New from Iowa

Hi everyone. I just bought a 2000 TJ (my first wrangler! ). I am pretty happy with it so far even though it is a 2.5L (I really wanted the 4.0, but this was too good of a deal to pass up).

Im thinking about getting a RC 2.5" lift and putting some 31s or 32s on it (it has 27s right now) along with some baja wheels. Please feel free to offer up some suggestions. Keep them reasonably priced though because it is a winter/2nd vehicle so i dont want to dump too much money in it.

Thanks. I do plan on putting some money into it, but i have too many other expensive hobbies. Hopefully a lift and tires will satisfy me

My suggestion is, sell the other cars and use the money to buy some parts for the jeep. Problem solved! Now aren't you glad you found us?

Its kinda sad but I actually did that once and my Jeep wasn't running.

Is one of those hobbies Women? Spend too much money and time on your Jeep and that will take care of itself.

It looks like a fun Jeep, and with a small lift and nice tires, you'll be rocking the Iowa cornfields. Heck, leave it alone and you'll still have lots of fun.

I think you could adjust your top a bit, pick up a little of that slack right above your head. You'll appreciate that when it snows next.

Well, my other car is an 07 RX8 and when i get rid of that I want to get an E46 M3. I just love sports cars too much not to own one.

Actually its guitar and other musical gear but having a girlfriend doesnt help either. And yes, about the only place to off road are corn fields but hopefully ill be able to find some cool places in iowa to off road.
