Default Hello Team-BHPians, a Jeep Freak here.

Thank you all for letting me be a member of this great comunity, finally (I had almost given up on it). Anyways I don't care about it now that I am here . Well I'm 29 years old and my friends call me Joe, working as Computer Programmer in a govt. organisation . I live in the beautiful city of Shillong. My passions are Jeeps, Music, Nature and stuff like Computers,Photography etc.
We used to own a 1942 Willy's MB (until last year), Grew up with that Jeep, countless expeditions, fishing trips or just city rides . My childhood dream was to own a mean jeep one day, used to make toy jeeps complete with a hood and a trailer as a kid and pull it all over my place.
Finally, in march this year I was able to fulfill my dream. I got myself a 1998 MM550 XD. A lot of research was done using Team-BHP before i acquired it. Hats off to you guys. Now I'm a proud owner and I am obsessed with my jeep. I guess i better stop my introduction here (Its getting rather long), shall be posting pics and lots of other stuff soon, also planning to spice it up so will need a lot of help from all you people here soon.
Asta Lavista.

Welcome aboard Johannes. Nice to have another jeeper in here. So you go off-roading in there around your place? I am sure there must be several places to go off-roading there.

Would love to see offroad pictures and stories from you.

Again, welcome and enjoy your stay here.

Thanks, well its a great pleasure to be amongst so many people with a passion for jeeps.. Actually my affair with my jeep started just a few months back since I got her and we've been off the road a few times (Especially while going fishing, my other obsession) . I'm looking forward to many many trips in the future. There's no dearth of bad roads here.. So if you want to own a car here its best to get a jeep.

Welcome Johannes. One more 4X4 addict. My God our tribe is growing.
I would have thought that you would be more comfortable in a short chassis Defender. As im told there are many roaming freely in Shillong.

Have a great stay here.
