Just bought my first Jeep.

I am anew proud owner of a bone stock 05 Rubicon. It looks like its never even been put into 4wd before. I wanted a stock jeep to start with, nice to know nobody had jerry rigged anything or cut corners. So far I'm loving owning a jeep, its not like driving anything else.

I plan to keep it a daily driver, but make it a little more adventure friendly, as I plan to use it for finishing and hunting in the sierra mountains and hitting the trials with friends. So I want to add a 4inch RC long arm or X series lift, black rock rims, 33inch cooper stt tires, Smittybilt 10k winch, front and rear bumpers, rock sliders, diff covers, CB radio, new stereo, added cooler for the auto tranny, and a few engine mods to put some more pep in her step.

Thanks. I looked for the right jeep for a long time. I'm glad I waited till this one came along.

I read a few reviews and watched some videos on YouTube and people sounded pretty happy with their kits. I know before the changed their spring rates a few years ago, people weren't that happy, but since the change, it sounds like mostly positive reviews. My choice could always change, I'll keep looking at other options till the day to buy comes.
