Hey folks. Signed up here today to see what NAGCA has to offer. I am constantly cruising Jeepforum.com and bcjeepclub.ca so why not have a 3rd source of information. I rock a 97 ZJ with the 5.2L, NP249 Limited in black. It is mainly a daily driver with the idea that over the years its roll as a DD will dwindle and then it will be our Expedition/2nd or 3rd vehicle. So far I have been amazed at what this vehicle can do stock especially seeing I roll around with a 04 TJ with trac-loc rear end and we have kept head to head for almost a year now.

Default new member 2002 GC special edition

Well hello to everyone. I bought my 2002 GC brand hew and it now has 152,000 miles on it. Yes I have done some of the same usual repairs as everyone else but it still has been my favorite vehicle to own. I am having to get the blower motor resistor repaired in the next few days. It only runs on high right now. I am on 2nd set of OEM shocks and they don't seem to hold up very good. I need a new set already. Not sure what kind to buy to maintain the factory ride comfort but I'm sure someone will chime in from here and let me know.

Default New to the Jeep world.....

Hello to everyone out there.

This is my first jeep. I love it so far (not too much today though) It runs great and my wife feels safe driving it. A very important feature for a vehicle to have in my world!

The Not too much today --- The tank fell of while driving down the road. I managed to limp to my shop (with some help from a random person a forklift and some rope!!!) and will tackle the repair tomorrow with a friend who is an excellent welder / fabricator.

Oh well we gotta expect a few quirks here and there with a new to you vehicle. Besides I'll end up with an awesome brushguard / tank holder now. It will be basically indestructable when we're done with it!
