Welcome to JKOwners.
You landed in a good forum , just deal with 'em and
you'll learn a boatload. Usually, lots of us sggst you go have some adventure & fun in its stock form. That way, as you discover the inner "Jeep you" and come understand just exactly how you're going to use this new fun tool you've gotten and in what manner you need to have it changed to accomplish whatever that is. These things are really a lot of fun and a whole lot more capable than most people need , just out of the box. When you come across some form of limitation or question that you've got about it , ask here.
Have a thick skin; you won't find a better bunch of heathen than here.
Congrats on the nice looking Sahara Unlimited. Mine is a Sahara Unlimited, also ...

Again, glad to make your acquaintance.

Well said!

Have thick, thick skin!!

And WooHoo!! Congrats on your new JEEP!!


If I had to do it all over again - I'd do everything under the Jeep FIRST and all other mods last. I wouldn't buy lights, bumpers, winch, or other stuff until you get the suspension, steering, wheels/tires all taken care of first. And I'd check here to get peoples used crap when they upgrade. Save tons of money.

But wheel it stock first and you figure out what you want your new Jeep to be.

Austin has a very active club that heads to Hidden Falls off road park @ Marble Falls often. Last couple of times that I saw them they had several stock rigs and new pilots. They would be a great group for you to consider contacting.
I canít tell you much more about them but Iím sure you can locate them through Facebook.
One of their leaders goes by ďScooterĒ, he knows the trails well and is a good spotter.
