Be careful after you lock your doors and start to walk away! Make sure you have a clear path with no obstacles, cause when you turn back to stare at your Jeep, and don't look where you're walking, it can be dangerous to you and those around you

Welcome to the forum and to the Jeep community!!! Your jeep looks alot like mine did stock, except mine had the little wheels without the sticker on the hood. But I love it now! Check out my build thread in my signature...

Rock it stock, read as much as you can and decide what you what to do later. That is one capable machine you already have right there. I'm still waiting (two years next month) to pull open my wallet, because once it starts it won't stop till you run out of cash. My dream list tops 7500 for tires, rims, lift, adjustable control arms, gears, procal, scanguage,...and...

Hello and welcome. My previous vehicle was a Honda civic SI, not very much stuff on that car was stock. Your coming from a smilar platform regarding speed and handling. Do your self one favor, get used to going slow. Bolt ons for these things are a waste of money. I have yet to see a dyno sheet at all, let alone showing any sort of gain after bolt ons.

The 2 door is awesome. Enjoy it, you can go where a lot of other's cant simply cause you got a Rubi. Mine is my 3rd jeep, and kills my previous two off road in stock form. Not to much to do to run 35's besides a lift n wheels.

Thanks everyone!!! I plan on keeping it stock for at least a few months I am totally in love with it!!! The mygig nav system is AWESOME as well!! and the speakers sound great!!

I am an avid mountain biker, and am getting into triathlons so I dont have too much time to go 4wheelin but I will try later this summer after my tri season but I am sure it will help me find some great biking trails though

I will try an post some more pics of it soon.

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.

Just want to reinforce the previous ideas to DRIVE IT STOCK for a while. Youve got an awesome top of the line jeep for this year. Have fun and get good at driving it and read up around here to things you COULD do.

Find things you SHOULDNT do as much as things you SHOULD.

Drive it stock for a while. Don't be a hero until you know exactly what you want. Take the doors off in the summer and keep the top down and have fun. Very nice Jeep man.
