Hello from Granby, CT
« on: March 28, 2017, 04:05:41 PM »
Name's Chris.  Just bought a used 2013 JKU and trying extremely hard to show some restraint on upgrades!  I am a first time wrangler owner(my wife was not interested in the upgrades I had planned for her WK).  I am planning to attend the Meet and Greet at Bear's in April (great food!) however I will be working in Hartford until 7:30ish but I'm hopeful the gathering will still be going when I get there...  I look forward to discussing upgrades and tips on installation.  I am in no way an expert mechanic however I am not affraid to get my hands dirty.  I have been driving my high school vehicle for the last decade plus and continue to keep her going with the craftsman wrench set my father gave me!!

I look forward to meeting fellow Jeepers in April!

Chris
2013 JKUS
