Hello from Lafayette

Hey gang, I am the owner of a brand new second hand 09 Wrangler UNlimited X. I picked it up about a week before I came offshore for 21 days. I have been searching the Wrangler forum and cannot wait to get home and get some mods done. I will not be hitting the offroad trails since I only have a 2WD but I will be hitting the same roads I curse on my motorcycle. Are there any local meet and greets during the month around town? I have added some pictures. Incase one did not notice by the pictures I am a LSU fan. GO TIGERS!!!!

howdy lafayette jeeper.. two wheel or one wheel drive, yes it is a jeep..

If you installed a full locker in the rear, you will be amazed at the abilities it will exhibit.. I installed a full locker on mine and am impressed when I do not have to put it in 4wd as often as I expected.. the light vehicle, locked differential will be plenty capable..I have ridden in many 4wd, that the owners enjoy how amazing they pull in two wheel drive...
just saying..

Oh I am from lafayette, too.. I have an older sahara.

Thats probably what I'm going to shoot for. I'm trying not to put too much more money in this jeep because when I graduate college I'm looking to get a 2013 JKUR Gecko . Do you have any suggestions for rear locker or LSD? I do ALOT of highway driving so I want something DD friendly
