My new toy...

Hey all, just picked up my new toy, a 2009 Wrangled Sahara Unlimited, and love it. It's got 60 kms on it, and aside from the usual options, it also came with a Katzkin leather package, 2" ProComp lift kit, 18" Mamba M4 wheels, 35x12.5x18 Toyo Open Country MTs and aftermarket front and rear bumpers (haven't figured out what kind yet) with a custom large spare tire mount. I plan on installing an NFab wheel to wheel 3" nerf bar, some grab handles, and a winch, so far. Here are my questions:

I've narrowed it down to either the Milemarker 8000 lb PEC8 (steel) at 380 or the Westin 8000 lb EW8000 (nylon) at 350, the price is so right with these two, thoughts? I'm thinking about going with Goodyear Dutatrac's because they look awesome and grip fairly well in cold conditions due to softer rubber, with my next choices being either the Hankook RF10s or the BFG T/A KOs, did I make the right choice? It's a fairly rough ride (I know, not bought for comfort) but can I make my ride any smoother than it is for highway driving, or is that all due to the lift kit and current MTs, or just the Wrangled period? Any suggestions as to what I should do next??

PS I only offroaded once, and will probably do it half a dozen times a year (snow 7-8 months out if the year here sometimes)... Much appreciated!

Nice JK man. My TJ rides rough as a tractor, so I'd guess it's a jeep thing

Ya know, I never was really feeling the 4 door for the majority of the time I was searching, but I had to go with what worked for me, and that cargo space with the 2 door just wasn't happening. No regrets at all! Thanks.
