First time Jeep owner

Just purchased my first Jeep yesterday. I bought it because I needed more room for the family. I ran out of room after the 2nd baby in my 02 F-250 diesel. Unfortunately it was not a crew cab. Looking forward to learning from everyone here about these Jeeps and seeing what kind of cool things I can do to mine. 2011 Unlimited with a Mopar lift and 35s. Purchased as is in the photos on my profile. I think it needs to be calibrated for the wheels.

MBaker: I like your Jeep's nickname, "Ebony"! Looks spectacular for a third-owner Jeep. Only drawback I see is the 3.8L six leaving you disappointed with fuel mileage and power in comparison to your truck, but you have to haul the family around in something... I had an '06 Commander-Limited in black and chrome like your rig, and it suited us very well until the kids moved out...

I got my two-door Rubicon last month, and the only thing I miss is the 330hp hemi my Commander had...

Yeah, it's quite a big difference in the power and mileage dept. doesn't quite demand the same respect on the road, but we do what we have to for the kids. If I can't have my truck, this was really the only other vehicle I wanted. Jeep is from Missouri so, it's been spared the harsh salty roads until this winter and with only 37k miles I couldn't pass it up. Went to line-x today and got some numbers for rust prevention with body cavity wax and line-x on the rockers. Hopefully it will help!
