New here, and first jeep

We just bought our first jeep, a used '95 with the 2.5l and 116k.
The closest I've come to a jeep in the past was an '81 FJ40 Landcruiser. Man - that thing was fun, and indestructible - but a tank.

This will be a spare vehicle, just something to take out and have fun in, take the top off in the warmer months, keep some of the miles off the newer vehicles.

Right now, it has 30s on it (FORD wheels), but we're getting a set of 5 spoke Jeep wheels from a guy at work today (cheap). Plans are a 2-3" lift when these tires wear out, 31" tires. It's a hard top, so, we'll also be getting a soft top and/or bikini top, windjammer and tonneau.

04 Sahara, with a lift, some stuff, and a few things, on some 33's, blah, blah, blah.
A perpetual work in progress. Too much to list, not nearly enough to matter.
My RigRater Score: 387RRv1.0 with a BOA of 18.92 (and just how exactly is this going to help me over that big arse rock?)

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!
