New owner!

Introduced myself in the TJ forum... Doing the same here..



Hey! first post, Ive been lurking around the forums for a week or 2, and just registered.
just bought my first Jeep! Picked up a 99 TJ sport 5 spd 4.0.
Love it!
My step dad has an old CJ with a fuel injected chevy V8, and was my motivation to finally pull the trigger. Always been a bit of a gear head, and always tinker, so I am sure with due time I will be replacing drive trans.. I had a LS1 powered RX7 about 7 years ago, and am a big fan of those chevy v8's..
I picked it up the weekend of Thanksgiving and have been pretty pleased with my choice so far.
Few things I am going to tackle first will be the audio. I am not a fan of the overpowering thumping bass anymore, but I do enjoy quality sound. I have already installed a new sony head unit. I have the basic 2 speaker sound bar, and am intending to upgrade the entire sound bar. Any suggestions? I saw the VDP, and am considering that option..
I am also going to be getting a security console soon, and am wondering if anyone could share some opinions on the Tuffy security insert? or would the Tuffy series II be a better option? or are there better options?
How about the upgrading of my stock suspension to a used stock Rubicon suspension?

I know my way around an engine, but 4wd/off roading and suspensions is a whole new world for me

Thanks in advance for any input and advice guys! I look forward to being a contributing member!
I picked her up in pretty much stock condition.

Ill get pictures up soon!

As far as security goes you
May also look at the ivault from Quadratec. It's cool you put your cd player in it and it all metal and has a metal door that goes on the front so when you have your top off you don't have to worry about people stealing your radio.
