Not completely new...

Hey guys. After doing months of research on them I just picked up my first jeep a few days ago and figured I should post some info and pics. I've been browsing the forums and posting here and there for a few months now, hence the title of the thread. Even though buying a used jeep can be stressful sometimes it sure has payed off so far. I picked up a 2003 jeep wrangler 4.0 liter 5 speed with 101k miles on it.
Parts list:
3' zone suspension lift
KC front fog lights(brand new but for some reason can't get them to go on. It's on my to do list)
Rancho steering stabilizer
RE adjustable front trackbar
RE adjustable lower control arms(front only)
Uniden bearcat 880 cb
4' firestick antenna
Polk speakers in dash and soundbar
33x12.5x15 goodyear wrangler duratrac tires
ultra motor sports 174 15x8 wheels
superwinch LP8500
Has aftermarket rear/front bumpers but unsure of brand.
That's all I can think of off the top of my head. There's lots of other parts that I have but can't think of them at the moment or I don't think there is a point in mentioning them.

What I plan on doing next:
I'd really like to rip out the carpets and install a bed liner, right now I'm stuck between monstaliner and rhinoliner. They both have really good feedback from what I've read.
I also want to raise the t-case up and install a DC shaft and a SYE and maybe do a TT at the same time if the funds are available.

So far all I've done mechanically wise to the jeep is fix a linkage adjustment, it wouldn't go into 4L. Extremely easy job and only took 10 minutes with a friends help.

I am however having an issue with a bikini top from quadratec. I installed it today and it seems to stay on while driving but it just doesn't seem very taut. Is it supposed to be like that? It also sticks out over the edges an inch or two on each side and makes me uncomfortable because I'm afraid the wind will get under it and pull it up because of this. It almost seems like it doesn't fit the jeep properly but I know for sure that it is the right top.

I'm located in Jacksonville, Fl if anyone else is from around there.

Well that's all I can think of right now. If you have any questions about the jeep then ask away.
