This is my first Jeep ever. Bought a new-to-me Olive Green 2009 4X4 Sport 5spd with Boston Stereo. 14K miles, and in great shape! So far, so good. First thing I did when I got home was order and install a new shift knob for it. I couldn't STAND the OEM knob. Ended up with a NRG Super Low Down Heavy Weight 5-speed (Black) Universal Shift Knob, and LOVE the way it looks and feels in the Jeep. Most of all, the car now feels the way I want it to coming from first to second, which seemed like such a L-O-N-G throw to me - maybe I just have short arms...No other mods (yet), but may be up for some that don't require a lot of technical skill. It's my ONLY car, so I can't have it taken apart for longer than a day... I like what I'm experiencing so far. Go JEEP!
