I'm a Jeep guy once again in Maryland

Hey all,

I just purchased a 2008 Jeep WK Overland 4x4 last night. 14 years ago I purchased my first vehicle...a 1989 Jeep XJ. I modded it like crazy and have always regretted having to sell it when I needed more money toward the end of college. Well I'm back into a Jeep once again. I already took it out and tested the Quadra-Drive II in a logging area nearby. The WJ is down on ground clearance compared to my lifted Dodge Ram for sure, but the traction is incredible!!! Anyway, I hope to learn a lot from fellow WK owners. I'm sure I won't make it more than a week until the first mod. I am already eyeing the OME suspension systems.

Re: I'm a Jeep guy once again in Maryland

I got a chance to wash my Jeep this morning, since I had dirtied it in a logging area testing the 4wd low range within a few hours of purchase.

Not sure what the first mod will be...I'm already looking to put on an OME suspension and rock rail supersliders. I also plan to spray all the factory chrome pieces and make them black chrome. I am looking to armor the front bumper somehow. I don't think I want a full replacement bumper so I'm up to suggestions from those who know more about the aftermarket for WKs.
