New owner

Hello Everyone,

I'm new to the forum seen and recently traded in my '09 Jaguar XF supercharged for an '18 JKU Altitude in black, on black.

This isn't the first Wrangler I've been involved in purchasing, I helped my parents find an '06 Golden Eagle for their move from MI to Utah last summer.

A little about me, I'm in my late 30s, an Automotive Electrical Engineer, based out of Detroit, and enjoy a good brew!

Looking forward to reading your build threads and getting some ideas!

Thanks,
-Four

Welcome to JKO!

An automotive electrical engineer based in Detroit eh? Do you work for one of the big three? Or a company that makes stuff for the big three?

Oh another thing. You use to own a Jaaaagggg. My only experience with them is from The Grand Tour. Or was it Top Gear? Either way, Jeremy Clarkson said that when ever a Jaaaagggg owner visits someone’s house, they leave with the guys silverware. Now that you have a Jeep, you need to leave that behind, as you will now be leaving oil spots on your friends driveways instead.

I may have only acquired silverware once or twice, it was never intentional!
