FIRST CAR! Ultimate trail teams!

Hey all,
So I am actually turning 16 very soon and wanted to get to practicing the car Iím going to drive, and my parents agreed, beginning to dig into possible solutions for my first car. I had told them I was looking for a nice wrangler, good sporty car that I might be able to ding up and sell in a few years. However, my dad did some research and came across an Fj. I instantly fell in love. We looked at countless other cars and my parents were considering other things, but as soon as I had seen that crazy unique car, I couldnít dream of getting anything else. So, after a while, I pitched in some money and expected a nice high mileage 2007 or so, but was blown away to see my dad had contacted one of his dealer friends and hunted down a 2014 Ultimate Trail Teams Edition, with only 48,000 miles! It came with a pre installed bass kicker and a snorkel, and I think I can say I am proud to be one of the 2,500!

Welcome!

Go ahead, skin it! Skin that smoke wagon and see what happens...

I'll ride in on a sunny day, Sing you a song, steal your heart away Like a cowboy Hang my hat like I'm here for awhile Kick off my boots and drive you wild Like a cowboy Well baby you know I can't stay long You wake up, I'll be gone Until then I'll hold on Like a cowboy.

Thanks for the advice, I of course barely made a dent in the cost, but wanted to help what I could. I donít want to do too much modding with it since itís already pretty jacked with TRD. But if I take good care of this car I can get at least another 100k miles on it!

Haha yep, the previous owner definitely took good care of it but I can tell he took it to the trails. If I can find a nice off-road place near me Iíll take it out as much as I can. I love this car and Iím taking it to the grave.
