Talking New From Georgia

Hey folks, I am new here from GA and am soon a proud owner of a new 2011 Wrangler, right now it is still sitting at the dealership and we are awaiting funds from a settlement to come in for it. we got a killer deal on it and it only has 7200 miles on it.
We tried the four door jeep but didn't like it.
A little history on me and my family.
I used to live in Vegas where we had a 98 Wrangler and we just loved that Jeep, however the need arose that forced us to sell it. Later on we ended up buying an Avalanche and we just loved that thing as well but it ended up being way too big for us, so just 5 months ago we traded it in on a new 2012 Camaro, which is my personal car. Do to the fact that we live out on 3/4 mile of a dirt road we couldn't get by too much longer with two passenger cars(we also have a Monte Carlo) My wife has always been a Jeep girl and has recently recieved aproval on a settlement and so we went out on friday and found our new Jeep. She set her price (due to the fact that it will be a cash deal) and they finally broke down and accepted the deal, and it turned out to be a killer deal. We put money down to hold that Jeep and the deal and are now just waiting to get the money from the settlement. Right now as you can see in the pic we will drastically need new rims and tires and will be putting a lift kit to get it up around another 2~3 inches. From there we really dont know what we are going to add on to it but believe me.....I have plans for it. Ya it will be my wifes car but I love the idea of putting mods into it for her, she is a great driver in a wrangler and I actually enjoy being a passenger, although she doesn't mind me driving it as well, I just prefer her to drive most of the time because I drive a lot during the weekdays and it is rather relaxing to have her drive, besides that she bought me my dream car with the Camaro( I am a member of Forum)
I will be just as much a part of working on this Jeep as my wife will be and am really looking forward to working on it and getting information from you all.

On another note- our first order of business will be to pull the doors off, drop the top and go right out and get her all muddy, nothing looks nicer than a muddy Jeep Wrangler.
