Thanks for the warm welcome! I've always wanted a Wrangler, so I am pretty excited! The girlfriend and I took the front top off, rolled the windows down, and drove out of town - it was great! Even had somebody give me the Jeep wave!

So, fortunately after spending so much time replacing bad parts on my ZJ I am pretty good at knowing what to look for... bushings and everything look fine, but the exhaust is completely rusted! It's the only part that seems to be rusted. So, I think that it is a necessity to replace it . I am considering the MBRP Black Exhaust from Morris4x4. Does anybody have any other recommendations, or is this a pretty solid system?

As you can see in the pictures, the Jeep needs new tires, so that will probably be my next purchase. Going to try to fit some bigger tires in there, as well. Will probably do a 2.5" lift, eventually. Also, it has 65,000 miles so I will replace the shocks and spark plugs, too. Brakes seem fine.

Great to hear! Remember jk wheel wells are huge. You can fit 37s with trimming, and 35s stuffed without. Back spacing is the key as im sure you know. As for exhaust I have no clue

I have the aFe Catback which is nice because it tucks the muffler under the drivers side instead of in the rear. Looks cleaner and more importantly it doesnt seem to get banged off of rocks as much. It took a couple of weeks for it to settle in and the sound is very good. Not to irritating.

Sold the ZJ today, was sad to see her go but now I have a reliable daily driver to build up! I took the top and doors off the JK and went out on this dirt road that I could see from town, and always wanted to see where it went. Since I only have two days until I move back to the ranch, I decided I should check it out!



It ended up going about 15 miles until it ended at a farm house. Was a dusty but fun ride!

I ordered the Rancho shocks and mirror relocation kit, so those should be waiting for me in the house I am moving back to.

Haven't done anything too crazy, mostly just taking the Jeep out exploring and what-not. I put on the rear Rancho shocks, today, and the Rugged Ridge mirror relocation kit. Getting a wrench around the top shock nuts were driving me nuts, so I'll do them, tomorrow.







My new long-range lights and windshield mounting hardware will be here on Wed.
