    Hey guys! I want to learn more about my jeep, but i know absolutely nothing about cars.. (my jeep isnt a car)

    Where can i start? I need a "mentor" who can help me build it in the best possible way while staying on budget. This is be a 3 year long project, mainly bc everything is too damn expensive!

    Welcome! Check out some of the builds here and around the Internet for ideas. Your 3 year plan is reasonably sound. The Jeep aftermarket for upgrades/parts is huge as the selection + price range is all over the place. Making your jeep your own can depend upon whether you like the flash, functionality and if your budget can tolerate it. Post a few pics, roll some ideas and you will see we like to help you open that wallet LOL.

    Hello Samy, welcome from Oklahoma. Can't help you much with your JKU, I just drive a "station wagon".

    And sometimes hand-me-down parts.

    Welcome to the forum.
    Some great advice offered up top. A 3 year project is a good place to start. But don't be surprised if you go off track a bit.
    Good luck. And hey...post up some pics. We like Jeep porn.

    Welcome from Florida!

    3yrs sounds like a good plan......except once you start making changes to your Jeep it will never stop lol. No matter how many times you say ok now I'm done......your really not. Welcome to JeepLife!
