howdy! (From NC)

Hello, my name is stephen! i am new 'round these here parts. i'm from a little town named apex right in the middle of north carolina. I just got my first jeep three days ago, a 2008 JK rubicon. I have had fords for the past 6 years (02 mustang, then a focus) and have had volvos since i was 14. My girlfriend got a KK liberty about 2 months ago and after driving it, i had to get a jeep for myself. thats where my rubicon came into play. I was looking for used ones, but every one i found had like 200k miles and was just a big hunk of poop. then this popped up and i snatched it up before anyone else did!

so far, i love it! i've put maybe 200 miles on it so far and man, theres something awesome about driving a jeep. i've found some little obstacles, but quickly realized they're WAY too easy for a rubicon haha. looking to take it to some off road parks and the beach a lot this summer, and SLOWLY modifying it too. Im a welder, so i'm going to make some bumpers for it hopefully soon. i've got some plans, but not a lot of money at the moment, so maybe i'll look at this as me refining my plans haha.

i do have one problem with it already.. it didn't come with a rear seat..no idea what happened to it, i have the head rests and the seat belts but no dang seat. after seeing how much money the seats are going for, is there any way i can retrofit or add a cheap seat in the back? thanks!

heres my jeep!
