Smile Greetings from NW Montana

I ordered an extended range gas tank from GenRight this week and figured I should join this fine forum. The folks at GenRight seem to be very helpful and I'm looking forward to getting back on the road. I've had my '98 TJ Sport (4.0L, 5spd) for 15 years (and 87,000 miles) and hope to have it for at least another 15! I used to do a lot of offroading in Hawaii and installed 4.56 gears front and back many years ago, running 31" tires with no lift. I've had an old Ramsey winch from day one that I bought used from a tow truck driver for $150 and it still works. I installed MasterCraft seats around the same time I did the gear swap. The most recent upgrades include a Rubicon Express 3.5" lift with SYE and just about every upgrade possible to the standard package such as fully adjustable upper and lower control arms and front/rear trackbars. I also have 33" BFG M/T KM2 tires on Ultra Type 164 rims (plus spare), Bushwacker flat fender flares, Smittybilt front and rear bumpers with tire carrier, VisionX Vortex headlights, VisionX lightbar and a Hi-Lift jack. I'd like to add a GenRight roll cage later in the year, put in lockers front and rear and possibly upgrade the winch. Other than that, I plan to break parts before I upgrade them so that I know they're needed.

P.S. I'm amazed at how well the Jeep drives with the suspension upgrades. It's WAY better than stock.

Thanks for the welcome RufBoy! I forgot to mention that I have a Banks intake, header and exhaust along with Smittybilt Rocker guards with step. Also, my driveway is 300 yards long so I plan on adding a front receiver and blade of some type so that I don't get snowed in this winter.
