Just bought a 2010 Jeep Wranger Rubicon last night!!

Hey everyone!! I just wanted to say HI, since I just got a new Rubicon last night!! I LOVE IT!! I am coming from a Mazda RX-8, so this is quite a change for me to say the least

I cant wait for spring now though, so I can take the top off!!

Congratulations! If I were starting all over again, I would do a Superchips, AFE drop in filter and Flowmaster muffler (or similar exhaust) first. The performance boost is really worth it

The 2008 Jeep Wrangler is not so much an SUV as it is an experience. It's slow and loud, handles poorly, has crummy interior materials and features doors that provide virtually no crash protection. But when it comes to off-road performance, the Wrangler is simply the best choice available.

prepare to have any empty wallet. Once the sickness sets in, there's no cure .....oh and enjoy driving a real legend.

study the owners manual and get fimiliar with how the different systems on it work, 4WD is a bit more than just 'shift and go'.
