New Jeep Addict Here

Howdy folks! New to the forums. I bought my son his first "vehicle" almost 2 months ago.... it was a '16 Jeep Sport. He really wanted a Jeep or a little civic. I told my wife it may cost us more but I had to boost his testosterone levels and get him a Jeep.... No brainer! I didn't see the point of getting a used Jeep with nearly 100K miles and costing almost as much as a new one. Anyway.... I see it, I drove it, and that's all it took. Now I love it!

I've never owned a Jeep before. I grew up in the backwoods of Florida and off-roading is in my blood. I've always been a truck guy personally (I drive a 2015 Ford 4x4 now), but I was around old Scouts and the beautiful '55 Willy's growing up. Key point here... I've always respected Jeeps and my son just pushed me over the edge....

I just ordered the 2017 Rubicon Hard Rock and now each day feels like I'm 12 years old and it's Christmas Eve..... I can't wait! I'm considering the Teraflex 3" lift with 35's (I'm looking at Nitto, Dick Cepek, and Cooper). Any advice is appreciated.

Oh yeah... by the way, my wife has also caught the bug and decided to join in on the fun. She ordered her Sahara this week. I'm putting on a 2.5" Rough Country lift with 295/60/20 Nitto Terra Grappler G2.

I'll post pictures of the Jeep family once able.

Came here via tracking service but I'm liking everything else I'm seeing too. I think I can learn a thing or two from the folks in here. Can't wait!


-Jim
