new to wranglers from VT.

Hey guys, i just picked up my first wrangler today. Ive owned a couple highly modded xjs in the past. But time for a "real jeep" i suppose lol. The rig i picked up is a 98 2.5 5-speed with 85k on the tach. Its kind of modded but nothing too severe. The mods that i know of are: 3 or 3.5" ome short arm lift, 4.56 gears, spartan rear locker, full armor all the way around as far as body panels, some wide ass aluminum rims with radial tsl 33s, and airaid intake and banks exhaust. Not sure of anything else thus far. Well tell me what you think. Hope the pics work for you guys.
