New JKUR owner from SoCal.

Hey everyone. Ive been lurking for the 2 weeks or so since I bought a '16 JKUR. I've got a ton of good info so far and figured I should join and introduce myself.

My name is Matt. I live in Apple Valley, CA and work in the LA area as a Paramedic. I spend a lot of time off-roading in Big Bear, Eastern Sierras, Death Valley, etc. I have been a Toyota guy for years and just finished a 2016 Tacoma build a few months ago. After a few trips to Death Valley with some Jeep friends this spring, I've come to terms with the fact that the Tacoma isn't a Jeep. After investing $50k into the Taco, I decided to sell and get a 2016 JKU Rubicon.

So far, I love the thing. The only issue I had was that the Jeep was running hot, 240F or so. There was some air in the cooling system. I burped the system and bought some of that $35 per gallon purple crap and I'm good to go now.

Besides that, I've got some parts on order. Teraflex 3.5 short arm lift, Fox shocks, BFG KM2 37x12.5R17s, Method NV 17x8.5 4.75"BS, G2 chromoly axles, Synergy C Gussets, Yukon 4.88 R&Ps with rebuild kits, Teraflex tire carrier, stubby antenna, and Kicker speakers. Still looking for bumpers among other things.

Thanks for the info so far and thanks in advance for any advice in the future.
