New to Jeeps, not wheeling. From Seattle.

Hello Wrangler forum.

I bought my 04 Rubicon in May. It came with what I think is a 2.5 inch lift and bald ass tires, not much more. I've added tires, wheels, bumpers and a winch and a hard top.
It's been on the trail several times, I really dig it.

The pic from the add when it was for sale.

Sittin' as it looks now with my buddy's '12 Rubi. He traded in his plain old 09 JK soon after I picked up mine. lol

Before that, I had my little 85 SR5 for almost 10 years of wheeling. Great little truck, sold it to my buddy.

And before that, it was Subarus. No really.

I built a total of 14 lifted Subarus, they turned out something like this:

lol, my first one, about 1994.

I even took part in a trip where we took 3 of them thru part of the Rubicon. No really. Ironically, it was during the weekend they were introducing the Rubicon. Summer of '03.

(yes, that's Cadillac Hill)

I've even spent a bunch of years behind the wheel doing Rally X.

So yeah. New to the Jeep, but wheeling is not new to me. I'll have plenty of questions about how to deal with the Rubicon, hopefully folks here will be patient with me.

With any luck, some of you will be local and want to go wheeling. The snow is only around the corner.
