New Jeep owner

Hi,
I'm new to the world of jeeps. I just bought a new 2015 JK, and I had no idea that there was this much of a following, and how much aftermarket support there is for them.
I was seriously looking at buying a SxS. I wanted a off road veichel that I could take my whole family out in. But considering the cost of buying a SxS and a trailer to tow it, I thought just buying a Jeep might be a lot easier. In he end, it seemed like the better choice. I ended up spending about the same on my new Jeep as I would of on a SxS and trailer. Plus it was time to retire my daily driver anyways.

I work at in a automotive shop, and I can get just about any part for cost. Because of that I decided to buy the base model 2 door, and build it up myself.
I'm not planning on driving it up cliffs or any of that other crazy stuff I know they can do. I just want a capible off road rig that I can take out for some mild trailing.
So far I've put in a 2" lift kit, and replaced the factory rims and tires with some toyo open country 33's and rims with a bit of offset



This is where she's at now. But I have plans for much much more.

Cut that front bumper and it really cleans up the front.

Thanks! And I'm replacing the bumpers sometime in January.
