New to the Forum from Melbourne, Fl

Well,

Got off Active Duty after almost 13 years and have a contract on a house here in Melbourne now. Had 3 Jeeps while on active duty and currently jeepless. Looking to get into a TJ or a LJ preferably the 06 Unlimited Rubicon as I've dumped thousands upon thousands in my old jeep to get to the rubicon level.

Selling all my current flock of vehicles, and just sold my motorcycle - was a 77 CB550 that I cafe raced out Once the contract closes on the house and I move in, I'll be buying the Jeep.

Plan for the build is simple: Rubicon or Teraflex long arm suspension, 35's and utilize the lockers. I will not go crazy on the build and it will be armour and a good tire carrier other than that, hope to get back out to Colorado and Moab in it as I was stationed out that way a good 12 years ago and want to hit the trails up again.

Going back to Jeep - if a proper JK comes along, I might jump in it as well but preference is 04-06 Unlimited with the 6speed

Just wanted to update, I'm in Iraq now - long story but I actually bought my Jeep last weekend Found a Cherry 2000 TJ Sahara with the 44 and 58k original miles with both tops

Ordering up some parts for her soon as I get to leave Iraq in less than a Month

She's gold and she will be recieving some updates soon.

After hours upon hours of research I'm down to a Short arm system and probably OME 2.5 or BDS 3 inch then I'm doing the DIY highliner on the front and rear to make use of 35's with only a 2 or 3 inch lift.

Will do a locker in the rear and keep the front open as I'll probably be trying to find a better front axle in the near future Just thought I would update you all
