Smile New to the TJ world

Well, my wife and I have had a 1964 CJ-5 for about 8 years now. It was bone stock when we bought it except for a newish paint job. After having it about a year or two we decided to put a lift on it and throw on some bigger tires. My son and i installed a 4" Superlift and then installed some 33 1250 BF Goodrich mud terrains and we were good to go. It served us good over the years towing it behind our motorhome to various camping spots. We did some wheeling in it but nothing major. That Dana 25 front axle always made me nervous. It developed a wobble that was not fun. Anyway, We decided it was time to upgrade. We found an 06 Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon that we liked so we bought it. Before even driving it off the lot, we had it lifted 4" and our 33's from our old jeep installed to it (the place we bought it from just sells and services Jeeps). So far we are extremely happy with it. I look forward to finding out more about these Jeeps and maybe helping out if I can.

80K Miles on it. kind of a lot for an O6 but it was stock height when we bought it. Im thinking it was somebodies daily driver (on the freeway i guess) and not a lot of off road action.
