Another Newbie

Hi all, I'm looking at possibly purchasing, from my local dealer, a 2012 Wrangler Sport 4 Door. The vehicle comes with the Mopar 3 inch lift kit, Fox/Mopar shocks, 35 inch tires (Pro Comps I believe). Mickey Thompson Sidebiter wheels, a Warn M8000 winch, front and rear custom bumpers, Mopar auxiliary lighting. Also, the Jeep is fairly well optioned out. From what I can tell, all the accessories are Mopar products. And all of this equipment is dealer installed and covered by the factory warranty.

I am new to the Jeep world and really don't know much about them. I used to own a lifted Chevy pickup, that I constructed and know the pitfalls there. Anything I should know about or be aware of with this Jeep and all the accessories? For example, are the stock axles up to the task of moving larger tires and wheels, factory brakes OK, transmission issues (stick or auto), T-case problems, etc.?

I intend to use the vehicle as a daily driver and weekend toy. Any and all input welcomed and thanks in advance.
