I sold my 2008 JKU Rubicon 3 years ago and am getting the itch again. I have been involved with 4x4's since 1991, and have had a few different ones over the years, including a 1995 Defender 90. I look forward to watching the development of the JL and will be joining the owners ranks a little down the road. Happy wheeling!

Welcome to the forum! I equate the Jeep Wrangler experience to riding a motorcycle, once you've had a taste of it you can't ever forge the feeling.
What have you been driving since you sold the JKU Rubicon?

Always good to have previous Jeep owners on the forum! Because you've owned 4x4's since 1991, does that mean you know your way around a wrench?

I have a 2013 Acura TSX, which is a lot of fun through the canyons to and from work everyday. It handles like a go cart. Unfortunately, I also pass the trail heads that lead to the trails I miss! I commuted with my Jeep, and after 5 years had over 130K on it. No major issues, just expense in fuel and tires, wear and tear, etc. My commute is 38 miles one way, so the miles add up.

I also had a couple of Harleys over 15 years, so I know what you mean about never losing the feeling!

I did my own maintenance (oil/lube/diff oil change, etc) and did the bolt on stuff myself. I was able to do my lift in my garage with the help of a few friends. I am more of a "help out the guy who knows what he is doing" guy! I have learned quite a bit that way, which gave me the confidence to change the thermostat myself when it went bad.

I am a member on a couple of JK forums. Through them, I was able to find not only people to help me wrench, but also friends to go wheeling with. Never go alone!
