Hey, thanks for the info! I really haven't been offroad much aside from hitting forest roads when camping, but I'll definitely hit some ***easy*** trails with it. I'm thinking about a 2" lift with 31" tires, mostly because I want to keep the costs down, but I'm also a little concerned about raising the center of gravity too high. The Jeep also will be my daily commuter and I drive about 30 miles a day, mostly on city freeways, so I don't want to deteriorate that ride experience too much.
Also, what about security? I thought it was pretty darn ironic that a mere four hours before I was to go and purchase my Jeep, I read that the Wrangler is now the second most stolen vehicle, right after the Acura Integra.
I don't know if I want to just get a club or actually get an alarm. I never bothered with one in the past, but now that I'm driving a yellow vehicle that really stands out, I'm not so certain.
