I'm not from FL but my folks spend a lot of time in Tampa/St. Pete/Sarasota/Bradenton area and I really like it there.

Plus I go down to the keys every single chance I get, I'm actually trying to figure out a way to move there and not be broke.

Where are you from?

PS - Jeep looks good... it will look even better with no top & no doors.

Welcome! I'm new to the site also, but have had my Jeep for awhile. I too have been searching through this site since I bought my Jeep. I live in Cape Canaveral area here in FL. In the beginning, I didn't realize how many people in FL have Jeeps since there are no places to climb. It's mostly mudding here, but up where you are there's more elevation if you're into the offroading aspect. Either way, after time if you're like me, "only just one" upgrade will turn into many.

Welcome from Jax. Not a whole lotta hills, but enough sun to keep the top off most of the year.
