Getting in the game!

Hey All! Long time lurker, first time poster.. Great site. Such a wealth of information and some AWESOME dubs around here! I've owned a WJ for 15 years now, and frequent this site for troubleshooting, DIYs, suggestions and general WJ knowledge.

The first WJ I left behind with my ex-wife in 2003. Bought new a 99 V8 Laredo. Had the factory class IV tow package.. used it haul my ski/wake boat to the Delta and various lakes when I lived in the SF Bay Area. Platinum/Gray cloth… great Jeep. Miss it.. not her!

Later that year, I picked up another WJ for boat towing usage and general utility as I started the next chapter in my life. A 2000 V8 Laredo w/Selec-Trac. Had <30K miles on it and is Stone White/Gray cloth. Drove it cross-country in 2006 when I moved with my then-girlfriend-now-wife to Charlotte. 16 days and 4500+ miles without issue! It's got 141K on it now, and still going strong, as long as I keep up on the maintenance! Pretty much stock right now, but that's about to change! The wife recently gave me the green light to keep it as a 3rd vehicle for utility and towing, and throw a little money at it while we focus on finding something a little bigger for our growing family.. 2 boys (5 & 2) and 2 dogs (7 & 3)!

I recently picked up a full set of JK Rubicon takeoffs, and have contacted the one-and-only Kolak to assist me in getting them under it!

I look forward to participating more in this forum as the build gets going. I've got the plans laid out. Though not all that big, a lot of the inspiration I have has come from you guys.. &

Here she is...

Charlotte huh? Only about 3hrs from me. Hit me up if you need some help installing your lift or anything else. Granted I'm from the ZJ world but I can still lend you a hand.
