New guy

Guess i'm one of the new guys...... so here is my intro! Ive frequented the WF in the past and have always been able to find answers to perplexing jeep issues. One day it dawned on me.... why not join and maybe help someone else find an answer to thier jeep issue! My name is Marc, I own a 2006 LJ (sounds like an AA intro, doesnt it?) I recently retired from Law Enforcement and spent 4 years as a Motor Officer. Prior to that I spent 4 years in the military. In 2006 I bought my LJ and pretty much kept it stock for about 2 years. I awoke one morning to thoughts of jeep grandeur and started heaving money at it. I started pretty basic with 2 inch springs and shocks and 31 BFG's on some soft 8's. After a couple of offroad trips, I quickly realized that in Texas, bigger is better and upgraded to 6" long arm, 4.56 gears, 35's, SYE, short-shaft and a winch. I'm like 6'2" tall and found that I needed more room to haul stuff to and from the trails; so I added a Daves Rack. One solemn day, I found a mud hole that was 150ft deep (i'm exagerating) and tried to ford it. The Horn on my breather box was barely 1/2 inch above the water and i got sooooo scared that the next day I went out and bought a sSafari Snorkel. Ive recently added flat fenders, frontbumper with ghetto homemade stinger and rear swing away.
I am not a serious rock climber so I may or may not add lockers.

Thanks for this forum and the expert advice it offers to new guys like me!
