New guy from WA state...

Hello all, my name is Dave and I live in Washington state. Just bought my first Jeep, it's a 95 YJ. Bought it bone stock (except for wheels/tires and CD player) 2 weeks ago. Has 207k on it, but had a new(?) engine at 177k. A week and a half later I sent it to Les Schwab for new lift/wheels/tires. Chose a Fabtech 3.5" lift, and as my research showed, it's more like a full 4.5". Did 15X8's with 33/12.5's. Bought a Warn front bumper as it didn't have a front or rear bumper when I purchased it. Thing runs awesome, doesn't smoke, and doesn't leak a drop of anything. Onle two issues I'm noticing are fairly common from forum surfing I have done; 1) exhaust leak (ticking) when you first start it until it gets warm, and 2) after driving for a while, it can be tough to get it in 1st so I have to go 2nd or 3rd first. I'm guessing the getting into first issue is synchros, but we'll see...I can live with it the way it is, it isn't my daily driver. Here's a pic of when I first got it a couple weeks ago, and then how it sits now with the new stuff. Have a great night y'all!
