Smile First time Jeep owner, long time off-road enthusiast

I just recently purchased a 2000 Jeep Wrangler TJ, and I'm looking forward to getting it dirty! I've off-roaded all over the planet, thanks to the military. This Jeep is mainly all stock, but I want to build it up. Bad thing is that I'm at a loss on where to start. I'm living in Louisville, Ky. I've owned many 4x4 vehicles in my life and have always had a blast going off-road with them. Any suggestions on where to start are welcomed, and I'll post pics.

Welcome to the most formidable off-road vehicle ever manufactured. If you get a chance, attend a Jeep Jamboree USA to get a feel for what this thing can do which, when I did, was far more than I ever imagined. You'll find your previous experience could be pressed to new limits. Again, welcome to the "crawl."
