Texan gone rogue in Mile High

Hi all!
Been in Colorful Colorado for just over a year now. Relocated from Dallas for work and after my second snow “storm”... err dusting... I chicken sh*tted and left my shiny new Mustang in my office parking lot and Ubered to the dealer where I picked up a previously loved 2010 JKU Rubicon. The dealer went on about features none of which I unserstood as I’ve never considered a lift on a sports car but it seemed practical and would fit the doggos. Single owner in Montana cared for it dearly and I think twice about the 142,000 on the odometer.

Fast forward 9 months and just shy of 25,000 miles my daily driver has been back to the Promised Land twice, up and down the mountains, through every puddle, pond and flood I could find and still runs like a champ. At the ripe age of 25 I’ve taken a up a new job title “Unemployed” and loving it— haven’t had time off since I was a senior in High School and with the help of my mechanic neighbor I’ve found what was once a friendly wave to my brothers and sisers with same grille has turned into my new favorite hobby.

In the last 2 weeks I....
-Installed PowerStop Z36 Truck+Tow brakes and rotors (what I should have said is for the last 2 weeks I...). Certain that was the one thing left untouched for the cars life
-Started spark plugs, was reprimanded (and graciously informed) by my only forum friend j3ffrey_j33p for not introducing myself
-Upgraded to LED rear blinkers, after 89 trips to AZ for odds and ends I am proud to say the solder to my equalizer lasted 9 minutes during brake-break in!
-Getting rust off the chassis, becoming friends with rubberized spray paint. Trying not to get carried away.
-Oh and tomorrow I will attempt to fix what it undeniable a DW. Not a “think it is” or “symptomatic of” but with 100% certainty. By fix I will likely drive back to my local 4x4 as my ATB was installed not long ago at all.

Thanks for having me, happy jeeping!!

Good first “real” post! Sorry to hear about the unemployment. But sounds like you will have more time to wrench on your Jeep.

I am new here as well. Nice to see another new member!
