New guy from Iowa

I am new to this site and new to Jeeps. I have motorcycles & an old hot rod Chevy van. I may be looking to put a Jeep Wrangler in my future. I live in Iowa where it is pretty flat. So, off roading is probably not what I will use the Jeep for. Maybe some light off roading, but not much. However, I only like the look of the Jeeps with larger tires and wheels. Actually, I really only like black wheels on Jeeps. So, I am here to pick all of your brain, look at photos of your Jeeps and decide what I want to get. Any advice right off the bat on the new 2013 Jeeps would be great. I want something that can handle the 33" to 35" tires with stock suspension and maybe a 2" lift. Should I get a soft top or a hard top? I hope to find the answers to these questions on this forum.
