05 TJ Unlimited, New to So Cal

Whats up guys, new to socal. First jeep ever is an 05 TJ Unlimited, with 85k on the ODO.

It already has big tires and rims. Plus a Big Country lift (2 3/4" Don't quote me on that). Besides that everything else is stock.

I had a few questions on mods and stuff, if you would be so kind to answer or point me in the direction that would be great!

1. HID lights, I don't like the look of the stock lights (yellowish) I was wondering what the best option is. I've read on the forums LED is the way to go, but is there anything more cost effective? I don't need it for trailing (yet) so if I could just buy a bulb, what one should i get?

2.Gearing. I know when you, put bigger tires on and a lift, the gears should be done also. The PO did not do this, so whats my best bet? It is my DD.

3. Anyone interested in the SoCal area, that wants to trade rims? Just not a fan of the rims, but worst case scenario i plast-dip them black and they are STEALTHY lol...

4. Tune-up.. What should be done? What should be checked up on for these 2005 TJ unlimiteds specifically..

5. I have the death wobble.. need to read that thread..

Well thanks for bearing with my noob questions. Needles to say

As mentioned that 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.
