Me new jeep

Hey, I guess I'm a newbie. ( hope to loose that name real fast). First off! Gotta thank my sugar mama for gettin me my Jeep! Thank ya Baby!!! I got a 2012 Wrangler Call of duty edition. I'm lovin it. It's my first Jeep. I'm no stranger to off road build ups but I'll have lots of questions in future. Thanks for all the help to come. My plans. I call it an 80/20. 80% on road. (it's my daily driver) 20% off road. I want a mild lift and want to run 35's. I like to maintain good on road ride. But have decent off road capabilities. Add some lights and get some more storage. Done some reading on front drive shaft issues on the new 3.6L. Wondering what's the best but cheapest fix. Willing to spend the money for a solid ride but don't want to go crazy either. Also, seen some pics with 16 inch rims. I thought you had to run 17's due to the brakes. Is this true? Thanks fer lettin this old boy join ur community. I like the jeep thing. (the waves, flashing lights and the willingness to talk at every gas station I've been to. Jeep people seem to be good people.

You can go all the way down to 15s if you get the right wheel and 16s will generally run with no problems. I run 16" ProComp wheels with 315/75R16 Duratracks.

I made me a monster!!I haven't even made final decisions on what mods to get and my wife drags me down to the dealership to order a 10th anniversary edition. 4 door. Can't say as I blame her. I've been reading on drive shaft issues when lifting a 2012. Still confused. Imformation over load. I have a manual. Looking at AEV 2.5 dualsport sc. 33 or 35 tires. Haven't decided. Is the DS hitting a big issue? How big? No rush. Gotta build a garage first.
