    Hi just purchased a Wrangler for my son in the Savannah area. Trying to help him help himself to do his own work. Problem is I'm new to the Jeep off roading world myself, I do have some knowledge but figure this forum would be the best way for him and I to learn more about the proper way to repair and fix it up. Great father / son project. Thanks for having me.

    Welcome to the site. As you are about to discover, Jeeps, and more specifically Wranglers, have the largest number of parts and modifications available of any car/truck/suv make. Choosing what is right for you and your son will be the tough part. Just take it slow and you may find, as so many of us have, that JEEP is a lifestyle and is as addictive as anything. lol

    We put on new rotors, brakes, studs, tires, charged AC, battery and greased it. Put bed liner on floor boards. The next thing I want to do is change wheel bearings and parking brake assembly and replace soft top. Where is the best place to take axles to have bearings pressed on also to order soft top? We're in Savannah GA but can order soft top online.

    I am a long way from GA so my opinion is not worth much. (although I need a good night on the wharf with some good Irish music.) However, Yelp has a business that really stands out from the others there. These folks have 52 reviews (which is many times what the others have) and folks seem real happy with them. Might be worth checking them out. https://www.yelp.com/biz/integrity-auto-repair-savannah-2
