Hey everyone, New to Wranglers and new to this forum. My last vehicle was an 02 WJ with. Few minor budget mods like a 2" BB, brushguard, and a few other things. Nothing crazy.


It started having a lot of issues so I decided it was time for another vehicle. Was planning on another WJ, but have always wanted a wrangler.
I picked up my new to me 07 JK Sahara about a week ago and I absolutely love it. It's got about 98800 miles on itand it's pretty close to mint. I got it for a steal couldn't say no! It already has an AEM Brute Force cold air intake on it and a Banks Monster cat back exhaust system, sounds soo nice, not to loud and no drone but sounds like it's got power when I get on it. The underbody is really clean and hardly anyvrust which is a big car killer here in Cleveland OH. It does have a few minor flaws too but nothing major to worry about. Things like one of the rubbers on the hood missing for the windshield rest, scrape on the passenger front fender, chip in the windshield so small I didn't even notice til I was driving home with it, cracked rear tail light (no white shines thru) the power window button for the drivers side sticks when rolling the window down, and the soft top above the drivers door is messed up (don't know what that plastic piece that tucks into the door frame above the doors called, but no leaks) Anyways, I've been reading through this forum a lot to learn all I can, since I don't know anything about the JK, and I know how helpful you guys can be. (had a few build threads for the WJ on a few other forums) So just a few questions to the guys more experienced, anything i should watch out for? any companies to avoid? I've never done any real wheeling just little service roads and mud holes in the WJ, so with this being stick I'm a little nervous as this is my first stick any pointers on wheeling with a stick? And any suggestions on a good color that goes with my red rock crystal pearl? It's not really a red but like a reddish brown, I like bright colors, something that stands out.

I'm still wondering where I should start.... My first thoughts are to win the lottery or something along those lines for funds

Yeah I got lucky with my JK. My WJ blew a motor (in the middle of taking legal action against the mechanics) and I had no car at all went in to a fiat dealership to look at used cars. No fiats! So no worries there. And it was this or a Chrysler 300 srt8... The JK won. Almost didn't get approved, since I have 0 credit.

So I finally decided what direction I wanted to take the jeep, now while I save up for parts I started with the cheapest thing I could do... A little paint. I'm going to go with an iron man type of theme, like the jeep was built by Stark Industries, haven't really had much time but I put a little gold on the front to see how the colors went together. I like it and I think this will be a fun project.
