Noob with some confessions to make.....

Ok guys....

I have to get this off my chest and endure my whippings for this....

I have had my 05LJ since Aug 15th and I need to confess my sins.....


As much research as I did before purchasing my LJ I decided I didn't need the Rubicon. I settled for the regular LJ. I regret doing this as I will eventually regear, upgrade my front axle and lock my diffs. I even have black diamond plate rocker guards because I really like that on the rubis.

When I drove from Jax to Orlando to look at the jeep I wanted, (it was late 05, finding exactly what I wanted was tough!) It had the chrome grill. I didn't like it much but I bought it anyway. It grew on me being that its a black jeep and I decided to get the stainless tail light guards and stainless locking hood latches.

I wish I had gotten black and taken the grill cover off to expose the black grill. The stainless door sill protectors now look ridiculous now that the doors are off.

While removing the doors for the first time last week I scratched my nuts and was pretty upset about it. I also took a hammer and banged on the bolts from the bottom thinking they would come off before posting "hey I cant get these bolts out" and another forum member schooling me to lift the doors up.

When doing the oil change I was greasing the joints for the first time and didn't know you attach the hose to the zirk. Instead I put grease on my finger and rubbed it all around the outside of the rubber joint/boot. The next day I did it correctly.

I washed every bit of dirt off my new jeep for the first month. Its dirty as hell now and has a million bugs plastered to it with a cracked windshield that is getting fixed today.

I didn't allow my dog to ride cause hes a yellow lab and sheds like crazy all over my black carpet. now it looks like a barber shop in my jeep. Logan is 100% jeep dog now.

I secretly think black rims are the ugliest things ever. steelies. But now I am starting to think they are kinda cool if I can find a good design.

ok. I got that off my chest. Just wanted to come clean! thanks!

Hahahaha, nice confession.

I think we all were upset the first time we scratched the DOOR nuts on our brand new Jeeps... then you realize who the hell cares and either continue to not worry about scratching them or do like most of us, and just stop putting them back on.

Yeah I'm gonna make a mirror ornament out of them for my rearview. I'll end up slapping some end caps on the bolts. I also scratched the Jeep just behind the nuts. After the first few scratches you are over the hill and its so liberating not to care as much anymore. Those first 2 months were agonizing. Not only because the though of scratches were devistating but knowing I had a jeep and shouldnt care was killing me too.

lol

When I bought my YJ, they didnt even have the door nuts on them. It's a lot more convenient that way. All ya gotta do is open the door and it just slides right off.

Yeah, I feel a little stupid for buying a Jeep without knowing what to look for. I got stuck with the worst combination of axles/gears I could get: D35/3.07. I should have researched first then shopped around a little more.
