Hey JG Fam!

Hey everyone,

Long time Maxima driver. I'm actually in the market, looking to switch into something bigger but still sporty, hence me joining the JG forums. So far, I've found a lot of awesome information on here. Look forward to becoming a part of the community!

Re: Hey JG Fam!

I did the same thing I joined about a week before I revived my jeep. I just picked it up on Saturday and I love it already went on a road trip. Picked it up with 3mi now it has 795 already the most comfortable car I have owned yet. Good luck with your decision.

Re: Hey JG Fam!

Thanks man. It took a while to get to the decision of even looking at a Jeep. I'm a taller/bigger guy, 6'4" 255lbs, and I really needed the space. I've spent the past few months test driving/researching WRX and STi's but I really need something bigger and still wanted an aggressive machine. What trim did you get?

I find the seats to be narrow and I'm only 5' 10", 170lbs. Have you sat in the GC, what did you think? Just curious...

I just crossed 800miles on my new Overland. Got the windows tinted yesterday I love it more than I liked my '14.

Re: Hey JG Fam!

Hey overlanding,

Nope, haven't had the chance to step in a Jeep dealer just to test drive. My last few months of shopping have been solely Subaru focused until recently. Hopefully this weekend I'll drive one. What percentage did you go for the front windows? Did you match the factory 20% or whatever the heck the they tint from the factory?

Hey JG Fam!

I did 10% all around. That's usually what I do on my vehicles. And in New Mexico they aren't strict at all.

I hope you get a chance to check out some Jeeps soon. Let us know what you think when you do!

What are you looking at, trim wise?

Re: Hey JG Fam!

I'm in NY. Some cops really don't care and others are total d*cks. I've gotten tickets for 35%. I'm in love with the Altitude but it seems like it's an attention grabber. I'm leaning towards the Limited with the 20" polished wheels. I love the look of them on the Overland.
