Howdy from SoCal

Hello all!
I just purchased a 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited X to cart my two sons and I around LA in fun style!
As it is barebones, I'm looking to add a few bells and whistles and figured there is no better place to start for ideas and advice than other commited owners.
I haven't owned a Jeep since I was 17, when I had a 1976 CJ7 Quadra Trac in Sinclair Dinosaur green with the requisite bikini top. My very first traffic stop was for having seven girls hanging out of the back and sides screaming like, well, teenage girls. Ever since the smirk I got from my dad that got him smacked by my mom when I got home, I've wanted to have another Jeep. I lost the original when I went to boot camp and of course, life had other plans for my vehicles.

Fast forward to last week and I made up my mind that if my boys and I were going to have to get another vehicle, it was going to be fun. I was driving through town and saw an Unlimited Sahara and realized that I could get a baby seat for my 2 year old in there, I was sold!

I promise to use the search function as much as possible in order to lower the number of dumb questions- but I hope you'll be patient as I try and learn from you all!
