and a Patriot. We wanted a Wrangler when we retired but it wasn’t in the budget at that time. Now we just have to wait a few more days and we will be Wrangler owners! I’ve been lurking for a few days and have already learned a lot - thanks!!!
