New TJ in Michigan

Hi everyone! I finally found my TJ after months and months of searching - 2006 TJ SE bone stock with 50k and not a spec of rust on the body or undercarriage. The 2.4l isn't going to win any races, but this is going to be a fly fishing/trail-rig and I still have a 2001 XJ. It has stock steelies with ugly-ass chrome wheel skins (hub caps) and pretty lame tires, so I ordered some soft 8's and duratracs which are due to be delivered monday. I flushed, refilled, then bled my power steering pump which solved the noise in cold weather issue. Then I changed the fluid in the differentials and in the oh-so-clunky NSG370 trans. I used Pennzoil Synchromesh and the difference in shifting is night and day. Not many plans yet, maybe some auxiliary lights, a winch in case I'm out by myself, and I'd like to fab a trunk that extends from the rear hatch to the front seats. I want to keep the weight down because of the 4-banger, so big heavy bumpers are probably out of the question. I'd love to hear some good ideas from you experienced Jeepers.

I'm a new Jeep owner and am wondering if anybody knows someone who does re gearing for a 'reasonable' price. I am in the W Michigan area.

Sorry man, I haven't had a vehicle regeared. Try to find a local Jeep club and ask someone because I'm sure someone there will have an answer for you. Good luck!

Some nice lockable rod holders across the top would be pimpin'. I've done some stuff for some trout guys. Used to be one myself.
