Hi all. I'm new to this forum. I've allways wanted a jeep as far back as I can remember. When I was 14 I bought my veary first vehicle, a 1948 Willy's M38 military jeep.

I was easaly able to talk my dad into letting me buy it as we had just moved to a veary rual town in northern WI. And this jeep was set up with a snow plow. And was only 400 bucks.

It was'nt much but for being as old as it was, 4x4 and no rust any where it was a good little jeep. Majore down side was it was veary unpridictable. Never new if it would start or quit running.

And as it was manual steering I did'nt really want to take it off roading.

When I moved back down here 10 years ago I had to sell it. :skull:

I've always regreted having to sell it, so last year when I whent in serch of a new vehicle I was hell bound on a jeep wrangler.

After 2 days serching I found the one. A 1998 jeep TJ sport. When I bought it they had just put on a new 3.5 inch rubicon express lift kit and 33 inch tires.:drool5:

I've been looking for a jeep club to join for a while, but have been a little aprehensive after seeing some pics of the stuff ya'll are doing. :eek:

I have been off rodading, normaly just my dad and I. After gettng stuck at the coke ovens, and breaking my front drive shaft :aagh: I vowed to never go alone again.

Here is a pic of my and my jeep

I was up there today for work.........Man I wish I had my jeep.:driving: There where all kinds of dit roads that looked like a good stop to go jeeping. But instead I had my work truck. It's not much of an off roader.

I may have to go back up there on friday.....hopfully I can talk my boss into letting me trailer my jeep up there.:pimp2:

Thanks for the welcome every one.:party:

My_Green_Jeep, Yes Kim was veary helpfull getting me this jeep. I would defaitly buy another jeep from her.

Also, that pic of your white jeep, was that taken the day of Airpark's jeep poker run?

I just wish I had more money to spend on my jeep.

I have 2 expanive hobbies. My jeep, and radio controled trucks.

I found the rest of the pictures I've taken while off roading. If any one wants to look.

(It's only abought 1 full pag, but its on 2 pages.)

Welcome. I'm sure you are finding out that a jeep can get you into a whole new level of trouble off road:D

LOL........I am actualy suprised what trouble I can get my jeep into and she just pulls out of it with out breaking a sweat.

Well.......exept for the last one. :oops: Breaking my front drive shaft was not fun at all.

But after I finished breaking it she still was able to get me off the trail and back home.

My main job at the place where I work is running around town picking up and droping off. First thing I always ask is will it fit in my jeep. :)

I am provided with a company truck, but it's not as fun to drive as my jeep.
Besides no one looks at the company truck and says....nice toy., or where are you taking off to this weekend. :laugh4:

I've had quit a few cars and trucks over the years. including other 4x4's. and a few sports cars as well. My jeep is kind of like having a sports car that can go off roading.:laugh2:

Don't worry, not ALL of us are totally insane. But some of us are. Stay away from runs posted by Shnipe, he will sink your rig in a river or something. And a few of the guys here on the site have been accused of having an abandoned rig out at a cleanup.:oops:

I thought I would post this here. After going on the last few runs and being unsecsessfull at going over a few obsticals I realized I needed lockers. But was a litle aprehinsive abought putting lockers in my other wise stock D30/D35 axals, and knowing I really wanted a Rubicon. I had to finaly let my 98 TJ sport go. :disappointed:

Jason, at airpark chrystler made me buy a 2003 jeep rubicon. :party:

All though I have been a member of this club for a while now, and dont consider my self a newbie, I am new to this hole locking diff and know cutch thing. Just have to keep riminding my self that the break pedel is not a clutch and leave the gear shifter alone. :D
