New to the Forum, 1st time owner

Hello all, I'm sure the name probably gives it away but I'm from Tennessee and just picked up my jeep 2 days ago. It's a 1997 model TJ, 6 cyl 4.0, 4" skyjacker suspension lift, Rancho steering stabilizer, and 33" Yokohama Geolander tires.

Needless to say she sits rather high. Well, higher than my Mustang.

This said, I'm not use to how it handles, love the jeep, but I know it needs some work. It doesn't have the death wobble but the back end moves slightly on bumps or breaks at high speeds. Also the front end needs to be worked on. I knew buying a 19 year old vehicle would be a project.

I found this forum looking for ways to help get her stabilized better and learn as much about jeeps as I can. Expect questions from a noob but I am familiar with the search bar. I'm Admin on a much different forum using the same system.
