Newbie from PA checking in

Hey Everyone,

I'm from Pittsburgh PA and finally pulled the trigger this week on a 2014 JKU Rubicon with only 25k miles on it. I've been cruising this forum for a couple years now while I've been looking at wranglers and I was impressed by the knowledge and experience of the members and their willingness to share it. This is obviously a great resource for someone like me. I've been into cars my whole life but have very minimal experience with lifts and 4x4's. This Rubicon I picked up is running BF Goodrich 315/70/17's on stock Rubi rims. Rides great but I have no idea what was done to it underneath. Bought it from a new car dealer as a certified used vehicle but the branch didn't sell jeeps and the mechanics couldn't tell me anything about the lift. I plan on taking it to a Jeep dealer to see what has been modified. It's probably about a 3 inch lift. No pucks on the springs tho and stock Rubi shocks. Plenty of clearance with the 35's so i know its lifted somehow. Before I get it out on the trails I want to make sure it's good to go.

Anyway....I look forward to learning some stuff from all you vets.


Thanks!

-Mike
