New WJ owner in Pittsburgh, YEAH!!!!!

Hiya all,
Just bought my first Jeep back in May, it is an Inferno Red 2002 JGC Overland 4.7 HO V8, completely loaded with painted rock rails, also K&N cai. I am currently at 150K, and the truck is super clean for it's age. The blend doors were repaired by the first owner, this person owned a car dealerships and this truck was used by the father to drive between dealerships. Well maintained and just has some of the usual WJ things to address i.e. front hub bearings, blower motor wiring, just replaced starter, power steering hose leak, and minor rust spots. Other then that it's a solid truck.
If I can figure out how to put in a pic I will lol...
I am really looking for some places to wheel near Pittsburgh, I live East of the city. Anyhoo, just saying hello and BEEP! BEEP!
I have definately been bitten by the Jeep bug, and have a few things I wanna do to my truck... love turning wrenches!
Laterz,
Deanna

My chrome is starting to flake off, they still look great until you get down and look at them. I plan on using the 17" rogues for knobbys and I am getting SRT-8 replicas for driving around town. I already scored the tires to go with the 20s lol... plan on doing a 3" lift soon after I do the front hub bearings. You here that Santa? heh heh heh

Ive got an 03 Overland, same issues with wheels, look great from about 5 feet and beyond but really starting to flake near centercap, cant see spending 300 or more for each new one. I was hoping to get a hold of yours! Did u get a good deal on yours, Ive got about 78000 miles on mine

I got mine for 5000 cash on Craigslist. It had about 144k on it when i got it, it just turned 150k a few weeks ago and that included a road trip to South Florida. The rogues are sweet wheels. I like the rounded spoke parts because they shine from all angles. OOOooooo are there any good places to ride up your way! I love taking my family to the Laurel Highlands.

she has 17" jk rubi wheels on it now. the old rims are for winter only, and soon they will go away. they are pitted, and loose to much air.

I try to get to the mountains whenever i can, there a lot of nice fire roads,covered bridges,and scenic locations all around the 7springs,hidden valley,ohio pyle area.im sure most are covered with snow now but any get away is a good get away. If you get up that way im sure we'll definitly pass each other

Enjoy

So I'm working in Butler. Just sold my F250 and buying a WJ. I don't plan on titling or tagginng in PA. Do I have to have a notary to get the title? The laws here confuse me.
