Hey guys!

What's happening?
I'm admittedly a bit of a forum wh0re,... Been on all the sites for years, reading all kinds of stuff, and stealing ideas where I can. And not contributing much (or at all) for that matter.
So I thought I'd pop in and say hello before I ask for your help/advice with a project I'm working on.
So hello, I took my first ride in a jeep about ten years ago in my buddies 86 cj 7 and I was hooked. But it took about six years before I'd actually pull the trigger on my own.
I originally wanted a tj rubicon, almost won an auction for one too but came up about $200 short. Fast forward a year or so and I'd warmed up to the jks a bit, and after hearing about the new engines in the 2012+ models I was sold.
I came across my 2012 jkr on autotrader a year off lease, it was dozer yellow (I call it the orange bastard) with the tan or brown lower dash which I found really appealing with all the plain black interiors out there. It was totally stock, and I loved it.
Of course that wouldn't last, I wanted the 35's bumpers all the bells and whistles.
I took the cheap route and installed a 2.5 BB from TF and a smitty xrc winch bumper with a warn winch. Next was the 35" (33.75?) KM2's and black rock d window wheels along with ace fabs rear bumper with tire carrier. I've made a few small mods here and there but that's about it. Future mods include OBA, (which I'll be posting about shortly for advice) and probably a proper metal cloak lift (unless the experts can talk me out of it)
Anyway thanks for all the past advice and ideas. See you on the trails!
