I just joined too. I bought a 17 JKU Rubicon 11 months ago and have it pretty much fully built now. Just Empty Ever Pocket. Best thing I ever did is buy a new one and dump a ton of money in it. I use it non stop and much nicer then my 2 older Jeeps were with 200k miles on them and the constant breaking down. Im sure it will be a great adventure for you if its half as fun as mine has been.
