Thumbs up New guy saying hey!

Hello to all,

I'm new to the Jeep cult but hope I can become a member. Like many on here I've lusted after Jeeps since they were Willys MB. Almost. My goal is to become familiar with all the do's and dont's by initially reviewing the many threads before I start asking the dumb questions that have been answered a hundred times.
My preference is a unlimited that have sensible mods. I'm thinking at this point that buying a JK from someone on this blog would improve my chances but I welcome feedback on that idea.
Experience wise I can turn a wrench and I've built a few motors from the block up and had go-fast cars so I'm hoping I won't need detailed descriptions like which end of the hammer to hold. However, the secrets to doing something the easy way or what are DUMB ideas will be highly appreciated.
Once I learn to navigate the blog I'll be ready to "Build or buy"!!!!!
Thanks.

welcome! the single and most simple advice i can give you: find what makes sense for your wallet and your style (but keep it simple if its your first) and just get out and use it, wheel it, offroad it, or overland it. whatever your thing is just get out. then decide the direction you want to go.

2013 JKUR Billet Silver ->
[JKUR - 6 Speed][3.5" MC ARB Lift][40" Nitto Trail Grapplers on 17" TR Beadlocks][5.38s][Fusion 4x4 Kingpin 1 Tons][MC Front & Rear Bumpers][sPOD][Warn Zeon 10s][And more ...]

welcome to the forum. It is a good one. I concur with @dalearyous ; don’t get bogged down in all of these opinions or other forum’s or social media or anything. Get a jeep you like & then find some group you can enjoy being around to start getting out. Only by driving , exploring and discovering can you honestly determine anything the vehicle might be better able to perform or achieve someth8ng if it had ______ installed .
There’s no secret formula except driving driving crawling crawling breaking bending lyingunder wrenching driving driving...

You’re in good company so go enjoy the jeep. They can tackle far more than most new owners are set to handle or require right out of the dealer.
The mods will come....

OK, nevermind I found my answer. Damm you are old.


So let me start by suggesting to keep your questions to one area. Try not to shit on another welcome thread with your questions.

This place is just as good as any to try to find a jeep for sale. But with anything do your homework. Also you might have to wait a long time to find one for sale here since this place has slowed down since facebook has taken off. But there are still some of us here.

So ask away.
