New to me JK

We'll today I went to the Jeep dealer to pick something up and I ended up scoring a nice deal on a 2011 Rubicon. It was a bitter sweet moment. It was very hard leaving my 08 JKU there after all the mods and adventures we had. The new JK only has 19k on the odometer. It hasn't been touched so now I need to figure out what I want to do to it. I have learned the hard way from my 08 so we will see

Just got done taking off the stupid side steps. Looks much better now. I didn't want another JKU because I am planing to start doing tight trails and my old JKU was just to long for what I wanted.

Once I get off work the mud flaps are coming off then I will post new picks. Also thinking of ordering up the AEV DualSport XT suspension 2.5". Then going to go with a 33x12.5x17. the 35" tires on the old JK were just to big for me. I do have a question with that lift am I going to have to order new drive shafts? On the JKU with my 4" lift I had to put in Tom Woods drive shafts after a year due to the angle. Any advice will be greatly appreciated
