New to WF from SOCAL

Hello ...
So I recently bought my jeep, and couldn't wait for the sunny days here in SOCAL.
A 98 Tj Sport I6 with 69k miles, and got a kller deal on this baby !!! ... needed work but must say I was really happy to get my hands greased up ..

First thing I did was fixed the interior, as my DD, I wanted it to be comfortable so I changed the carpet, clean the interior and had custom seat covers made. Installed a stereo and fixed an electrical problem it had.
Then the fun stuff.... Installed a lift Kit myself.....
After reading WF and other sites, I decided to go with a Rough County 2.5 suspension lift kit, bought some MT classic II with some 33x12.5.15 rims... It TOTALLY changed the look ....... now looking for things here in there to keep upgrading such as gears (i got 3.07 now I think.. ) ... and a tire rack and tire carrier cause I don't got a spare ...... but little at a time..... I love this thing..... and can't wait each morning to get to work so I can drive it .......I even went to KOH this year and was awesome !!!
Here is some before and after pics of the lift and tires change

Welcome, check the tag on your rear axel, it will tell you your gear ratio. Probably 3.73.
