Traded the F150 in!

Went and traded the F150 in this morning. They paid it off for me and I picked this up.

2012 Wrangler Sport 5 speed, 3.6L







Finally fits in my garage. I will get more pictures tomorrow, I got it just in time to go to work tonight after being at the dealership for 3.5 hours.

First thing I did when I got it home was take the doors off and proceeded to put a dent in the fender. Hopefully I can pop it out if not I will call a paintless dent repair guy to fix it.

Probably just like a 2.5" lift, 33's, some black rims for now. Eventually bumpers and a winch and all that jazz.

Thats why I bought it. I didn't like the look of the red with the black rims and lifted and didn't want black on black on black so I opted for the dozer (orangeish yellow).

Good deal. I've heard that new 3.6L kicks that old 3.8L's ***! Altho, the exhaust manifolds are cast into the heads. Im not too keen on that aspect of it.

It actually has some pickup, a lot more then I thought it would. 285HP in the little thing gives it some pep.

Yeah it nice to be able to take them off so fast. Although my arms got sunburned yesterday just from driving to work with the top and doors off. lol

Yeah it should fit. I will probably only park it in the garage when the top and doors are off. When its all on it can sit in the driveway.

So far it is but I do miss the F150. I will probably miss it for a little while but I'll get over it.

I have no clue either. They should all come with MT's like the rubicons. The wheels are tires are the thing I hate the most.


And I can't help but want to go to the beach and burry it just to use 4wd. This is my first 4wd vehicle. haha
