New guy ready to learn

Hello Jeep Forum,
I am brand new to the forum, and new to Jeep.
I have been around Jeeps my whole life, and am now finally in a position to buy one.
I am not a gear head, but can do minor mods myself. I will be purchasing a Jeep Wrangler very soon, and wanted opinions on new versus used and any other input.
It will be my daily driver, as well as light off-roader. I am not looking to do any major mudding, rock crawling or hill climbing.
I love the look of the 2014 Willy's Wheeler, but can't seem to find any in stock. Are they limited release?
What are your opinions on lifting a daily driver?
I want to go black on black with flat black wheels.
I hate chrome, and heard no respectable jeep has it, of course that could be said about black on black too.
I'm going with the 2 door, but what are exterior lighting options, or interior audio additions.
What about tops? The dual top package OK? I know I want a hard top for winter, but not sure I want the soft top with full doors. I know I want a soft top, or topless for summer, but may want half doors part time.
Are the aftermarket items better than the factory items?
That's what I love about Jeep, the ability to switch it up.
I would love the honest opinion from all of you experienced owners before I go to a dealer and get gouged for every possible option.
Thanks in advance to anyone willing to help this newbie into the Jeep community.

Time to educate yourself. Its all here and its all free. All it takes is a little initiative on your part. Start here:

After you have gone through this you will have answered a lot of your own questions.

Hey guys, there is NO SUCH THING as RPMS. There is NO "S" in RPM.
A little knowledge is a dangerous thing, but not nearly as much as ignorance.

I can't give big advice, because I didn't do a lot of pumping up to my baby. I liked how it was, just the way it was. However, congratulations on finally buying your own! Good luck with everything.
