Hello from Ohio

Hello. As most members on here, I have been reading WF for a long time now, but am just now posting. I have 2 rigs: all stock 04 TJR and modded 05 LJR. The TJR was/is and lesson in "rust/rot potentials of TJ's" and the LJR is a lesson in "knowing your wants/uses before you buy and/or build." I have spent the last year undoing everything the PO did to the LJR and redoing it properly with quality parts. However, I may be redoing some of what I've done as well without a properly thought out and planned build plan/direction. The TJR, for past year, sits parked outside while the "rust" issue is figured out (it's a long legal story and embarrassing). Nevertheless, here I am and here are a few pics of my Rubis.
First is on way back from LJR purchase...and next few are what it looks like today. Same on the TJR. Anyway, glad to be here and finally revealing myself.
