New in Eastern Washington

I am excited to get back in a Jeep as I recently bought an orange "Crush" Wrangler Unlimited. My first car was a 4 wheel drive 66 International TravelAll when I got my first drivers license in 1975. When I was 9 my mom got my dad a 43 Willys plus a spare for parts that she had a body off restoration done on. I learned to drive in it by the time I was 11 on the few acres my folks had. My dad always said when I was 16 it would be mine. Well when I was about 15 & 1/2 my sister's car was t-boned by a NAPA delivery vehicle and while my sister's car was repaired my dad let her borrow the Jeep. It being an original equipped 43 four banger he told her if you put gas in it, put oil in it. She didn't, the motor ceased and my dad sold it all and I ended up with the 66 TravelAll instead. Well my dad passed away this past winter so I took a little of what he left me for a down payment and I finally got my Jeep. I LOVE IT! I am sure I will have many more questions to follow this post. Thanks for the welcome Any advice on how changing the stock 225/R7016 tires for something a bit more aggressive and taller will affect the handling on my basic Sport model Wrangler?

Oh, my Jeep is a 2012 Wrangler Unlimited Sport. I have a friend with a 2011 that I've driven and the new motor in the 2012's kicks butt!
