2nd Jeep, First Wrangler

Hey everyone. I'm new here but not new to the Jeep lifestyle. About 10 years ago, I had a 92 XJ 2 door that I went everywhere in and loved it. I ended up getting rid of it for better gas mileage and have regretted that decision for years. Yesterday, I bought a 2008 JK 2 door with the 6 speed manual, a slight Revtek lift, some bigger tires, a nice bumper and a 9000 LB Warn winch with the synthetic cable. It has performance exhaust and a cold air intake and feels more powerful than my Cherokee ever did. My plans are to keep it about as tall as it is, but upgrade a few more things like the rear bumper, lockers and an easy sway bar disconnect, some security upgrades for the interior (Tuffy console and glove box) and replace the plastic side steps and fender flares with some Poison Spyder gear. I'm in the SE/Central Washington area so if there are any other Jeepers in my area, feel free to hit me up. I'll get more pictures later.

My other ride is a motorcycle so I'm used to the wave. My wife thinks it is hilarious that both my vehicles have such a following.
