So I have been lurking here since I decided to get back into Jeeps. I used the info I gathered here to decide on my purchase.
I bought a 2012 2door JK Sport!
Minor Mods at this point:
Rubicon Rock Rails
JKUR 18/59 springs and shocks
33" DuraTrac on stock wheels and SpyderTrak Spacers
I have been in the 4x4 community since I was 15, so many many years ago.
My first real experence was in a CJ7 doing the Rubicon and SierraTrek.
I bought my First CJ7 when I was 20, I really miss her
3" spring Lift, 2" body lift, 33"x12.5" on 10" Turbine mag wheels, Detroit Lockers and Warn Locking hubs, custom d44 front and rear - The works!
My exGF didnt like riding in it so she talked me into buying a Chevy s10, at least it was a ZR2, which I beat the crap out of and sold it 10 years later on cash for clunkers to get my wife (not the same girl) a Honda Fit.
I got a Tacoma 4x4 after that and kept it until I got the Jeep. I thought I needed a truck since we bought a house, but I still snowboard all the time and will not be without a rig until I cannot do that anymore. I used the truck as a truck 10 times in 5 years, so when I asked the wife if I could have a Jeep she said of course.
She loves my Jeep
nice upgrade there
So there you have it!
Keep the Rubber side down!
