father in law bought me a rubicon

well like the title says my father in law bought me a 03 rubicon. I had an xj for about a year and took it out to Colorado with him over the summer, he also has an 03 rubicon of his own. the xj didn't do too well in the higher elevation so I sold it and a week later my father in law got me rubicon. I think the real reason behind it was that we just had our first child and the jeep is really for him. Anyways I'm putting 2" coil spacers with a 1" body lift on it so I can run 33's. Then its off to colorado and moab, probably go down to kansas quite a bit too. Anyways I'm new to the forum so I thought I would say hello.

Congrates on the Rubicon, and welcome to the site. I think you should tell us more about it and post some pics on here so we can see it.

Welcome!

Welcome to the forum! I must admit to some feelings of jealousy here. Things were relatively strained with my father-in-law because I eloped with his daughter and it was always "Mister" instead of "Dad" - all the way until he passed away. Oh, well, can't have it all so I'll be glad for you. Again, welcome!

Welcome to WF. I think you'll find this site is a pretty good source for answering just about any question you'll have. You gotta get some pics up of the Rubi though!

Geez, must be nice. I'd settle for a tank of gas as a gift, let alone an entire Rubicon. Welcome to the site.
