    None, yet...
    My husband and I are new to Jeeps (2016 Wrangler Sport S)...we haven't even picked ours up yet...getting excited about it though. We have been more "boat" people than anything, but looking forward to this new adventure. Any ideas on the best websites to go to for accessories? Tires, wheels, "yellow" accents?

    I do have a question...under Jeep Discussion...what does JL, JK, TJ, YJ & CJ stand for after Wrangler...we are so new to Jeeps, we have no clue what it means.

    Thank you!

    Passing the wave.

    Had my Cherokee for 14 years. And not once did I get a wave. Lol. Driving the 2 miles the night I bought my Wrangler. I got 2. My ex drove a JKU. And she got waves. I'd say hey I drive a Jeep. Says it right there on the steering wheel. Lol.

    After owning my JK for 3 months now. I finally get it. It's not just a Jeep thing. It's a Wrangler thing.
    Passing the wave:jeepwave: Welcome. Have fun
