New guy from CA

Howdy folks, Dave here.

Ever since getting my license at age 16 I've wanted a Jeep. At the end of my junior year, I began to look around for a suitable one, only to discover that my dream was a bit over budget for a 17 year old working part-time at Disneyland. I came across and fell in love with a 1967 VW Beetle (that I still drive today), and for nearly 11 years the two of us have had a grand time traveling the streets and freeways of Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego. But the desire for a Jeep still lurked in my mind, and it grew stronger and stronger over the years. After much research and deliberation, I found myself a beautiful 2004 TJ Rubicon and brought it home 3 weeks ago. It appears to be very unmolested, other than the addition of 33 inch tires and a 3 inch BL.

So far I've cleaned out the throttle body and IAC, as well as changed all of the fluids. I just picked up and will be putting on a 1 inch BL and 2 inch BB to replace the 3 inch BL, just to tide me over while I save for a proper suspension lift.

That's all for now! I'm sure we'll chat again as I delve a little more into the world of Jeeping. Thanks!
