Yet another Texan

I just bought a 2010 Sahara Unlimited, looking forward to modifying it, let me know if you have any advice on what I should do first.

No way!!! We are chock full of Texan's. No vacancy. Maybe try back in a couple weeks.

Welcome to jkowners.

IMO- Drive your new JK for a while, do some off-roading. Eventually you will begin to get a feel for things you like/ don't like/ want to upgrade/ want to change/ etc. Think about what kind of wheeling you do/ want to do- mud, rock crawling, night wheeling, etc. Get into a group, and find some JK's to go out on the trails with. Wheel, compare, watch, research, etc.

Try not to be too overwhelmed with all that exists out there. There is just too much.

We have a trip coming up at Hidden Falls and the new K2/ Katemcy. Long Ranch is a nice place to go too, where you can get a feel of your Jeep's capabilities in a very relaxed setting.

Looks like he will be open most weekends now. But jkowners doesn't have any immediate plans to head out there as a group as of right now. Jeep Nation may have plans to go out there- dunno.

Hate to say it, but looks like Rusty's Walnut Creek will be out until we get a stretch of dry weather (more rain predicted next week ). Rusty doesn't want to have a bunch of rigs tearing up the place when it's muddy. Lame- I know, but he's like 183 years old and kinda set in his ways.

Welcome to JKO
You just want a Jeep to drive because yours is broke.

Welcome!!

As far as mods go... take a bucket and cut a hole in the bottom, then start throwing hundred dollar bills in it until it fills up. That should be pretty close on what to expect - you will never have more fun dumping the money into something though.
