Newb from SC

Hello folks, new here from SC. Just brought the new JKU Sport home Saturday. Now the fun begins. I've owned a few 4x4's over the years from a CJ5, Toyo land cruiser, Chevy and Fords. This is by far the one I have been the most interested in. First thing is to get the Jeep leveled until I can do suspension lift and change tire/wheels to 33x12.5x17 or 18? Any suggestions appreciated. I'll be asking a ton of questions from you, the experts.

If you are planning on doing much off-roading and want to air-down your tires for traction, a smaller rim is better. However, because this is the newbie check-in area, you may not get the answers you are looking for. I suggest you check out this forum area and post your questions there, I think you'll get a better response.
