Hey everyone, I am new to the jeep world, and have more questions then answers at this point lol. Here is the deal, I live on Long Island and am looking for a vehicle that will handle the winter snow storms and that will also be good for occasional summertime tips on the beach and perhaps some trail stuff upstate.
This will be my daily driver and I will be commuting about 45 miles each way 3-4 trips a week. Fuel milage is obviously not the best with these trucks but thats ok with me.
1) I am trying to decide between the 2011 KK possibly either the limited or 70th anniversary models, or the 2012 JK unlimited. I am sure that either vehicle would fit the bill for my needs, but what are the pros and cons of each?
2) I have been doing some research on the availability of aftermarket parts for the KK and havent found a lot, if I go that route I am thinking of a 2.5 -4 in lift with some more aggressive tires and wheels, and maybe bumpers and a roof basket. Do these exist? Are there a lot of choices in this matter?
Thanks in advance guys, and I cannot wait to join the jeep ranks in the next few weeks.
